Do you mean tangled or twisted? Could be you need to have some swivels on your connections or else the set up hasn't been rigged right.

If you're using just one lure (delta eel) on the end of the line it shouldnt tangle for you, but it will twist the line which might then tangle if there's no swivel.

falcon is a very soft line my friend..... it will get burnt easily if it twists....

eliminate coated fluorocarbon and switch t pure fluorocarbon if you want that invisibility,
but i would rather use a maxima line of thinner diameter

ahh.. remember to straighten(stira x xlief) the line, else you wont reduce entanglement.... this often happens on retrieve as the rotary of the motor generates a  rotating current that eventually spins the fergha(trace) because of a low weight. a slip shot at the fergha can help to reduce it and as skip said, a proper rotatin swivel and 2 beads and 2 stoppers will further reduce it

Good season so far.....

i tie directly to rixa , i think rotating swivel might solve the problem, ill give it a try .
so maxima line is of better quality, im just new to fishing and need big advice,
caught 6 tunagg yesterday 3miles off gnejna with lampuki lures , got tangled a couple of 100 times though.
when u ritrieve the lure do u switch off motor cause i lost 2 with motor going, and do u put line on top of itself or tie it to the sufra cause it takes ages, if no is there a particular pattern of retrieval to aviod entaglement

Usually we dont switch the motor off.When we retreive the line we just leave it on deck.Try and dont leave the fish fall on the line cause you will create a disaster.Another simple thing is to use the fishing rod.With it you will never get tangled hopefully Wink

also for this type of fishing iy is much more fun on handline since you can better feel the pull of the fish ....also i tink if u wer to meet a school of fish it is much faster to retrieve and deploy the rixa by hand x) Lapsiboy

after the first 2 weeks of lampuki season the size of the line doesnt make any difference. yesterday i had one rixa with the last 10mtrs with .40 line and the other the last 10 mtrs with .50 line. i caught more with the .50 line than i caught a lampuka and fell on the line in the boat and got the rixa tangled. i used another one that had the last 10 mtrs .70 and still caught more than the .40 rixa. if they want to bite they bite everything

Buzi starting from last week I'm using rods and I solved the problems on tangle when you get the fish into the boat. I was one of those you likes trolling on the hand lines but i have to admit that it's a great fun on the rod and it's faster to retreave a fish without losing it.

It depends on what rod you are using. Last time out with camkev for lampuki we had two rods with us, a light tackle trolling rod and a thin rod which i use for kahli. On the trolling rod you dont really feel the fun whilst on the thin rod it took me double the time to bring in a fish.

I'm using jigging rods 150-300grms and a normal spinning reel and i can assure you that there's all the fun you want and I retreve fast with out any tangle when i get the fish in the both. Last wednesday I had 2 x 3lampuki on the rod i was back trolling within 2mins.
