...I hear a Splash... and yes itís my above mentioned 80# rig deep sixed...  now itís frenzy X2. Luckily the big tangle was still there and they were able to fish the $1000 plus outfit out of the abyss...

The reel has been broken down and rebuilt by now, yes?

Hmm... I didnít think of that. I thoroughly rinsed it with fresh water and dried it. Yíall think I should completely take it apart for a clean and lube ? Iím not up to the task with this reel and would need to send it out or take it to the Boss for the clean and lube...
Thanks...

Yes, or you will find that $600 reel to be a $60 reel Smiley

Any incident with full SW submersion requires full overhaul. IMHO, the first step on the boat would have been removing the reel from the rod and dropping it into a bucket of FW. Empty the first soak and follow up with a second FW soak. Two rounds, IMHO, would be sufficient to dilute most of the SW inside the reel and then continue fishing for the rest of the trip.

Back onshore, a full rebuild ASAP...unless, of course, you had a need for $600 door stop.

Brett...
The fishing was somewhat tough, luckily the killer tacos I ate from The Royal Rooster were already digested by the time I made my donation to the Sea... Tough fishing is ok, it makes it that much better when the stars align and that fish comes over the rail. I have always been a patient and optimistic guy... my time will come, and Iíll eat the still beating heart of my first Tuna. Unless itís a Skipjack...

I messaged the Boss about my Davie Jones Locker Avet... he was gracious enough to let me bring it by today for a checkup / service.  Cleaned and lubed with only one sad bearing that he replaced. Repacked the braid and added new top shot... he also cleaned, lubed and replaced the original drag disks in my TLD5 and TLD10 reels and loaded them both with fresh mono.
The man is Aces ! But we all knew that...
