  1. Anyone ever deal with braid line smelling like ****? I have a TranX spooled with 50lb Power Pro. I use the reel on jetties, so I need thicker braid to handle some abrasion and there are some big fish where I go, so I need heavy line. Anyway, I always rinse my reels with freshwater after coming back from salt/brackish water trips. Few trips ago, I started to smell something pungent and realized that it was coming from the braid line. I rinsed my reel/line for a minute after my last trip to see if that would help... But It still stank today and I was taking my line off because I saw it as a sign of braid line going bad. Then my wife suddenly says "Is that you?" then closes her nose and says it smells like a wet rag... Lol. She walked out of the room. So I know it wasn't just me smelling it. I have braid on most of my reels and I treat them the same... But I don't remember ever having to change my line because of the smell LOL. I did fish stinky brackish water last season (Green algae maybe?)... Not sure where I picked it up and wondering if anyone else had a similar problem.
