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 find that I go to SW quite a bit as well for the same reason.

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>

    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
