Hello to all. I am Mike and and I am the owner of The Reel People of Lake Ann, Michigan. We are a fishing reel and rod repair shop and custom rod builder located in the number one freshwater fishery in the United States. We are located in Northwestern Lower Michigan 250 miles northwest of Detroit, MI. We repair from any manufacturer and type of fishing reel and rods. Daiwa, Penn, Shimano, Abu Garcia, Zebco/Quantum, Shakespeare/Phluger, Tica, Berkley and Okuma and many more. Restoration of old rods that grandpa passed down. Old Mitchell reels from the 1950's, downrigger reels and rods, bait caster reels.. anything you can think of in the fishing world. We also do custom rods with components from Batson, Seeker and Lamiglas.

I started this blog to share answers with folks about their fishing equipment. How to on taking care of your fishing equipment so it lasts years and performs at it's best when that trophy fish is on your line. And your trophy may be the first catch for a young angler or that elusive monster you've been chasing.. Join our conversation anytime. Get off the couch, turn off the TV, go outside and fish, hike, hunt, camp, canoe, whatever you wished you could have done, start today, plan it and do it...

Not small, Not a giant, Love kids, love the outdoor world......
Introduction
I fish, hunt, shooting sports in archery and firearms, golf, camp, ride motorcycles, ride mountain bikes, swim, boating, Great Lakes trolling for salmon, steelhead and brown trout. Own a reel/rod repair service and build custom rods. I have survived cancer twice and a major back surgery. Life ends when you stop breathing and stop moving. I have a black lab named Bo, he is my best friend and confidant, he'll never share my personal life with anyone, loves me unconditionally. I live in rural America, fly over country, and very happy to leave it that way.
Bragging rights
A bad day fishing is far better then a great day at work. Work is for people who don't fish.
