  1. Vex tri beam/ pro ?

    All FLX-28s come with the Pro View. Having used both and liked both, I run Pro Views on my units now. The ability for me to fine tune my cone angle was the major reason for the switch.
  2. New Clam/Jason Mitchell Rods?

    That's the only thing that Gander in St Cloud has! Their fishing department is absolutely horrible and keeps getting worse every year.
  3. leech for opener

    Some have mentioned Al Maas and Jeff Andersen from LOA. Keep in mind that the Leech Lake Walleye Tournament is going on the same weekend as Muskie Opener this year. I know Jeff fishes the LLWT every year and Al has fished it almost every year as well. It may be tough to find someone that weekend as most of the Leech guides throw their hat into the circle for the LLWT.
  4. jigginjim, Everyone came in with full bags I believe (8 sunfish/8 crappies). I am glad this is probably the last time I will ever fish Pelican. There just aren't the quality of fish out there to justify making a trip. If you are looking for action for the kids, then it's tough to beat. I apologize for the results being tough to read.
  5. Clearwater is just a couple weeks away! If anyone needs more information or an entry form, let me know and I can help any way that I can.
  6. ATV Tracks

    Dave, I was offered a promoter/pro staff position with J-Wheelz. I haven't taken the opportunity due to lack of snow, but I am wishing I had them right now. I also would need to rethink my trailer options and that is the only thing holding me back right now! I have a 5x8 trailer. I was thinking about just riding them up on the rails that are about 8" off the trailer deck, but I think I might just be asking for trouble with all of the weight resting on the J-Wheelz. I was also considering just taking them on and off each time, but when I do a lot of lake hopping, this really isn't an option. I could just get a new trailer, but then I'm digging even deeper in the pocketbook. I just wish this was a little bit more simple....
  7. As a reminder, there is still time to sign up for Pelican. If you need an entry form, let me know. It needs to be in by Thursday!!!!
  8. DH Custom Rods 30" Walleye Stinger Ice Rod

    Anyone looking for a DH rod, I have a few for sale!
  9. I thought you had this figured out Clayton?
  10. To the mods: Is there anyway we can leave this on the Annandale forum? While those individuals may not be looking to fish a tournament, they may also not realize that there is one in their area.
  11. Rules are very similar to the NAIFC rules with the exception of the 10 fish of each species per team limit. Each team will then weigh their top 8 sunfish and 8 crappies, but they need to be sorted prior to weigh in. There are also no boundaries. The entire lake is open for the tournament.
  12. For those of you who haven't heard, Team Extreme Ice Fishing Tournaments is coming to Pelican February 17th. I know there have been many local teams that competed in the NAIFC tournaments on Pelican the past couple years. If you haven't had a chance to check out Team Extreme, I suggest you do. Tournament is 100% payback. ($3000 1st place if field of 75 is full) Limited to 75 teams. Entry Fee is $100/2 man team. One man teams allowed and will follow same rules and entry fees. Each team weighs 8 sunfish/8 crappies (Allowed to keep 10 of each/team) If you would like an entry form or complete list of rules, send me an email Rhino0018 at I will also answer any questions you may have to the best of my ability. Get registered today before it is too late!
  13. New to coyote hunting

    My best advice is to not even get started....... It's way too addicting!!!!
  14. The Minnewaska event is just around the corner. It is not too late to get your registration in. Give Gary a call or send me a PM and I will get a registration form out to you!
