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

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
