Cheaper Than Cabelas!

11 posts in this topic

I don;t know why but i just felt i have to plug a store for a minute! I shop bass pro and cabelas quite a bit. Recently i couldn't stop thinking about the new St. Croix legend ice rod with the built in strike indicator. It was hard for me to justify spending the money but the idea of an ice-free spring bobber all winter seemed well worth the money! Anyways i was shopping around for the best deal and i found it! Red Rock Wilderness Outfitters have them for 49.95 (which is 5 cents cheaper the cabelas) but they have FREE shipping. I alos ordered mine yesterday and got a free St.Croix jig eye-hole punch but that promotion seems to have ended. The funny thing is i live about twenty minutes away from this store, in Ely, and got the rod shipped to me anyways because it was free. But i highly recommend checking out their deals.

Red Rock does have some good prices but you can't beat Cabelas return policy and customer service.

I second the Sportsman's Warehouse. They actually hire people that know fishing and hunting.

Does the Red Rock place have a webpage?

I'm a big fan of giving the small business's stores. I try to do that when ever possible.

I picked up a couple of the St.Criox ledgend rods at the tail end of last year - heck of a deal at $35 a piece. Love these rods for panfish.

I ordered some stuff last year from Red Rock and it came quick and perfect. Two thumbs up for them.

I also use cabelas and i just returned a broken St. Croix Legend rod...the second one in as many seasons. they are a good rod but not very durable. So...for the extra .5 cents I spent at cabelas I have gotten $100.00 dollars worth of replacement rods at no charge the past two seasons. I dont know of any retailer that will do that for you other than cabelas. Just my .05 cents worth. Iceman out>

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
