A Reel Catch! Posted on September 28, 2015January 8, 2024 by Kris Bliznick We just had this Fish Tales pinball machine come through our shop. The previous owner did a lot of work on it, and it looked even better after we finished a few last things. Check it out! Williams came out with Fish Tales in 1992, and produced almost 14,000 units. (IPDB) These games are always fan-favorites, which means they’ve usually suffered quite a bit of wear. This one had new decals installed, and look at that bright color on the cabinet! You rarely ever see an original Fish Tales that bright. Full LEDs had been installed in this game, too, including the awesome flapping fish topper this game is known for. Another shot that shows how colorful this game is with LEDs! The playfield in this game had been clearcoated, too, so it didn’t have the insert wear you normally see in this game. We put the Super Bands on, changed the rubber rings, cleaned everything, and checked all the mechanics. Enjoy the game, Bill!
