Abu clicker

11 posts in this topic

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.

      Headed up this weekend.  Just curious if the bait of choice is still rainbows/chubs?  Still getting fish in the 18-30 FOW range?  Thanks.

      I spend a lot of time in the early summer after bass. Always have used a fluorocarbon leader and for me the best color has been white. I use a grub or a variety of tubes. Rock piles or points/saddles off islands etc. Sometimes narrow channels also. As far as traffic, we are spoiled! Compared to other lakes there is very little traffic on Vermilion. If you go to the river there is no HP limit. Good luck.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282
