Limit Creek Rods

Recommended Posts

How many of you folks have used these or purchased them? I used them when I've been out with Walli one and when out with Turk. I have to say, I am very impressed with the rods. So impressed that I purchased two Med/Heavy trolling rods and one smoothie. They are well work checking out in my book. Best rod I have seen for the money and I would put them against a more expensive rod any day.

I have an Ultralight panfish rod. All I can say is it's been an outstanding rod. Very sensitive, yet has a great backbone to it. It's been my go-to rod for light tackle fishing for 2 years now. It's great for pannies, and will tackle the occational slimer well with it's backbone.

When the time comes to replace my other rods, I will be seriously considering buying another limit creek. Also, don't forget about the lifetime warranty!

On their HSOforum the don't list a UL/L power rod ... do they not make them anymore? I may be looking at getting a new UL/L and would like to check one out from Limit Creek if they are available.

where does one pick up the limit creek rods. looking at getting another walleye jig rod

You can find them here Limit Creek Rods and order them online or you can click on Distrubutors and go and pick them up. If you are looking for a walleye jig rod, I would for sure go with a smoothie or if you really want some fun and one you can use as a dead stick go with a Extendable Medium-Light Power Spinning Rod. It's over 8' long. Was in the boat with Walli1 Saturday when he pulled in a 31" cat with 4lb test using that rod. That will be the next one added to my arsenal.

I have the "smoothie" and Turk's 8ft 6 rod. The smoothie is just a great all-around rod. I use mine for all types of walleye techniques - riggin, jiggin and pitching- and have even used it for crappies - both bobbering and pitching light jigs. My preferred setup is 10lb Fireline and Fluoro leader. Takes the already good smoothie sensitivity up to another level. Can't beat the rod for the money.

Lisa, I'd get the smoothie but take a serious look at the 8ft 3in rod as a rigging rod. I have both and I used the longer rod a lot this winter dragging jigs for river walleyes. Really did the job for me. I you have the $$$ I'd seriously consider getting both.

I'm with Mark on this. I just piked up the smoothing and have used it before. It's a great all around rod. If you are just getting one, then go with a smoothie. If you can get both of these I would do that. They are just great rods for the money.

Is there a store (Cabellas, Gander, Fleet, Scheels, Sportsmans, etc) you can physically feel and look at these rods?

Just check out the distributors on their HSOforum which are mostly local baitshops. They carry them at a much cheaper price than buying them online also. So no I don't know any of the big guys carrying them.

I haven't been there in a couple of years, but the bait shop just outside of Stillwater that has a cafe attached to it carries Limit Creek. Can't remember the name of the place off hand, though.

As stated, I don't think there are big stores that carry them yet. Our own Turk designs these rods and has them manufactured. This is another reason I love the rods. Knowing Turk, he is a great guy and to be honest, if I can get a great quality rod cheaper than others and the money goes to a guy I like and have a lot of respect for, that's a win win. Here's a list of distributors from the site.

Moore's Bait & Tackle - Minneapolis, MN (These guys are sponsers here so I can post the HSOforum) www.mooresbaitandtackle.com

Blue Ribbon Bait - Oakdale, MN

Everts Resort - Hager City, WI

Gen's Bait and Sport Shop - Amery, WI

Gregerson Ace Hardware - Baldwin, WI

Jimmy's Bait - Stillwater, MN

I bought the smoothie last year after first hearing about Limit Creek on Fishingminnesota.com. I heard such good reviews from users and then went to Limit Creek's HSOforum and exchange emails with Turk and he explained all about the rods and I was convinced.

I absolutely love this rod. The feel is off the chart and it just looks like a cool rod. I recommend Limit Creek to all my friends who are now looking for rods.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
