Rattle reel

6 posts in this topic

I made a couple rattle reels that one revolution equals 1' of line. I got bored & had to build some. What fish are these used for? I am wondering what kind & how much line?

What ever fish your going for at night while sleeping, or during the day and not "paying" attention to the other hole, like when your busy watching the TV and the "fishing show" thats goin on below the ice.

Most people use them for Walleye's but have seen people use them for Crappie, northern, ect

A rattle reel is the only alarm clock that will effectively wake me up instantly.
