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.

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
