To Scoot about rods.

10 posts in this topic

Does your dad have a email address? I might be looking into getting a custom jigging rod in the near future.

I was just there over the weekend and man does he have a couple of jiggin' sticks set up! He has a couple of buddies who want jiggin' sticks and he kicked out a couple of bueties! He's also got some cool/unusual rods made right now too- one with an elk horn handle, one with a pool cue handle, and a couple more that are pretty creative too- very cool products that are still very functional (I'd give my left "you know what" for the pool cue rod).
He just got a new e-mail address and I don't have it yet. His old address is below (he checks it fairly often still) or you could just give him a call- I know I have his phone number right!

or by phone: (218) 891-4415

If you decide to get one from him I'd appreciate you telling people how he was to work with and what kind of product he provided for you (I'm confident you'll be more than satisfied with both).

Scoot,
If you get a chance, I would love to see a picture of the pool cue rod. When I am not fishing I am playing pool. It sounds cool!

Tully,

I'll see what I can do to get a picture of it for you. It's a sweet rod- very cool looking and on a nice G-Loomis blank.

I have about 7 or 8 fishing rods made by him. I love everyone of them. He has made me a muskie/catfish rod, a casting rod, and several spinning rods from 6-7 feet. I love them all! He does a great job and has always backed his product. Every time I talk to him, he's got some kind of neat rod as a project. He just made a dandy for me with a cherry or walnut handle and an actual wild turkey feather inlayed in the handle. What a beauty. He uses only good products and has tested many of his rods himself to perfect his craft. He is excellent at customizing for what you want.

Tully,

What's your e-mail address? Dad is going to take pictures today and get them to me as soon as he gets a chance.

Holy dump! You can teach an old dog new tricks!!!
Howdy Dad. I'm surprised you found this post given the crappy directions that I gave you. See... Mr. Piscato (MJCatfish) isn't all bad, at least he has good taste in fishing rods! I can't wait for the first weekend in April for all of us to get together and try some of them out.

    • Never underestimate what a pussycat in her prime can bring down.      
    • 1.23.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye!   On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too!   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head.   This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report.   We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
    • I think the good news is we haven't look great lately but are still putting up wins, nothing wrong with that. Preds have been playing well lately and we were back to back so not going to get too concerned over that loss. Heck Kuemper even looked decent last night. CM Haula and Pommers have looked a little better lately. I am starting to hope Parise is still injured or something, he kind of looks like he is doing everything as usual but just can't get anything going. If this is him aging we are in trouble, lots of years left on that contract. Maybe just a bad season or fighting the puck I just don't know but something is off with him. The good news is we don't need a lot of out of him right now, just a little bit of elevated play and every now and then contributing on the score sheet. Granlund and Zucker have been just crazy good, even without Koivu last night they were our best line, always dangerous.
    • Over last week I left my generator in my fishouse and didn't shut off the propane.  My CO detector alarmed.   When I opened the door to clear it out I could smell a difference.  It didn't smell like either gas or propane - just different.   It only took a few minutes to clear the alarm but I'm not leaving the generator in there anymore and making sure I turn off the propane.  I usually do that but didn't get it done this last time.  The furnace was shut off like usual though.
    • I am looking at the HT Ice Blue and HT Ice Blue Pro rods.  Is there really a difference?  Which one is the better buy?
    • I've owned both the Nils 6 inch Trekker and the Kdrill 6 inch.   In my "opinion", I like the Nils over the Kdrill.   Nils has less torque when drilling, you get more holes per battery, it is faster then Kdrill,  the NIl's material is better to handle thick ice,  you could use it as a hand drill if you run out of battery, and if you get the Trekker model you can make it different lengths.   Kdrill's advantage is it is lighter and you can reopen holes since it is a chipper style blade. I don't open old holes so I sold my Kdrill. 
    • It's already happened....  
    • So what is the Leech Lake Blood Bath Days???
    • Thanks guys for the quick ID response !  It's still hanging around this morning! Maybe another result of climate change?
    • Interesting. Have never seen one around our place in the winter,  although it is surprising sometimes how many birds seem to stay very late into the winter.
