    Brand spanking new cherry berry 110 flash minnow. I should check to see if I bent a hook.

    On a serious note went out this evening on MB and tide was super low and only caught the attached beast and1 SBB. Was working the drop shot, a swim bait and the 110. Not many people out weather was good. Was reaching areas I usually can’t cause tide was super low.
    My reel started sound a bit scratchy on the casting. Just took it apart and greased it up about 10 days ago so that is a bummer. So I got home and rinsed it well. I will oil the easy parts in the A:M and keep my fingers crossed.

    I've got 2 of the 150 Coastal reels and the squealing on cast is common to both reels. I rinse after each session and then after 3-4 sessions I remove the spool, clean off the gunk on spool shaft, and apply light reel oil. Its kind of a bummer given Diawa advertises the Coastal reels for saltwater. But, they are a nice as long as you keep up with cleaning.

    U know, a friend of mine that bought a brand new coastal (the dark blue one), complained about the same noise you’re describing. I thought it might be a spool bearing because i noticed it only made noise during casting, but its so disappointing to read its a common issue. Sadly, when daiwa outsourced their manufacturing to i think its malaysia or thailand(?), there seems to be more QC problems.

    Nowadays, if it isnt magsealed, i feel like the common rinsing under running water may actually harm the reels more. I now use a spray bottle to coat it down and let it dry with the drag buttoned up to help prevent water intrusion.

    Spray bottle and towel wipe is definitely better than blasting your little baitcaster with the hose. Sometimes it's just too convenient to use the hose tho.

    I think your Cherry Berry was emitting pheromones and the little Grunion was tagging along trying to get a whiff..
