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.

    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there. 
    • Mostly commenting this "sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests" but I do love it when people assume I am somehow D or R because I make a comment against their beloved party.
       
    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.  
    • This summer?   Seems like a long time.  Are you sure this guy knew what he was doing?     Freezing may or may not kill the parasite.     From CDC.  Freezing wild game meats, unlike freezing pork products, may not effectively kill all worms because some worm species that infect wild game animals are freeze-resistant.
