Spare spool for Abu Garcia 6500

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where I can find a spare spool for an Abu Garcia reel? I already have this as a backup muskie reel, and wanted to use it for leadcoring walleyes as well. I checked the ovbious ones like ebay and Abu's website with no help. Thanks in advance for any help.

usually the bargain cave at Cabela's is the place to look for something like that.

if it is anything like the 5500 there are just three screws that unscrew and the spool comes out with the side of the reel.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
