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.

      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.
