Which stores still have their Ice Rods out for sale?

Has anyone seen any good quality rods still out on display in the Northwest Metro or even up towards St. Cloud??

I am looking to add a couple pan fish rods to the collection yet this spring.

Thanks

I spose Spring Lake Park would be too far out of your way?

I was at Thorne Brothers Sunday and Monday. They have a nice selection out to look at. I don't know how much quality you want, but that's what they deal in.

I picked up a new 7-1/2 foot muskie rod but had to handle a couple of those sweet jig rods they make too. winkgrin

Could you tell me some of the local bait shops.

I know of the National sporting goods stores but not the locals.

I would love to check them out

three local shops that come to mind; Bait Den, cty rd 75 south side of St Cloud, Tackle Box and More, cty rd 75 about a mile north of Bait Den, and Stop Light Bait on E St Germain and Hwy 10. laugh If you're coming from Alex take the Cty Rd 75 exit at St Augusta and turn left onto cty 75. Bait Den is north at 33rd St and cty 75. Tackle Box is north of that left side also big yellow building next to Shooter Saloon and Eatery. Great place for a sandwich and a cold one. smile

I'm sure you'll find some sales going on at one of these. If you stop at Tackle Box and More and talk to Chuck, grey hair. Tell him I told you to stop by. I know he carries the Genz rods, had quite a few when I was there a week ago and caught some minnies. I live only 3/4 mile from him so I usually stop there. Ask him to show you the Granite City Rattlin jig. This was hotter than H on LOW again this year, and last week my son kicked my butt with the pink, smaller version on some crappies. Good luck with your search. Bill

    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
