Cabela's Catalog/Ice Fishing Rods

Recommended Posts

Is anybody else dissapointed in the new Xmas edition Cabela's Catalog? Only 1 page of Ice fishing gear.
I'm looking for some new crappie/panfish rods, does anybody have any favorites?

Year after year, Cabela's ability to publish a nice section of ice fishing gear in their catalog has disappointed me. Doesn't mean they don't sell it, their stores are full of ice fishing stuff. I believe someone in Cabela's management is missing out on a great way to sell ice fishing stuff.

They have a catalog dedicated to waterfowl hunting, camping, marine, etc.; why not ice fishing?

But on the other hand, I also like to buy my fishing gear in person.

I also like to buy my stuff in person. But it would be nice to see it in a catalog first so a person could compare things.

I think a few years ago Cabela's had a "winter sports" specialty catalog with a lot of ice fishing stuff in it and I have looked for it every year since but haven't seen one. Maybe people looked through it, and went in to buy their things in person and the lack of catalog orders made Cabela's decide not to spend the money to print it again since they could not determine any spending based on the catalog itself? All I know is, one page in Cabela's catalog and one annual InFisherman ice angling issue is not enough for me-does anyone know of any other magazines that come out specifically for ice fishing?

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
