What is Bait Finesse System (BFS) Fishing? (including video below) Bait Finesse System fishing is using baitcasting reels with special shallow, drilled out/ultralight, spools and light-action rods to throw lures weighing less than approximately 5-7g (3/16 oz to ¼ oz and below).
What makes a BFS reel?
Bait finesse reel The biggest feature is a lightweight and small diameter shallow spool. Compared with ordinary reels, spools are loaded that are light, small in spool diameter, and small in volume. A light small spool starts rotating with a slight load of a lightweight lure.
What is a BFS spool?
Bfs spool can be applied to almost all kinds of fishing methods, such as spinning reels. The spindle reel is suitable for most baitcasting fishing reels, and it can also be easily adjusted by turning the knob. In the meantime, spool can also be used for casting and spinning actions in water.

Can you use worms with a baitcaster?
