Help! Shimano Conquest backlash

by Tim

So I finally popped for a Shimano Conquest BFS reel and my lack of bait caster experience is really showing. I’m getting bird’s nests about every three casts. Can someone walk me through how you have the reel’s tension, magnets, and drag set up? Also any advice regarding casting technique would be greatly appreciated!
