Thorne Bros Rods

Recommended Posts

Say guys just thinking about my next Thorne Bros Rod. I currently have 2 sweet heart walleye rods and a dead stick and they are awesome. I was woundering what you guys use for crappies. I was thinking of getting one of there sweat heart perch rods for that. Or do you guys go and used that sweet heart panfish rod for that. I guess knowing myself I probably will just go ahead and buy both. All I know is that since buying my first one last year I will never buy another rod from fleet farm.

I would go with a 28" Sweet Heart

I would talk with the guys at Thorne Brothers. They know their rods inside and out. Tell them what you have and what you are looking for and they will direct you into the right rod. You might want to consider having them build a rod for you. There is little differance in cost to have one made. Talk with Bill and he can make you what ever you are looking for.

Between my wife and myself we have at least 24 of Thorne Brothers rods. It has taken me over an hour at times to pick out the exact rod action I am looking for.

I use the 24" panfish sweetheart for 90% of my panfishing. I use the 28" as a back up and float rod. For jigging, I like the 24". The perch rod is heavier than you would think.

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.

    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
