Fisherman's Factory Outlet Spirit Lake
« on: Jan 19, 2021, 11:25 PM »
The place has kinda turned into a joke over the years IMO and the great deals they are pretty a myth anymore.

However, the Shakspeare Reels they have for $5 a piece with stren line on them are hard to beat. I picked up 5 for $26 today....got home and oiled them with Lucas reel oil......smooth has a babies bottom. Heck the spool of 4# Stren on them is dang near worth the $5.

I picked up a few last year, I've been very happy and impressed for the money. The 2 bearing reel is smooth for the most part, the spool is aluminum, and the drags are smooth.....just might need a touch of oil on it.

So just a heads up to anyone going to fish at the IGL and wants some solid ice feels for cheap.

What is really crazy....the Stren Line on the reels is actually pretty good line. I tried using it ice fishing and it worked really well. So for $5 u get about $2.99 worth of fishing line & a reel worth $19-$25. Not bad.
