Scotty's Custom Rods.

Recommended Posts

I would like to Welcome Scotty from Scottys Custom Rods from Big Lake, Mn.

Scotty took a community ed class on rod building approx four years and has been building rods for the past four years. Scotty specializes in ice rods and also builds custom rods to fit your needs. Most of Scottys rods are built in the fall so he always has a good supply on hand for his customers. He also has extra blanks on hand to build you that one of a kind ice rod that you have always wanted.

Scotty started building rods and showed them to his customers at his DQ and since it has spiraled almost out of control.

I have Scotty building a Laker/Northern rod for me with a spiral wrap and fitted for a bait caster reel. I will have this new rod with me at the Burntside Bash if anyone would like to take a look.

Scottys Custom Rods is the new Inside forum sponsor of the Equipment Forum.

Again, Welcome Scotty to Fishing Minnesota and Hot Spot Outdoors.

I had the pleasure of using my new laker rod from Scotty this past weekend at the Burntside Bash. This rod was very well built and also worked very well.

Thanks Scotty. smile.gif

Dietz, I used this rod and my other and the laker in the avatar was caught with my Thorne rod.

Crappie Kid, if you look at my post at the top there is a link to his web page. He has all his ice rod prices there and there is also his contact info.

If you have some ideas for a custom rod, I would give Scotty a call and he will let you know.

I got a good look at one of Scotty's walleye rods. This rod was very well built. Of the two rods I have seen both were of high quality in craftmanship and the roberts wrapped rod I purchased from Scooty and used didnt let me down. cool.gif

Thanks for the nice rods Scotty. smile.gif

Nice looking rods. I think I may give one or two a try. Was planning on getting a thorne bros rod or two. If scotty's rods are just as good in quality as thornes rods. A guy can't go wrong saving the $20 bucks per rod.

I received a Scotty's rod as a prize at the Appeldoorns get-together on Mille Lacs last week and this rood looks top notch. I also bought a Thorne Bros walleye rod before the trip so when I get a new reel for the Scotty's rod I will compare the two. The Scotty's rod is very nice and very clean. I can't wait to use it.

Scotty - nice looking rods, I'm a custom builder myself, so I know what I'm looking at ;-)

Guys - if you are looking for a baitcasting style ice rod - have Scotty build you a spiral wrap/acid wrap/simple spiral/Roberts wrap (whatever you want to call it) rod - they are the ULTIMATE in power and control. You gain a ton of stability by rotating the guides to the bottom of the rod. This friday I'll be in the Apostle Islands with Jim Hudson fishing lakers, I'll have my new 36" laker rod that I built for this trip - spiral wrapped, the only way to go!

    • The Best Winter Fishing Destinations for Anglers Winter can be a great time for fishing, with fewer crowds and opportunities to catch a variety of cold-water fish species. However, choosing the right winter fishing destination can be challenging, as some areas are better suited for winter fishing than others. In this essay, we will explore some of the best winter fishing destinations for anglers, from frozen lakes to rivers and streams. Ice Fishing in Minnesota Minnesota is known for its world-class ice fishing, with thousands of frozen lakes and miles of rivers and streams to explore. Anglers can catch a variety of fish species, including walleye, northern pike, and panfish. Popular ice fishing destinations in Minnesota include Lake of the Woods, Mille Lacs Lake, and Upper Red Lake. Steelhead Fishing in the Great Lakes The Great Lakes region offers excellent winter steelhead fishing, with opportunities to catch these hard-fighting fish in the rivers and streams that feed into the lakes. Some of the best steelhead fishing destinations in the Great Lakes include the Niagara River in New York, the Pere Marquette River in Michigan, and the Salmon River in New York. Trout Fishing in Pennsylvania Pennsylvania is home to some of the best winter trout fishing in the country, with over 4,000 miles of stocked and wild trout streams to explore. The state's limestone streams offer excellent fishing opportunities for brown and rainbow trout, while the Lehigh River is known for its trophy-sized trout. Popular winter trout fishing destinations in Pennsylvania include Spring Creek, Penns Creek, and the Youghiogheny River. Salmon Fishing in Alaska Alaska is known for its incredible fishing opportunities, and winter is no exception. Winter salmon fishing in Alaska can be an unforgettable experience, with opportunities to catch king, coho, and chum salmon in the state's rivers and streams. Some of the best winter salmon fishing destinations in Alaska include the Kenai River, the Kasilof River, and the Situk River. Redfish Fishing in Louisiana Louisiana is a popular winter fishing destination for anglers looking to catch redfish. These hard-fighting fish can be found in the state's marshes, bayous, and estuaries, with the best fishing usually occurring in the winter months. Some of the top winter redfish fishing destinations in Louisiana include the Delacroix area, the Venice area, and the Lafitte area.

Excellent brands like Ocoopa, products are so portable and easy to carry in a pocket or bag for fishing or hunting those long-time outdoor activities, which can provide heat for several hours. And some of their hand rechargeable hand warmers come with the additional ability to charge your phone or other devices, making them a perfect item for extended outdoor activities.
