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.

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
