Got myself a new reel for trolling and decided to get some lead core and spool it on my old reel.

I went to the store today and got some more lead core to replace the first batch.

Does anyone have any suggestions on getting it on the reel? I got the first spool on, but it was so loose that it wasn't worth the trouble (I saw nothing but a rat's nest involved). Do I need someone to hold the spool tight while I reel it in? Do I put it on and then wait until I can get it behind the boat and put a heavy weight on it and that will tighten it up? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
