      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 .

Jason Mitchell rods and reels

Recommended Posts

Watch in the near future for Jason's new line up of combo rod & reel. Jason has a great line up of rods for the panfishernman to the heavy duty laker or northern rod.

The Jason Mitchell Elite Series Combos feature a tiny JMS500 Spinning Reel with 3 ball bearings, extreme temperature lubrication system, infinite anti reverse, over size spool for less line twist while presenting light mono in cold conditions and multi disk drag for added smoothness with small diameter ice lines.

Jim,

You'll love your new rods when you get em. I have been using these rods extensively since their inception, where they have proven themselves time and time again while on the ice. The new reels and combo options are going to be awesome as well. Like all the products, a great piece of equipment at a quality price.

Is the following model considered an Ultra light rod? It is the 24 inch spring bobber.

I wouldnt consider the rod UL.. More so L.. Which is good, to give the rod more hook setting power from the extra bend you get when the spring goes down. The fast action and blank on the rod lets you set into the fish a lot easier, then some of the other flimsy spring bobber rods you see out there on the market.

Update: Just bought a few meatsticks for my Dad and I. Awesome deadstickin' rod. didn't see any combo's (@ GM) but the reels look pretty nice as well. Bring on the ice already!

The "meatstick" is my "go to" rod all season long! Deadsticking it works great, but team up with a small jigging spoon tipped with plastics, and with that sensitive tip, you can feel EVERYTHING that is going on down below!

I my opinion, that meatstick is the best rod for the $'s available today!

Personally I would go with the spring bobber rod. Nothing wrong with the meatstick but I like the spring bobber rod a bit more.

Kinda funny regarding the meat stick. I got my 1st one last season and accidently broke 4 inches of the end. At 1st I was pretty bummed but then decided to tip the end off. Even after that it became my number 1 go-to stick. It has everything I could ask for, still has plenty of sensitivity and never lost any of the back bone,(gained a little more i think). It's been left the same & the more I type the more anxious I am becoming.

I enjoy playing fish on the meatstick better and I probably use it more than the spring bobber rod. The spring bobber rod on the other hand will surely show you bites that the meatstick wont once you learn how to "read" it.

If I was only going to use one I'd go with the meatstick, For aggressive jigging, I prefer the meat stick. On days when a "still" presentation is needed, I'll switch to the spring bobber rod.

I also had a rod tip break on a meat stick, I got on the phone and called the number on the rod's package, and I didn't get "coorporate headquarters", or "push one for customer service"...That number gets answered by Jason Mitchell himself!

I told him that my rod broke after catching LOTS of fish with it, and Jason had a new rod sent out to me the next day! With customer service like that, I'll stick with Jason's rods for a long, long time!

I added the Meat Stick and Jason Mitchell spring bobber rod to my collection this off season and can't wait to try them out on first ice!!!! I too have called up just to tell the office how happy I was with my Jason Mitchell slip bobber open water rod and guess what..... Jason himself answered then too!!! What a great guy and great product!

I always carry my meatstick in its own hard tubed case. This year I will add a Otter hard case and use that at times when I have to carry multiple rods.

One word of advise is if the tip freezes up suck the ice off it with your mouth. DO NOT try to pick it off with your fingers or tap it. If you take a bit of care with this rod it will last you years and its a blast to use. Everyone I let use mine went and bought one last season.

Been hearing so much about them, where can I get them? The advice on this site has been awesome thru the years, from augers on down.

    • Well to hens came out in the morning behind me eating theb a big tom pushed 4 more hens out the pther two joined them and the went the wrong way i should of set up 20 more yards down and i would of had a great shot! Stupid birds
    • Okay guys, we need a name.  I won't register my bird or tell the story until we do. (sounds like blackmail, don't it ?  )   Somebody throw one out and it shall be done.
    •   True that!  
    • Starting at Daga (this week) you have to have your drivers entered 30 minutes prior to the first practice. It used to be you had to have picked them the night before qualifying, so if practice was on Friday and qualifying was Sat. you could use practice to help make entries. Now it will all be done before the first practice.
    • Scoot, I have had the same issues with both my 11 year old boy and 14 year old girl.  They have both ended up with opportunities each years.  Frustrating as it my be, it is still worth it.  Thats why we have teams to pick each other up, i might bet, being a Scoot child, she will impress us by the end.   Good luck out there!
    • I'll try to get some pictures posted today. I also had Morgan out on Saturday and she just didn't have the patients 2 stick it out shoot a bird. She made it until 8:15 and was ready to quit. I tried like heck to get her to stay but she was tired and whiny and ready to go. Seemed like a time where it was best to try to accept losing the battle but hopefully winning the war so we packed up and headed home. After I loaded the truck we turned around and went past the spot our blind had just been and there was a nice tom 20 yards away from where we just left. Doah!   I'm a little concerned about getting her out enough to have a legitimate chance with her. I kind of regret including her on the team because I'm not sure she will hunt enough to have a legit chance. 10 year old little girls have a mind of their own no doubt! She's not nearly as driven and single track minded as Ryan is when it comes to hunting.
    • Great job- Love to hear the kids getting birds.   Congrats
    •     Time to explore other states I think...  
    • Thanks. I decided to go with my gut, and ordered medium light action 8'6" Depthmaster rods. Spent some time trolling with them the other day, and I think they'll be fine. Just gotta remember to be careful with the larger fish around the boat when netting. Now if I could just better understand seasonal locations/presentations for my local walleye, I'd be all set! Trolled for 4.5 hrs without so much as a nibble yesterday. Trolled various cranks and harnesses the entire time, at different depths/speeds (1.0-1.5 mph with harnesses, and 1.8 -2.4 with cranks), hoping to make contact with one. I did find the Precission Trolling app to be pretty darn accurate with my dive curves though. So that was refreshing ... :-)
    • Nice bird! After my uneventful day Sat I gave Sunday a break Going out Monday morning to see If I can tag one.
