New St. Croix Ice Rod Blanks?

8 posts in this topic

What's your opinion on the new St. Croix ice rod blanks. Anybody know what St. Croix is selling the finished rods for?
Thanks in advance,
Brad

I bought the medium St Croix Rod at Gander Mountain for $28. I use it for walleyes while jigging and am very impressed with the rod so far. Very sensitive and can feel if the half minnow is fouled or fell off the hook.

I don't believe Gander Sells the Blanks. It is a fully assembled Ice Rod (No Reel). Find out what Gander he got one for $28. I haven't seen them under $39.99. Gander is carrying 5 different weights and lenghts, from 24" to 32" and Medium to Ultra Lite.

It was the Gander in St. Cloud and it was a 28# M. I bought it in early November so the price could have changed since then.

I picked up the 24" UL and the 28" M at Gander for $29.99 each. I love both rods, super sensitive, especially with 4lb fireline. If you see the rods for more than $29.99, make them call any of the stores in the west metro area. I've been to all three, and they all have the rods for $30.00.

    • Branson is sort of in a transition, since they weren't going to survive catering to a population that's mostly dead now.   I've heard it's getting more interesting for people under the age of 75.     I grew up about 45 minutes from there.   We used to cruise through there on Friday nights and chat up bored out of their mind girls on vacation with grandma and grandpa.     The surrounding area is beautiful, once you get off the highway and away from the billion billboards.

    • Does anyone have any good ideas, memories, experiences with any hunting trips that they would like to share?  My dad is turning 60 in a year and a half and I would really like to plan a once in a life trip that I can buy him.  That being said, I can not spend 20 grand on a 2 man moose hunt in Alaska and that is being generous on the cost of that one, more like 30 plus.   Looking for a moose, caribou like trip.  He has shot a big muley in the past and an elk, so that may not be top on his list anymore.   Just looking for ideas.  Thanks much.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks.
