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!

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
