Hatch 5 Plus reel issue

Recommended Posts

Good day,

I’ve recently had an issue with my lightly used Hatch 5 plus reel, just checking to see if anyone here has had similar issues. While reeling in a fish the tension on the reel increases to the point that it gets difficult to turn the handle. (the only way to relieve the pressure is to decrease the drag on the reel which you can imagine is less than ideal) Also, while the fish is taking line the drag tightens up on it’s own and I have to back it off manually to let the fish run. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Tight lines!
