A: 
You absolutely can. The reel is open enough to make this rather easy, but be advised that one should be wary of extended use of this technique as it may leave you with a nasty friction burn on your thumb depending on line type. My first day out I used exactly this technique to land a 34 pound catfish. Was easy as pie

A: 
This I would not say is a good starter if your just starting out with fishing altogether but it is a start if you are not new to fishing altogether if you have some experience with and opened faced reel and a closed faced reel as this type of reel incorporates both of those types of reels. :)
I hope this is helpful to you

A: 
I would say no unless the fish are minnows size. I just have used three of them fishing for catfish. The biggest fish of the day was a 5lbs. fish and the reel would slip. I had to use my thumb to control the spool. I could not get the drag set tight enough to stop line being pulled of the reel. I would do what I plan on doing and spend the extra money for a better grade reel.

A: 
It has a centrifugal brake. I do not cast with this reel since I am using lead core line to troll deep, so I can't tell you much about how well the braking works.

it's good for small fish under 5lbs.any bigger and the clutch drag seams to slip.I use it for summer flounder and it works ok.Not as good as my old penn 940's but for the price you can't go wrong.Just don't try lifting any tree stumps with it.

The reel is not rated for 30 pound mono test. If the line is braided it would be ok, otherwise not.

no way 20lb tops.Please tell me why 50lb test are you tuna fishing with a lil reel like this?If you are casting for large muskie or pike with this reel and put 50lb braid on it your're still overpowering the reel.then try a better reel like a diawa or penn or schimano.

A: 
50 lb braid would work good . I have 80 lb on mine ! The reason is one I have a big spool of it . Two the line dose't bite in to the spool when you get a canary ! I put 30 lb braid on a reel a few years ago. It bit in to the spool so bad that at the end of the day I had cut most of the line out of the reel !

This reel is listed to work best with 12 or 16 lb test line with 200 yards.

We do not have a listing for 20 lbs test line, but it will not hold 200 maybe 165 or so.

I wouldn't recommend this reel for catfish. I was reeling in a 5lb drum and this reel wasn't that reliable. I would hate to reel in a big one with this reel. If you want a cheap reliable reel for catfish. Check out my reveiw on Bass Pro Shop Snagging Special Reel.

It casts basically the same as any other bait-caster but the round bait-casters seem to work better with bigger baits and require a bit more practice.

A: 
You 'll need to develop an educated thumb. thats what my dad told me ! Go to a pond, field any wide open area . Use a 2oz bank sinker . hold the spool with your thumb , push the button while holding the rod a 2 o'clock let up pressure if the sinker starts to drop fast . Tighten the tention knob so that the sinker just drops slowly. Do this when ever you change luers , it helps keep the backlash's at bay. Now when you cast push the button let out a foot of line from the tip of the rod, hold the spool with your thumb , bring the rod tip back over your shoulder . Swing the rod forward at about the 12-1 o'clock let up pressure on the spool .( Here's where the educated thumb part comes in) Watch the sinker as it starts to slow down start to put pressure on the spool to slow it down, then stop it when it hits the water after awhile you'll get the hang of it . Soon you'll be able to drop a plug in a bucket at any distance !

A: 
Casting with this reel is very easy, however if you are not used to level wind style reels they are a pain. Best go practice at a park with a weight only. The key I have found is too toss the instead of really trying to fling it. As you cast keep an eye on your weight or lure and just before it hits the water put your thumb on the spool and stop it then release it again to let your bait or lure settle into position straight down from where it entered depending on movement of water. But practice a lot with it and you will be fine.
