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.

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
