      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

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.

    • Anyone have a purple martin house? I’m planning on putting one up this spring, but I don’t quite have the open space that is suggested (minimum of 40 ft from tall trees/house). Wondering if anyone has had those same issues, but were still successful in attracting purple martins? The pole I bought is 12 ft high, so I’m thinking of maybe buying a second one, and using a couple of the extensions to make it a few feet higher to compensate for the lack of open space. Have the martins had a noticeable impact on bugs? I’m hoping they can do a number on the horse flies in my neighborhood. Plus, they sound really pretty 
    • Anoka Union paper says it is moving into the sports authority building in Coon Rapids.  
    • While the southern half of the state saw some significant rainfall and even some flooding this week, areas of northern Wisconsin received up to nearly a foot of new snow. Snowmobile trails remain in good to excellent condition in nearly 20 of the most northern tier counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Cross-Country Ski Trail Conditions are also good to excellent across the north.Cross-country ski trails are in excellent condition at Pattison State Park, which received nearly a foot of snow this week. The park is hosting a Winterfest on Saturday.Photo credit: Gervase Thompson A kids fisheree on Lake Noquebay in Marinette County last weekend produced some very nice fish including perch, crappie, bluegill, walleye, northern, and trout. The lake ice was nearly 2 feet thick. There have been good northern pike catches on the back waters of the Wolf River on tip ups baited with a shiner.Whitefish fishing has remained pretty decent up and down the entire Bay of Green Bay. Some anglers are targeting perch too but with moderate to poor success. Whitefish were still being caught off the Oconto breakwater in decent numbers. Toward the end of the week only anglers from Sawyer Harbor had good luck and were able to come in with their limits of whitefish after a half day out on the ice. Anglers fishing the Fox River at Voyageurs park report fishing slowed with a few walleyes and whitefish still being caught. .
    • The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.    
    • I can recall,   farther back than you think, of running into one now and then and finding one inn a trap from time to time. And this was MORE than fifty years ago,  so they've been around a while. Maybe just an uptick in the population in southern MN.
    • For any of you that have ever had a desire to do any sledding in the Black Hills... This is definitely the year to do it. This is by far the most snow that I have seen out there. On most years, you can get lucky to ride either the Northern or Southern hills... This year both are awesome and the meadows are full! I am hoping to get out there once more before the end of the month.
    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
