New Clam/Jason Mitchell Rods?

Recommended Posts

Anybody have any input in these new open water rods? Not sure if I like the smaller eyes all the way up to the tip. Other than that they seem like a sweet rod for the price!!

Great feeling rod. Light smooth action, plenty of nice backbone and there priced right. Love his ice rods! Buddy bought a 6' medium for garbage fish outta the muddy ditch. I have a 7' older model and its really nice for jerk baits. I'll prolly buy a new one for a jig rod when my jig rod breaks.

Cabelas has started carrying them as well, although their selection is very small. I stopped in at their Walleye expo last weekend and talked to Jason Mitchell himself about these rods. I'm impressed with them, especially at the price and ended up picking one up...will post again when I get a chance to use it. While they aren't a $325 loomis, they are a great rod for the price and what I like about them is that he uses the stuff he puts his name on and stands behind it.

The GM in St Cloud has them. I'd imagine they'd be at other locations, but I dunno for sure.

That's the only thing that Gander in St Cloud has! Their fishing department is absolutely horrible and keeps getting worse every year.

Oh, not true!!!!

They have a bunch of stuff that's 15% (or more) more expensive than at least two stores within a five minute drive. I imagine it's a tough business model to make work....those big stores are expensive.

I recently watched on of Jason's shows where he highlighted the one foot marks on his rods. That is a nifty idea to adjust your slip bobbers!

Any stores in and around the metro have these rods in stock?

Woodbury Gander has them in stock. Casting, Spinning, and I believe the rolling rods as well.

Thorne Bros has a rack. Felt like a nice rod for the buck. Not a big fan of the handle though.

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
