stripped gears?


mudman

Question

I was casting this weekend with my Team Daiwa baitcaster and have a tendency to turn and start reeling before it hits the water. on one cast I got this hellasish (sp) noise of grinding and clicking when I turned it over. for the rest of the day when I started to reel it would make clicking sounds like it was shifting gears?

Any iders or is it time for the graveyard?

I think I will take it to a repair shop, anyone know any good ones in the south metro?

Take of the side plate, opposite the reel handle and see if the gears are stripped, i believe the gear is called a Cog Wheel, i did the exact thing with my Abu, i sent in for a new part to a website, and it cost me 3 bucks, reel is good as new.

great!!

thanks I have no clue when it come to taking a baitcaster apart. the reel was $150 in 98 so that would be great if it lasted a couple more years.

If you have your manual, I'd have it handy. Baitcasters can be complex to reassemble if you don't have the blown-apart diagram.

Yes good point, when you take it apart, do it very orderly and lay everything out in a line in the order you took it off so you know where to put it back in, also don't go messing with things that arent broken except to clean them.

Take it to Minnetonka outdoors.. they have the parts on hand.. your reel will be like new when you get it back... much cheaper than a new reel.

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      I'm willing to buy this white shirt. It will look awesome with the juicewrld pants.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
