lost reel-
« on: Sun 20 Oct 13:16 2019 »
Hey guys, really hoping someone can help me out here- lost my all time favourite reel over the side of the boat this morning and I am devastated. I was hoping that someone out there might have a Shimano Bantam 50 that they would consider selling to me.
much appreciated
steve

mate, go back to that spot with a fishing magnet and find the reel and pull it back up.  Easy (in theory)

I haven't tried a fishing magnet, but a couple of times when I've lost unsecured rods over the side to sudden runs by decent fish, I've gone back to the same spot the next day armed with snorkeling gear and managed to recover the rod in pretty quick time - to my great surprise! As long as the water isn't too deep, it might be worth a try.
Cheers Freeeedom

cheers guys, lost it in about 15 mtrs of pretty well human unfriendly water. The fish that took it was (in my opinion) a monster. It was all over in 1 second- wouldn't be surprised if my rig is somewhere around Mud island now- Steve

Mate, you lost the reel but still have the rod, having a cord on the reel saved my gear recently when a sudden bite snapped the rod holder and the lot went overboard.
I hope you have luck in finding it.

hey Poppa, unfortunatley the reel was attached to one of the last good ugly stiks that were made in america. Managed to purchase an identical reel from the USA (used), so a new rod to suit it is forthcoming !!
