Reel Repair

4 posts in this topic

Can anyone recommend a place in Southern Minnesota that could possibly repair an older bait casting reel from the 60s. I inherited it from my grandfather when he died about 12 years ago. I would like to get it working again so I could some day pass it down in my family.

Any help is greatly appreciated...

There is a guy in Byron that was fixing them up a year ago. Not sure if he still is. Call Wild Goose sports in Roch. That used to be the drop off spot for him, so they will know if he is still doing it. He was reasonably priced and did a good job for me.

I had a reel problem once and dropped it off at Hooked on Fishing and they fixed it for me that was probably three years ago.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.

      I just signed the petition "Robbinsdale Armstrong High School Athletic Director: Allow Trap/Skeet Participants to Earn a Chenille Letter." and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name.

      Our goal is to reach 500 signatures and we need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here:

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.
