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.

That must have been one heck of a sale to pick up Mitchell combo's for that pric. They usually run at $49.00 each.

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.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. 
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
