The Schooley's De-Ma-Reel is a great replacement reel for any ice rod using a wide spool horizontal jigging reel. This reel features plastic construction with a bracket for mounting, a drag tension adjustment and a linemarker. The reel spool measures 3 1/4" in diameter and is 9/16" wide.
Please note that these reels come in Green, Red and Yellow Colors. Our color choice only.
Bought these reels to build my own springboard for smelt fishing up in mid-coast Maine tidal waters. Made of nylon plastic construction and virtually indestructible with no line twist. They come in cool colors and best of all they are afforable. FISHUSA has the best price for these reels.
Also started using these reels on my customized panfish jigging rod. It does the job. It even outfish my more expensive set up.
LIKE REELS ON POLES
I have had the opportunity fish tournies through the ice, from NY to MN since 2001 and Schooley's are the best reel when it comes to panfishing. They are the "original straight line" reel, and at less than four bucks a shot, you can get 20 of them for the price of a good spinning reel
Received the reel and the next day was reeling in the perch. lesson learned, do not fill the reel up with mono as the pressure of the line wedged in the spool wiil spread the sidesof the reel and crack the spool where the two sides meet. Use only enough line to get you by, I didn't like the mounting system, no way to mount the reel to a standard rod seat. I used plastic wire ties and electrical tape to secure the reel to the rod. I do like these reels, simple to use, lightweight and no line twist.
Great Reel for Panfish
