looking for background on some eqiuipment-

3 posts in this topic

I just purchased a small lot of used fishing gear, and was able to identify _almost_ everything... 2 items I'm still curious about, and was thinking maybe someone on here could shed some light on it.

item one is an aluminum tackle box, split top design, with 2 sets of trays on it that telescope out either side. the aluminim has a matte texture, almost like a very small version of the "pillowcase" textures on the side of the roach coach lunch wagons. it also has a small plate on one of the lids that reads "1000A".

The other item is an old levelwind reel, brushed aluminum construction, red on both sides, with the only markings being a small plate that reads "Olympic Triton 727". it has a clicker that is active cranking forward and reverse, an unlabeled thumbscrew to set drag, and no apparent casting release button.

Sorry I don't have any photos, but I would be greatly appreciative of any background you folks could give me on these two items.

thanks!

Grant

I've seen both on ebay. Do an internet search and you should find out plenty. The tackle box is likely an UMCO Aluminum Model 1000A.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
