IT’S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR FISHING ENTHUSIAST……
It’s the Change of Season when some of you will be putting up your Fishing Gear for the Winter. Here at Maumee Tackle Fishing Outfitters we have an extremely experienced Real Repair Specialist. John & his wife Lori would like to Thank You to everyone who has assisted this year with their Reel issues. But the Reel Doctor has some tips.
Preventative Storage Medicine For your Reel
1) Always loosen the Drag before storage. This will prevent your felt drag washers from getting compressed.
2). Check all your screws, loosen screws cause breakdowns.
3). Use Reel Oil only on bearings & drag washers NOT Grease!
4). Finally wipe down your Reel with light Reel Oil on a cloth. Do not use WD.40, the petroleum base will eventually cause paint damage.
Follow these simple Reel Doctor’s Orders & your Reels will be very dependable for years to come.
It’s a great time to have your older reels factory cleaned & restored.
Before the Walleye Run in March………Stop In and drop off the Reels and we should have them back to you within 10 days.
