  1. ks, I'll agree with Delmuts. I have nothing but symetres and I love them. I am pretty hard on my stuff and have yet to have one fail on me. They are a great reel. Good Luck chev
  2. This is a great act of compassion! I am not an Ice Fisherman but I do love to fish on the soft water. My donation may not be much but it is on the way. Come on guys let's do this! Rick please email me at [email protected] Good Luck and God Bless the young man this is going to. Chev
  3. DTRO, Nick Coleman, hummm. I've got a few names for him. If he knew or cared about anything about the sporting community he would have wrote differently. I wonder what Cabelas thinks of his article. I just wonder how you could compare Humans to Animals. I Will be canceling my subscription to the Star Trib. What a shame. Chev
  4. I would love to fish with Kevin VanDam. My second choice would be Gary Roach, he's a super great guy! Bring on the open water! Chev
  5. Nj, I would look to the Shimano line. For around $100 you can get a Shimano Compre which would serve you well. They have a life time warranty which is pretty much non-existent in the rod industry now. I used to fish with Gloomis and St. Croixs and now mainly fish with Shimano due in large part to the warranty. I feel Shimano rods are every bit as good also. Also if you wanted to spend a little more the Crucial series are excellent, I love them! As far as a type of rod that will depend on what exactly you will be doing with them. I like a longer rod 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 for throwing plast
  6. Lucky, I use flourocarbon for casting cranks and some spinners. It has worked great for me. I also use Power Pro in some situations which also works well. I'm not a fan of fireline because of what you are running into, just my opinion though. I use 12-20# Flourocarbon and 20-40# Power Pro. Good Luck Chev
  7. What an interesting post. I think I will have some of the new SPRO Frogs? I think that is what they were. I saw them the other day at the store. They look like a colorful sumo frog. Should be good for the piggy bass! Bring on the Open Water! Happy Holidays Chev
  8. Hey just an FYI...I was at Reeds last weekend and they have lots of Shimano Crucials in Stock. Didn't look specificly for that rod though. Might be an option though. Good Luck Chev
  9. Happy Holidays to you also! Fish On! Chev
  10. Riversnags, I own a Stratos Bass boat and I love it. It is an 18.5 with a 150 Vmax on it. Does about 62 loaded down. This boat is a 2003 so I have no experience in a older model stratos. But I do like mine. If you have any specific questions please ask! Good Luck Chev
  11. As the others have said, Yes it is legal. 18 and 16 are the classifications for Shotguns and Rifles. Have Fun Chev
  12. Cody, Under Armour is hte best stuff that I have found so far. I use the cold weather gear for hunting. It has great moisture wicking properties, which help when you are active in the cold. It keeps you dry and warm. Yes, it is suppose to fit tight. The tight fit allows it to hug your body and wick moisture better. I wear an XL shirt and XXL Under Armour. So far it is the best thing that I have found. Good Luck Chev
  13. I have about 15 in my boat. Like Ross said I too hate to retie when ever I want to switch a lure. When I fish competitively I usually have 8-12 on the deck. Instant lure change if you know what I mean! Good Luck Chev
  14. Hey AWH, If my memory serves me right, you work at Gander in Baxter right?
  15. Hoggs, Gunflint is right. $50 no questions asked at any Gloomis dealer. I've had to do it to a couple of my rods. Although I am done buying Loomis Rods... Good Luck Chev
  16. Yeah there are lots of great placs on the whitefish chain to fish for bass. Some spots to try are Island Lake, Loon Lake, Upper and Lower Hay, Bertha just to name a few. Big Trout has Smallies and there are a lot of good sized ones if you can find them. Places to fish em? Outside Weedlines, Points, Docks, Reeds... Good Luck and Have Fun Chev
  17. Yes, it is very frustrating. Unfortunately most of the Gander Mountain stores are like this. I have stopped shopping there because of that and other reasons. The new Cabelas store will be a good one...I hope. Other than that I spend a lot of time up north and the new REEDS store in Baxter has treated me great! I will be spending a lot of time there. Well Good Luck with the Tackle Hunt. Chev
  18. Ring Free is a great product. I use the Shock Treatment once a year just add 2 ounces of product to every 10 gallons of gas. Then I just use the normal 1oz to 10gals. Just put it in every time you fill up. Pretty easy. Good Luck Chev
  19. There are a lot of good polarized glasses on the market. I have been fortunate enough to try a wide range of them. I will have to say that most of them in the $100-$250 range are excellent. My personal favorites are Raybans. They were about $150. Maui Jims, Costa Del Mar and Oakley Polarized are also good ones too. Good Luck Chev
  20. There are tons of places...But kind of depends where you are located?? Chev
  21. Stainless, Demont is a great bass lake. I have had great success pitchin texas rigged worms at the weedlines and under docks. Good Luck! Opener on the WAY!!!!!! Chev
  22. I added a Ballistic Prop to my arsenal last year and I love it. It gives plenty of hole shot and a good top end. I can't remember what Pitch it is but I think it is a 14 3/4 Dia. Well have fun and good luck Chev
  23. Yes, Fig Rig Rods are excellent rods to get. They are a custom shop out of...er...I can't remember. But they are very popular in muskie circles and sell other rods also. I know Reeds Sports carries them but I am not sure who else does. Hope this helps. Good Luck Chev
  24. Yes Deitz is correct...As usual! Shimano Rods with Green Labels are over the counter exchange at ANY shimano dealer. If they won't do the exchange for you I would cease to shop there as they will get credit for the rod from Shimano... Good Luck Chev
