ooh Steve amigo, I know Im alredy in the danger zone

its easy just to take the wallet and buy a new shiny reel, but is more satistactory to find this old gems, restore them and fish them.

I found this on a local Craigslist. I would categorize it as ď other old reel ď not a clue as to name or age but itís an odd one...
Looks like it retrieves from the underside of the reel. A lefty to boot ...

Wow. The frame, stand & crank look homemade. Maybe the spool & gears, etc. came from a complete reel and the guy modified it, but why? It looks like a pretty big spool.
Do you have it Cool'?

I didnít buy the setup so Iím just looking at the pic like yíall... the upper part looks manufactured (maybe cast) but the thin base that fastens the reel to the rod looks fabricated. Along with that bent wire that looks like it might some how manage the line. It also appears to be direct drive with no drag.  Itís about 40 miles away from me so not close enough for me to just go take a look. I mean itís not like a 14/0 for $150 ... I would and did travel for that one.

Cool

Looking at the handle, gearing, and line lay, it looks like a right handed, "underslung" reel.

I thought the same thing... it appears to be direct drive so using it underslung I think you would have to turn the handle counterclockwise. I might be wrong. strange bird !
Hmmm, the more I look at it ... it might be an underslung setup.

I've seen a couple of these listed in this post. Thought I'd show mine. I do not know a lot
about the Ocean City line but the reel just seems like quality build in my hands. I would
appreciate if someone could give me a time frame for the build on this reel. I do know that
this reel could be put right back to work today. Everything works . Clean up , grease, and lube
was enjoyable. I did not take it to "show ready" but is easy on the eyes. Might just have to
seek out some of the earlier Ocean City's.

late edit... re-read the entire posting... it appears some iteration of the 112 was available as
early as 1935. For much of its' production it appears to have included "Bay City" on the tag/box.
My reel is of more recent production. Value range in the "$25" on a good day for reels like
mine... mint (boxed) warrant $50-$75. A well made reel, not necessarily drawing much collector
interest... decent quality. Thanks to all that shared the knowledge.

The earliest catalog offering of the Bay City is in the 1931 Ocean City catalog. I have brochures from earlier dates but they do not show a Model 112, Bay City reel. Here it is in the 1931 catalog.

Your reel is a right before the war edition. Here it is in the 1942 catalog.

Penn Chronology...

Wow ! Thank you very much. I enjoy the history almost as much as I enjoy the reel ! I hope
it is ok that I saved your photos to my archive... I will keep them personal. Really appreciate
your sharing the background. Thanks again. (I led  sheltered childhood... only Penn's in our stable
growing up (Sea of Cortez).... maybe the Ocean City line was more of an East Coast market) ?

Great site, great info.
