All of my reels I have are 6.3:1 or very close in gear ratio and I believe that I may be retrieving my crank baits too quickly. Having a lot of fish short strike my lures. I find it difficult to slow down my hand as it is just the speed that feels "natural" to retrieve at. So I think I would rather change reel ratios on my cranking rod than try and think every time about slowing down the retrieve and my hand. What ratio do you all prefer on a cranking reel?
