      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.

Jason Mitchell Elite Series JMS24SB Ice Combo

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.

    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside

    • They love them, I used to get 40# sacks for $16 in Thief River Falls at Hunters Outlet. Haven't had to work up there for a couple years now, it was a great buy.   One draw back was the small moths coming from the bag in the warm months. Came back from fishing in Alaska to a garage full of them one time.   
    • If I leave my 2 lines down when I leave my fishouse and go to my buddies house say 75’ away they are considered unattended and illegal, but what if the lines are on buzzer reels and I use a baby monitor to listen for a bite?
    • Yah, I bet I coulda looked that one up myself, eh? 
    • The Air fryer XL was 120.00 and the Air Fryer Oven was 160.00. If you Google Power Air Fryer or put a .com at the end you should find it. 3 or 4 easy payment of $39.99 depending on model and free shipping.
