After use, I wanna make sure the salt is off the reel. Afterwards I'll spray the reel with WD 40 and wipe it down. I also oil the worm and make sure it free and clear of dirt. I usually won't break it down unless it needs to be.

Very little daily maintenance involved.

 

Do as above.

 

Before rinsing my reels with fresh water, be sure to tighten the drag so water does not get inside. I will usually grease the worm gear and oil the bearing after extended uses.

Experiment with different oils to find what you like.  I like Inox or Reel-X.  Check alan tani's site and follow a maintenance tutorial.  Grease the inside of the sideplates, brakeplate, screw studs.  A true Abu expert named Gowge, God rest his soul, taught me the value of car waxing the frame.
