Hey Rick

Recommended Posts

First, Merry Christmas! I hope you have a great holiday season.

Second, did you get the rod my dad sent you? If yes, please shoot him an e-mail and let him know you got it. He's wondering if it showed up or not. How's it look? He figured it was dang close to what you were looking for- I hope he's right.
Most importantly, I hope you get to break it in soon.

Oh yes, smile.gif
I have it and it is one SWEET IceLeaders Laker Rod.

It has a Roberts wrap so I can use the rod like a spinning reel rod yet use my baitcaster for those hard charging lakers.

Extra large Titanium tip, and wide holographic guides. All built for the abuse the new lines might try to put on them.

Should be sweet for icing big pike or muskie too.

If anyone wants a True Sweetheart of a Laker Rod ask Rod Engel for the:
Laker Rod

[scoot, I don't have your Dad's contact info-New PC and someone deleted that info on me. Can you put that down here so folks can get a hold of him.]

I'm telling all of you, this is a perfect Lake Trout Rod set-up. If you have questions I'm sure Rod or Scoot will be happy to answer them.

Not only is it functional, THE ROD by ENGEL IS A WORK OF ART as well! smile.gif

Thank you so much Rod!!!

I certainly didn't expect it before Christmas.

    • Did well fishing today. Pitching jigs to the rocks in town produced fish. Also headed north up river and picked up some fish there. Released the females and kept a 2 man limit of males.  Couldn’t have asked for a better day of weather to be on the water.    
    • No pictures tonight because my phone was on the charger but I made no flip, smoked, hamburgers like this. ....   https://grillagrills.com/recipes/no-flip-burger-recipe/
    • Pfunk, I can take one of those jakes out for you! Slow first day for me, just one gobbling at the thunder.
    • You don't need one of those, they're overpriced anyway. Any smoker will do.
    • Thanks Dave. Sure wish I had one of them expensive fancy pellet grills.
    • yep sucker em with gobble call or gobbler yelps on a diaphragm ,they fit nicely in a deep fryer !
    • Man what a frustrating day. Had a pair of jakes that decided to spend their day in our vicinity and they ran off a pair of toms that were cutting across the plowing headed for us this morning, then this evening we were pretty confident the nicest tom we saw today would be headed past us to get back to the roost and sure enough... he followed the script. As I was readying the gun on him those 2 jakes decide to come out of the woods, he sees them, and dumps into the ravine with them chasing behind.    EDIT: Now 3 times they have run one off. That tom just made another attempt to sneak his way in and they ran him off again. Never wanted to shoot a jake as bad as I want these two gone.
    • O i know they can be.  I have a good CO and fire detector.  I had one in my last house and it worked good.  I dont plan on doing much sleeping in it maybe a few times a winter.  
    • It's basically how chicken is cooked for bbq contests.   I started out by trimming excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs. Then I make a brine of water, salt, brown sugar and franks red hot. I like to leave the chicken pieces in the brine for at least 4 hours.    I heat up the grill to 300 and melt 2 sticks of butter in a cake pan. When the grill is preheated and the butter is melted I put the chicken pieces in skin up but some do it skin down. I sprinkle my rub seasoning on the top of the skin and under the skin. Cook in smoker at 300 for about 1 hour.    Take pan out of smoker and take chicken out of butter. Dip each piece in bbq sauce and sprinkle on more rub and put back on grill for about another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked to about 165-170.
