5 posts in this topic

anyone know of some good places to get my reels repaired near Mille lacs? If not near Mille lacs I can send them by ups. I have 5 reels I need fixed. Thanks.

Wayazata Bait and Tackle. Tim is the guy to talk with. The # is (952) 473-2227. I am sure you can UPS them if you do not want to drive. You better get them in though, I dropped of reels 2 weeks ago and said they said they would try and have them done before the opener. Also a lot will depend on what each reel needs. My brother in law dropped his off the same time and his are done while I am still waiting I think they needed to order parts for mine though. Anyway you will be very happy as they do great work. Good Fishing.

Minnetonka Outdoors in the Twin Cities does reel repair as well. I can't remember the guys name off the top of my head, but I think it is Tom. He has been doing this for a long time.

Not really close to Mille Lacs but well worth your time to check them out.

Trails End bass pro shop in Fridley. As long they are name brand reels he (Dick) will fix. He won't do any store brand reels like guide series or reels from bps. Speaking of bps, they also have a reel repair service in Missouri you can send to. You can find their info. in the bps catalog.

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.
