I have an upcoming 6 day trip that I'm getting ready for and was wondering what guys do to care for their reels while they are on long range trips. I'm planning on bringing a fresh water spray bottle to wash the salt off them each night but wonder if that is sufficient. Any tips or ideas would be appreciated.
That's what I do. I keep meaning to mix some Salt-X in the bottle but have yet to do so. Do bring a small tube of oil (I prefer Corrosion-X) to drop on the handle knob and, if you use a level wind, on the worm gear.
I keep mine wrapped up until I start fishing. Then I just fish; clean them up when I get back. Not seeing corrosion on 10 day trips. I think pulling the line off when I get home is more importnat than daily wash downs.
