Info on FFO in Spirit Lake IA ?

5 posts in this topic

Can anyone give me some more info on FFO in Spirit Lake? Are the factory refurbished rods available year round or just seasonal? Also do they have any of the old Berkley Power baits? Don't like the new ones. I'm running out of the 4" black power grubs. Thanks for any info.

I was last there in November. They had rods all over the back of the store -- new and refurbished.

I didn't search for it, but Berkley has a HSOforum that links to the outlet store. It might be your best bet on getting info.

Power baits are everywhere in the store -- mostly the new ones.

Their HSOforum is at:

It seems like somebody posted a toll free no. for the store recently on a thread somewhere in fishingminnesota, but don't have that available right now.

They typically have more variety, product and run more and better specials at the store itself. For instance, it looks like they've currently running a special on the Cardinal Agenda online for $19.95 and last summer they sold them in the store for $10.00. I don't know how much reconditioned stuff they sell online either.

They have tons of Powerbait at the store for very good prices.

Bottom line - the online store is decent but if you can make to the store you'll like that better in terms of price, availability and variety.

I've been there every summer for the last 10 years and have never been disappointed.

uffdapete --

Having been there every summer for the past 10 years, I'm willing to bet you've spent a bundle -- even at reduced, bargain prices.

You've got to be a well equipped angler.

I was there on march 29, lots and lots of stuff. mostly new power baits though. I wish there were some way to get the old power worms in the plastic container though. The line strippers and hook sharpeners were 1.50$ each. lots of good deals!

    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
    • Feiders sittin just outside the top 12. Really cool to see him doing well this year. Didnt sound like he had much luck prefishing going into the last tournament or this one but hes doin a heck of a job when it matters. Would be sweet to see him fighting for another top 12 spot on saturday!   As for my fantasy team... not so good. I was having a decent year so far (except for tharp last tourney).
    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!
