Summer is at its peak and so are we with our work load at Kels. Right now for reel repair we are about 2 weeks out, not including parts if they have to be ordered and shipped in. For trolling motors we are at least a week an a half to diagnose the issue and order parts afterwards. Keep in mind we have one worker for all the motors we get in and we have 50+ right now. We also had ICAST this past week, and are a few days behind because of that convention. We ask for your patience and understanding at this time. Thank you.
Kels is proud to announce that as of 7/1/18 we are now an authorized Daiwa reel warranty center.
We are very excited to share the news and look forward to servicing your reels in the years to come.
For some of you, specifically those that live in a place that's not feasible to make the drive to Kel's, we have the solution. Here at Kel's we accept reels that are mailed to us and we can ship them back after servicing for the shipping fee price based on weight. For those interested in mailing in their reels, all we ask is that you provide us with the following information, preferably written on a piece of paper and stuck in the box you mail the reel with:
-Your full name
-Best phone number to reach you at
- What issue you are experiencing with the reel
-If you want us to just fix the issue at hand, or if you want us to clean the whole reel and fix any issue we find on top of the ones you noticed.
When we receive your reel we will call you at the number you provide to us, to ensure you we got the reel and tell you the estimated time frame we will get the reel done and shipped back to you. We can ship USPS, FedEx, and UPS if need be. We also can mail out parts by themselves if you would like to do the repair yourself and you just need the parts from us. Call in if you have any other questions about our mailing system!
Due to the weather, tomorrow we may not have our parking lot sale. In the case that it rains we will not be having the sale tomorrow. Sorry for the inconvenience. Stay updated with us on facebook because that's where we will be posting our updated information regarding the sale and the weather conditions. Thank you for understanding.

With the start of 2017, Kel’s Rod and Reel has added new items to consider when you come in for your annual clean and lube. These items all debuted at ICAST and are now on feature in the store. For sunglasses, Cocoons and Maxx HD have been favorites. Cocoons are perfect for the angler that has prescription glasses because they fit directly over and fit snugly against the face. Our shop favorite is the cut ring, available in black or pink. They are an easy way to cut line and tie jigs without taking out scissors or a knife. The line cutters help you rejig quickly and get your line back in the water.
As always, we allow customers to sell their fishing reels, rods, and trolling motors on commission. There is often a collection of fishing tackle that was never picked up and customers’ own items for sale. If you are looking for used reels, rods, or trolling motors, come check out the front of the shop. Often you can find a well-made reel or rod for sale. Our technicians are well-versed in most repairs of rods, reels, and trolling motors; therefore, we can assist you with any questions or concerns with purchasing any used item.
