mimic minnow bodies

9 posts in this topic

I bought some 3.5" northland mimic minnow replacement bodies from sportsmans when they went out business. I've had surprising really good luck with these and now I can't find them anywhere. I've checked with GM, Joes, Cabelas, capras, and no one carry these or are discontinuing carrying them. They all have the shorter ones. I thought about ordering from Northland directly but they want to charge $8.95 for shipping for bodies that cost $2.95/pack. Anyone have any ideas who might carry these?

I will have to check this out while in Spicer. Fleet Farm does not have the 3.5" bodies. They have the shorter bodies, just like everyone else.

I thought I saw some at Gander Mountain today. They also had some decent soft body baits in the bargain bin.

They carry the shorter ones like most other stores. I was told they stopped stocking them because they didn't sell too many.

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
