St. Croix Fishing Reels

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if Sportsman's Warehouse carries St. Croix fishing reels? It seems like a lot of places carry the fishing rods, but not the reels. Why is that?

been about a year since I've been into the Fargo Sportsmans, I don't remember seeing them there...

The reason that most people don't carry them is probably low $$ margin and the fact that they carry Diawa Lunas (about $20 more and vertually the same reel). It's also a price point issue for places that don't sell many high end Muskie reels. To be honest, I have never had someone come in and ask a St. Croix Reel... It is a fantastic reel though, I believe that the only difference was the bait clicker in the St. Croix used to be plastic and the Luna was metal which now they are the same and the Luna has holes milled across the top of the level wind. Very small differences.

It's a good way to save a quick $20 bucks

...Maybe Diawa might make a model change and so St.Croix will have to wait for the new ones to come out????

    • 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  
    • I agree with purpleflloyd..........seasoning. I MIGHT use a grill brush twice a year that's it. 
    • Well first off you would probably need a permit but I would think 1000.00 should take care of it   
    • Auuuug, that suks!  Really nice area up there. 
    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
