Jason Mitchell Rods

17 posts in this topic

Forgot all of my rods on the lake last weekend so I am in search of some new equipment. I have used the Dave Genz Gold Series rods and really liked them but I have also heard a lot of great things about the Jason Mitchell Combos. I will be getting 2 crappie/panfish combos and 2 walleye combos and wondering what people think about the Jason Mitchell combos for those needs.

Any suggestions appreciated.

The Jason Mitchell Meatstick continues to be the most versatile rod in my arsenal. I've used it for anything from finicky Gills to monster Northern. Great all around rod. Pair it with a tip-down for the ultimate in sensitivity on a deadstick. Just take care of the tip in transport as I've heard more than a few people have broken the tip right off. Great rods IMO.

Good prices on these rods at the sporting goods store in Walker. Fast shipping. Not sure I can say the name in this forum.

Reeds? There I said it. I don't think anyone has a problem supporting a local store. Heck, I am from Nebraska and give more business to Reeds than any of my local stores.

just got the spring bobber and like it. Lots of places have them on sale if you can find them. Got mine at GM as a combo for $34.

I have Jason Mitchell walleye, perch, spring bobber, and meatstick rods. IMO they are the best bang for your buck. High quality rods at a price a working class slob can afford.

I'll admit that after I got the meatsticks, I stopped using the spring bobber rod. Who needs a spring bobber when you have a meat stick??? As stated, be very careful with the meatstick tip. I put a chunk of 1 1/4" PVC pipe in my rod bag and put the meatstick inside that for transport.

Don't forget to look at the Mitchell combos as the real is pretty nice for the money.

I ended up going with the following combos from the store mentioned before:

Crappie

1 Dave Genz Gold Series 27UL - $18.00

1 Jason Mitchell Spring Bobber 24 - $24.00

Walleye

1 Jason Mitchell 26ML - $24.00

1 Jason Mitchell 28MS - $24.00

I think I made out pretty good for $90.00 and free shipping. Now the next task is to give the new boys some names.

Thanks again.

I picked up a 26" Perch combo today, I paid $39 for it, then left it on the roof of my Jeep and it managed to stay there the whole way from Mankato to New Ulm....I think it likes me!

I need to rest tomorrow and watch the 500. Chapter PF banquet in about 10 minutes.

Hopefully I'll bring home another gun.

    • Thanks for the offer and info.  I will have to get out and look around at some. I'm picky and willing to wait till I find that cherry rig to come around so I might not be getting one for a while. Which is OK because I'm in no hurry.
    • little early fer that fish aint it!!!!!! I wanna see pictures of you camping come tomorrow morning when da blizzard comes thru!!!!!!!!!!!! nice pictures though!!!!!!!!!!!
    • whitefish maybe? 
    • If I understand correctly this only for bows. I have a crossbow and from what I understand it is considered a firearm. Is that the case? My son has a bow and has the archery tag.
    • so ... dillon has a bird to enter and 1957 is still hunting? looks like we are in good shape, but lot of guys still hunting in MN and WI, i assume   ended my season friday. got the blind set up before the shower started. it quit right before sunrise time and there was lots of gobbling on the roost a couple hundred yards away but none where i heard them close by when scouting a couple days earlier. a few distant gobbles on the ground, then nothing after the rain and wind picked up again. finally saw a hen step out of the woods about 830 and start heading toward me. soft yelps kept her coming, then out steps a big tom and several more hens heading my way but when they got to an opening in the fence from the stalk field into another timber, the tom paused, i had the bead on him, decided it was too far, and then they were gone the rain quit a half hour later and i ramped up the calling with some louder yelps and cutts. a few minutes later a head comes over a rise in the field and its a solo tom. he ignored the dekes and headed toward the fence gap where the others went, stopped and fanned without gobbling, but some soft yelps, clucks and purrs kept him coming my way. dropped him at 40 yards after stepping it off to where he lay, i kept going to where the other tom left the field and it was 55 big steps, so glad i didnt shoot went 23, 10, 1 but the rain cut loose again on the way back to the truck so i didnt take pictures  
    • If you were anywhere close to southern Minny I would invite you over and let you drive mine and show you the things I look for both in the jeep and plow since mine seems pretty close to what you are looking for. If you have any questions PM me.
    • Good luck PFUNK! Looking like that will be my next day out too. forecast looks good as well!
    • I think the TJ might be the best choice with the 4.0 which is what I did.I bought the plow used after the fact. I got the plow for 1200 but the wiring was not good nor was the mount so I had a new custom, heavier duty mount made at a fab shop and I bought a brand new wiring kit from Western. I also bought all stainless bolts for it so there are no rust issues with them. Wiring the plow was a task. I basically had to remove the entire interior including console, seats and many dash parts to run the wiring.   One thing to consider- There is really very little room for much of anything in them. Running new wires, adding a speaker anywhere or even having 2 guys, 2 guns, a dog and a cooler is a tight fit. The back seat works for kids but not adults and mostly I take my back seat out so I have at least some room to put stuff. Running the wiring to run the plow took probably 8 hours or more spread over a few days and for a bigger guy it's pretty much impossible to reach under the dash and run wires,connect to fuse blocks even with the seat removed.    But the ability to take off the top and cruise the gravel roads with no doors while hunting is not possible in basically any other vehicle except maybe a Manx Dune buggy which has also been on my bucket list and those aren't 4x4.
