Old Reel

Recommended Posts

Going through my "stuff" today I remembered I bought a new star drag salmon reel a couple (few) decades ago . I only used it a couple times as I found I liked my  Stradic 4000 as it was more enjoyable to fight the kings . I kept it in a reel box & applied oil to it periodically ( like every 5 years approx ) I can't remember where I bought it or how much I paid for it . So here it sits on the shelf , lonely , and never caught a fish .....   :(

   I don't know much about these reels ....probably old school but it looks like a  solid well made reel in brand new shape .  I suppose it would work for carp fishing , but not for long casts ....most of my casting for carp is under 50' from shore . 

 Someone here who has fished for salmon may know more about this  Daiwa reel and clue me in on it's value .....maybe an "antique" and worth thousands .....   :o

Looks like it needs to catch a fish smerch. 

It's still a virgin Ty......it needs a good rod to match it's heavy weight  ....probably best for salmon or ski .

Lots of guys use that style reel for trolling for pickerel on Lske Erie.

i have 4 trolling rigs w them on.

 

I think the reel would be too heavy for Erie eyes ....a bit of an over kill since eyes don't have the power of salmon ...and it does hold a lot of line !

Great reel for smaller sharks. Used by many salt anglers. 

 You would be in the know Paul ....  it's a heavy reel ....about 10 oz. great for B.C. sturgeon  !

They are reliable and were used by some of the charter captains back in the day on Lake O.

 

The salmon fishing was huge back in the 80's . It was fun listening to all the "handles" out there . My two buddies were " Bushwacker " and "Three Finger  Lewie "  . there was "Sam the Barber"  My cousin Jim's boat was the "Bomber A" ...We had a lot of fun out there .....

That reel is perfect for 5 colors of leadcore line on Erie for walleye or a rigger reel for walleye and salmon. 

 

Thanks for that Dawg .....  who knows ,  I might end up doing an eye fish on Erie .  I forgot , two rods are legal , so I can also use my old Shimano Stradic 4000 . That big reel can grace my 12 ft. carp rod !    B)
