Spinning reel under $40.

Recommended Posts

herefish101

I am getting married and would like to buy my groomsmen and ushers a fishing reel, my broblem is I need to buy eight reels and my budget for the grooms gifts is three hundred bucks, it works out to be $37.50 a piece.

The best deal I found yet was on some Shimano sienna's on that big auction site, I got three of them for seventy five bucks with shipping included, my problem....... I need five more, I'm really trying to come in under budget.

Or if anyone knows of any other "good" "cheap" reels i'm open to options. I need to buy these in the next two weeks so I have enough time to get them lasered.

If anyone spots a deal, or already knows of one, or even if there is some where where you might get a bulk discount, It would really help as i'v scoured the web for two days now and i'v only come up with three reels. Thanks for any info or help.

I think the Gander Guide Series reels are a great value. Might want to look at those too.

Jackpot! Thanks fish slayer24, the Okuma Avenger at the big C is perfect, I thought I checked everywhere but I must have skipped the big C when I searched around for a good price on the Avengers.

I knew reaching out to my fellow fisherman would pay off.

Thanks to all that posted.

May also want to check the Shakespeare Contender 30. Was Outdoor Life's great bargain award winner this year in their spinning reel test. Easy to find under $30.

Cool idea! But, I'd bet they might get more out of a 35-40 head lamp that a reel. Just my opinion, but a $40 reel, although decent, isn't gonna be as functional in 3-4 years as a decent head lamp. Not trying to sway you away from the reels......but if it were me, I'd rather get a $40 head lamp (come to think of it I could use another one) than a $40 reel. Good luck either way.

Great idea Goose, but it's to late, I already bought the reels. Plus, I'm having my work laser engrave the spools with a personal message on each one, that could be tough to find the area to do that on a headlamp.

Great idea though.

Shakespeare? Their fishing equipment is garbage, IMO. Right up there w/ Southbend, which also makes dump gear. I totally avoid anything w/either of those names on it. Just my experience...

8-Ball - I don't own one so I can't vouch, but here is the review if you want to check it out: [Note from admin: Your post has been edited. Please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you.]

Also, the company that owns Shakespeare owns industry notables such as Abu Garcia, Fenwick, Penn, Mitchell, and Pflueger in addition to a few others. As they used to say on SNL - "It's got Sony guts!"

There ad last week had it listed for that price. I assume that sale ended this past Sunday. Great deal and a nice reel that normally goes for $60.

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
