Your boat bounces on the rough water as you struggle to keep your footing, all the while keeping tension on the line. You're fishing off Cutty Hunk during the annual striped bass migration and you have hooked a big one. When you set the hook, the striper slowly but powerfully moved further away from the boat. You won't call it a spectacular fight but your arms are beginning to tire.
You repeatedly pump and reel to move the big striper off the bottom and closer to the boat, all the time straining the rod, reel and line. You get a glimpse of silver just below the surface and you know the fight is almost over.
Then disaster strikes. The drag that has worked well all season doesn't slip at the right moment, the line breaks and the big striper becomes the one that got away. You shake your head . Looking at the water where the big striper should be , your favorite reel just failed.
If you are an avid angler, you probably own several reels. One of these reels, however is your favorite. The biggest fish you ever caught was brought along side the boat while using this gem. You've caught most of your fish using this favorite toy. When the action is about to happen, this is the rig you immediately grab.
Because it's your favorite reel, it sees plenty of use and more internal wear and tear. Sooner or later your favorite reel will need to be serviced to restore it to like new condition. This is when the service technicians at Bucko's Parts and Service will be there to assist you. Here's a look at the people who will be servicing your reel.
