I dont have the money to buy the equipment to start right now, but i was wondering do you make any custom ice rods at all? Or would it be that hard to make them or one by myself? I want to either build or buy a noodle rod. but i want to make it very light action. grin.gif if you would prefer you can email me at smakinslabs@yahoo.com

Hey slick,

I'll respond for my dad since I'm sure it'll take him a few weeks before he gets online again. He does make ice rods, and nice ones too. If you want a really sweet one ask him about the maple handled rods he makes- they kick butt! He's made some small maple handled rods for panfish that might be right up your alley.
Dad just got back from a rod convention on Sat. Sounds like he learned a few new tricks and taught a lot of people some of his old tricks.
As for your question about getting started, I'd suggest you talk to him personally. Where do you live? He'd meet with you to show you his gear, equipment, etc. if you were ever in the Fisher area (between Grand Forks and Crookston).
As for him e-mailing you, I'd still suggest you call him (218-891-4415 or 218-634-2020). He's "old school" and isn't making the complete shift to communication via e-mail and such. If he e-mails you, he'll just say "call me"- or he'll call you. Also, he types about three words per minute so he isn't fond of wordy responses while typing (he's going to give me hell for that comment when he sees it.)
I hope this helps. Don't worry about calling him- he's a good guy to talk to and will be happy to talk you about fishing rods.

Thanks Scoot, is he normally home most of the day? I have school and then im done around 4pm or so. Well, talk to you later, thanks for the reply. I live in Hawley,MN if you have ever herd of it lol. Its about 25 miles from detroit lakes and about the same from moorehead,MN. Ive been looking for a nice panfish rod, well noodle rod and i think one of thoose with the wood handle would be pretty neat. Also, I bet he probally makes some nice walleye ice fishing rods huh?

If I've ever heard of it? I live in Fargo (if you've ever heard of it!!!) Small world.
You have school in Hawley- student or teacher?

My dad's home pretty quite a bit. He's retired and makes rods/fishes and is a full-time grandpa now. Give him a call day or night and he's bound to be around eventually. If he's not there leave a message and he'll get back to you.

As you may have guessed- it's Rod. Not "fishing Rod", just Rod.
I think he'll be around home today and tonight.

    • Check out the 2017 Obsession Hurcan 366fps and 3.9 lbs!
    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
