Abu clicker

Recommended Posts

On one of my Abu bait caster 6500 reels the clicker quit working.Is this something that I can fix with having not much knowledge of reel repair or will I need to send it back to abu?Not much good for cat fishing without it.

If you dont have a good knowledge of baitcasters I would highly recommend not taking it apart yourself.

Minnetonka Outdoors will put one in and have the reel ready for pick up in a couple days most of the time. The older 6500 c3 reels had a wimpy clicker in them, the newer ones are better. They usually put the newer ones in when they replace them.

They are in Shoreview(next to excelsior) on Hwy 7.

They're not too complicated and I could point you to a site that would show you step by step how to do it, but I would get banned for life, I fear.

On a related note, is there anyway to put a clicker in a reel that doesn't already have one.....Abu 5500C? I'm guessing with the price of these reels, it would not be worth the time and effort, if it is even possible, but I thought I'd give it a crack.

Yes,it is very easy to take apart and the clicker arm is broke.I called Abu and they said send it in and they would fix it for free,warranty and have it shipped back in 1 week for sure.They were excellent to talk and work with.A+++++

I told them that if they would send me the part that I would install it and they told me that there was also a upgrade they were going to do to it so off it goes.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
