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.

    • Fletcher must really like these guys that are small and quick.  I don't understand why they are trying so hard to keep the team intact.  They haven't made it past the 2nd round for the 5-6 years.  We've had this discussion before, but at what point do you say this just isn't working as is?   They have to move good players to get good players.  
    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy
