I can’t get my open faced fishing reel to cast. What do I do?

I have used an open faced reel countless times. My new one that I bought won’t cast. I have tried everything I can think of. It feels like it locks up. I have even ran the line down the pole several times. It came with the line on the reel. Could the line be on the reel wrong?

Can I fix my fish finder?

I have a Hummingbird Wide One Hundred fish finder mounted to the trolling motor of my boat. It turns on, but doesn’t register any depth or anything when I put the trolling motor in the water. I bought the boat in July and it has never worked. To make things worse, I snapped the wire that goes to the transducer. I just did a simple splice and used liquid electical tape on it (neoprene dip). It still doesn’t work. Any ideas on how to try to fix it?
