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.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
