Reel Repair

6 posts in this topic

I just drove out to Minnetonka Outdoors to drop off a couple reels I wanted cleaned/repaired. I was surprised to find that they've been out of business since October.

Does anyone know of a good place in the South Metro to bring reels for service?

I asked a couple weeks ago at Cabin Fever in Victoria, but they do not do reel repair. I've heard the bait shop on Hwy 12 in Minnetonka does reel repair, but I've not been there myself.

Check out Wayzata Bait and Tackle. I think Todd is the guy that does reel repair. They are on HYW 12 just west of 494.

I contacted Thorne Bros and they told me they send their reel repair/service to Wayzata Bait on Hwy 12.

I had seen that to lube/oil a reel at Wayzata bait was a minimum of 14.50 for a spin cast up to 20+ I believe for baitcasters.

      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.
