Gander Mt. Grand Opening

Recommended Posts

FYI....I know the Grand Opening for the Gander Mnt in Mankato is Oct 8th-10th. I got a free $10 gift certificate in the mail. Might have to put that thing to use! grin.gif

Not sure when the Fargo one opens though.

And keep those hooks sharp!

hey everybody-
the grand opening was great!! alot of good deals if you were into hunting, clothing and boots. they also had nearly all of their ice fishing gear out already which was great because none of the other stores had much of anything out. for the first 500 people each day they gave a prize--friday was a tshirt, saturday a water bottle, and sunday was a cap. they also had plenty of prizes to register for as well--hunting and fishing trips, $100 gift cards, and more. you guys around mankato won't be disappointed! maybe when yours opens they will have some sweet deals on ice gear. also if you live around the area you should be getting that $10 gift voucher good on a minimum $10 purchase!

Here is a handy map to locate the new store in Fargo.

I will admit after running short on plastics and jigs I decided to pop in to the new store yesterday morning, for the first time. My impression was...Nice place Eh!

I found what I was looking for plus more stuff I have found completely imposable to locate in any of the other sporting stores in the area. I think their pricing on bulk plastics is by far the best I have seen, with a great and growing selection. A quick look around showed me they carry the stuff I use and back, smart folks huh? The staff was friendly and on the spot to help, without being a pest about it...(I like that). It is great to have Gander Mountain in the area and so close to my base of operations. Yup..Ya know what? I would enjoy working for an outfit like Gander Moutain.... so you can be sure....they made a very positive impression on me.

Yup...I'll be back you can count on it.

    • Whats everyone's thoughts on this new feature? https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/ais-in-the-boating-app/  
    • What you are doing is even better than what they hope to achieve with the law. I do the same thing. My minnows never see lake water while in my possession except while riding on a hook. It is not possible to transfer invasives via my minnows or minnow container unless they came from the bait shop and the result would be same either way.   This brings up a good question. Aren't minnows trapped in lakes and streams? They could contain microscopic versions of invasive species and therefore be responsible for transporting them to every lake where the minnows are used. Even those raised in rearing ponds are potential threats if the rearing ponds become infected.   Unfortunately, it is impractical (not impossible) for a CO to know that my minnows have not been in the lake. He would have to take my word for it. As a result, unless they catch me taking my aerated minnow cooler from my boat to my truck, ....  
    • I see they got Eddie & Cron back last night but now Buxton's out again. It didn't help though as they played a sloppy game & beat themselves.
    • Work related travel.  Never been to the northeast before and wanted to experience it as much as possible so I drove and took a couple extra days.   Original plans had me touring some stuff in the DC area but its been a little more difficult and expensive to wander about than I’d hoped.   Get me to some water!!!
    • Most of the fish I've caught out of the abyss were caught just above the thermocline or high in the water column (1'-15' down). A friend of mine once caught a 31" hog walleye on a top raider over 100'+ of water. That's just one of the many hogs to come into my boat that were 0'-5' under the surface in mega deep water. So, keep your lures above the kill zone on slot lakes and you'll still get bit.
    • To young to be retired whats up with all this Wandering?  Didn't you just come back from Musky fishering? 🤔
    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
    • Tried my hand at making Nashville hot chicken last night. It didn't turn out exactly like I expected but it was still good.  
    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.
