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.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
