Great deals!

If you folks are traveling I-90 or anywhere else in southwestern Minnesota, take a side trip to Spirit Lake, Iowa. I was there a couple weeks ago and left some $$ in the outlet store across the street from Pure Fishing.

Pure Fishing is the new corp. name for the conglomerate of Berkley, Fenwick, Mitchell, Coleman, Abu Garcia, etc. They have an outlet shop across from their corp hdqtrs and it is filled with super deals -- many are factory seconds, but like brand new. Some reconditioned stuff, but worth it. I have been there four different times and would not miss it if in the area.

Good heads-up Clayton.
It is a great place to get good quality stuff at really low prices. They have an entire wall of remanufactured rods, most of them sell for $7-$12. I picked up a $150 rod 2 years ago for $11! All that was wrong was the top 3 inches had been broke off but a new tip had been put on.
They also sell Power worms, grubs, creatures and line in bulk and they have tons of remanufactured reels too.
It's a good thing it is quite a drive for me or I'd be BROKE!!!

Among other things, I picked up an Abu 5600C baitcaster for $22. And, they had some of the older Northern Lite ice rods with baitcaster seats for $7. I've looked for these for 2 years.

I like to fish pike thru the ice with short rods and baitcasters rather than the hand-over-hand tip up routine.

If you go to the Berkley web site and look for the FFO Fisherman's Factory Outlet store banner you can see there web site listing the surplus and discontinued stock.

I believe this may have been where you were?

I buy a lot of gear from them and be sure to check on bulk mono line too, man is that ever reasonable!

Like a pound of 10# Berkley XT for $3, is that cheap enough for you? I buy 10 to 15 pounds of line a season from them and it is as good as the Berkley you get in the store if not better.

I would post a link but that wouldn't last too long. "ZAP" "POOF"

Your are quite right Eddy -- That is their HSOforum. I get Whiplash in bulk from them, 'cause it is almost impossible for me to find it locally or elsewhere.

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.   
    • If this is your carb # 6 is the drain screw   http://www.marineengine.com/parts/yamaha-outboard-parts/1997/30/30ELHV/620301630004
    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
