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.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
