riverbasher,

What would you like to know? The cost of the Rod only is $29.99 And the cost of the Buzz Combo is $39.99 I know Reed's in Walker has a handful, as we sent some up during his fishing expo he just had a few weeks ago. He may not have any left of those. But shipping will begin soon to dealers. Just let me know of any other questions.

Tight Lines,

JP Z

Buzz Stix are the most revolutionary ice rods ever developed! They
quiver the tiniest ice flies and jigs. They shimmer larger jigging
spoons and ice lures. This delicate (but deadly) quivering action
simulates the movement of larvae and injured baitfish. It’s a rare and
effective micro-action that’s impossible to duplicate by hand! Buzz Stix
originated in Aqua-Vu inventor Jeff Zernov’s ice fishing house. With his
Aqua-Vu underwater camera, Jeff saw crappies gorging themselves on
quivering larvae emerging from a soft bottom. These fish were feeding
aggressively, but they refused to touch a tiny ice fly. It simply lacked
the right action! The key to Buzz Stix's awesome action is its
patent-pending, cam-driven, blank-mounted motor and free-floating handle
design. To activate, simply depress a waterproof button on the handle.
Designed to tackle everything from panfish and perch to walleyes and
pike, Buzz Stix come in seven different length/action combinations. They
’re crafted from solid graphite, making them extremely light, sensitive,
and durable. And their oversized, lightweight guides minimize line
freeze-up. Buzz Comboz team the rod with a three-ball-bearing instant
anti-reverse reel with an aluminum spool.

These should be available in stores by October.

For the action issues, surprisingly it isn't that much of a deadweight issue. There is a difference if you are "Buzzing" your bait because you won't be able to detect your strikes as readily because there is a lot of movement going on, that is why having either a flasher or camera really helps because you can see the bite. But it just takes a little getting used to. Because if you just pulse the bait you will still be able to have a good sense of feel.

jpz,

How does the sensitivity of the buzz stick compare to a standard ice fishing rod (ie - does the connection between the motor and rod decrease the sensitivity)?

It sounds like a great product... I can hardly wait to get my hands on one...

Thanks!

>>>These should be available in stores by October. <<<

So, In stores in MONTANA??

The question was, will they be available to purchase thru this web site, Fishing Minnesota? I like to buy stuff here when I can, because this site is responsible for just about everything I know about ice fishing and has supplied me with much quality stuff at a reasonable price. So, the question remains........

Sadly these aren't going to be available through this site. So you can guess the "stores" that these will be available in. And yes, you should be able to get them in Montana.

Thanks for photos Rick and jpz. I wish I could be back from Iraq in time to use them this winter, but I don't know when I'm going home exactly yet. We are starting to hear though that we may be back in the early part of February so I might catch real late walleye season and of course some spring perchin....and of course EELPOUT!! hehe. If anyone is interested I have a thread in the Mississippi River North forum that I will keep updated with new info as I get it. Have a fun season and I hope to back home soon

The best thing about these might be that if my wife goes fishing with me, and she gets bored, and I am not ready to leave the lake, this might keep her occupied. On the other hand, if I show it to her, I might never get it back.

    • First snapper yesterday. It was looking for Leech!     Was that Leech?
    • Baked taters  grilled pork chops and Califlower  . Had better Califlower though. 
    • Sunset last night on Burntside lake.    
    • Just don’t know where else to put this ray of hope.
    • We get eggs from locals who have chickens.  The difference in shelf life between washed and unwashed eggs was weird the first time I heard it.  Months for unwashed; maybe a month for washed.   Farm fresh is a fair amount different than from the grocery store.  Bigger yolks and thinner shells are two of the more noticeable differences.  I had my first red yolk eggs a few weeks ago.  Kinda freaked me out but it’s no big deal really.
    • Nature is pretty rad.    I think it's cool the eggs can just sit there for some time.  Especially because it can get quite cold.   There are sometimes a dud or two and I first thought it might be because they froze before mom incubated them but they always kick off.  When I have done post mortem examinations of the duds they always have almost completely developed ducklings inside.  I've never found one that was just some yolk.
    • No mosquitos yet, plenty of flies the last couple of days and here is my first spider outside of the house!    
    • I’ve never studied it but I’m pretty sure she has to be full time incubating before they all start.
    • I have a bunch of people telling me to install a camera in the box and set up a webcast.  I know my parents would love it.  Especially my dad, who built the house.     If I ever get around to it, I'll post a link.
    • I wish I would have caught them taking the leap and deciding which mom to follow.  I saw them that morning and it looked like about 2/3 went with one and 1/3 the other.  Definitely some gansers in the mix too.     I've caught the leap once out of 5 years.  I track it pretty close and can predict within about 5 days window of when I need to watch in the morning for mama duck to fly down and wait.  I had it nailed last year but real life prevented me from seeing it happen.   It's interesting to me that the duck lays an egg or two a day and they pile up over the course of a week/week and a half.  But they all hatch on the same day.  Crazy.  It must have something to do with development kicking off when mama duck starts sitting on them full time.  It's cool that those first layed eggs just sit there in a state of suspended animation waiting for mom to start full time sitting on them.
