ICE REEL
« on: Apr 14, 2008, 05:35 PM »
I have a 5' Berkly lightning rod and was wondering if I can use my ice reel on it?  My buddy uses his ice reel, but his reel is a bit bigger then mine. I was given an open water gill reel, but it is in bad condition and dont wanna use it unless i must.

I use a few of my reels for both the ice season and the summer. Especially on my ultralite rods.

I did the sam thing.  I bought a couple of okuma reels and to justify them to the other half I told her that they would be used for ice and open water.  They do work great for both.  Just keep them clean.

Why not?  All of my ultra-lite reels pull double duty.  Just strip the line and replace between seasons.  I can't justify to myself buying 2 reels and having one of them sitting around not pulling its weight for 6 months out of the year.

I have a few different reels that do double duty, but they are made for open water fishing. In between seasons they all get a good cleaning, and when going into the hard water season I switch to Frabill Zero lubricant. They seem to work just fine for all seasons.
