Fun project...



Last spring a buddy and I were crappie fishinh on a local lake and he was pulling up the anchor and somehow kicked his crappie rod over the side... we tried daredevils etc to fish it out to no avail... fast forward to last Sunday when my 7 yr old son snagged his beetle spin on something and drug up, you guessed it the rod/reel. Now I would love to hand him his rig back at opener this year, but obviously it is in tough shape... the rod is not too bad as it was graphite deal and cleaned up ok... but the reel... Any ideas to try and save it or should I just skip it. It was in a mucky bottom and has dirt all inside. I was thinking to wash it out as best I could and soak it in reel oil? ideas? has anyone else reclaimed a reel from the deep?

I was thinking of using it when we go out fishing... catching a fish on it would double the burn at least, dont ya think?

That would be funny grin. You could spend a few bucks and mail it to him, with a return adderess of Mr Pike's weedbed or something like that.
