Trails End in Fridley

Recommended Posts

Trails End has a few portable ice-fishing shacks for sale. Some are marked down really nice. The one that I want, I can't afford, nor do I have room to store it. But it could be just what some of you are looking for! It's on Hwy 65, just north of Friendly Cheverolet.

Fishing Tackle Outlet in Brooklyn Park also has some reduced prices on fish houses and marcums and vexilars. They also have the new VS 460 and 560 in stock.

I really like the Fishing Tackle Outlet. It's a smaller shop but the guys working there know their stuff. A large variety of tackle, accessories, components as well as motors from time to time and other pieces of fishing equipment. A very friendly atmosphere.

Good Fishin,

Matt Johnson

Stopped in last night. They still had a couple shacks but not exactly what I was looking for. I did talk to the guy there for a while though. He was EXTREMELY helpful. I'll be sure to stop in the next time I'm up that way.

I think I've been at that tackle outlet a few times. Great variety. Great prices. If they dont have it they can probably order it. Very knowledgable people

I like the store too, I usually dont find what I am exactly looking for, but I always find a new reel, spoons, etc. I guess its a win-win.

This is really turning into a fishing tackle outlet thread, but I stopped in there today (for the first time) and talked with Joe for about 45 min. What a helpful guy. He said they would match any price on fish houses in the metro. He also can get virtually every brand out there. I am will purchase my next fish house from him and probably most of my gear there too.

    • A good bottle of bourbon or case of beer might make a difference.....
    • Great feedback.  I guess I will go with the single stage.  Just wish I had a solution for keeping the plow driver from pushing our entire culdesac's snow onto my lawn.
    • I have a Gen1 Helix 5 and love it on the ice, but also use it on my kayak. If I were to do it over again I would have got the 7" or bigger. Its not so much an issue on the ice but DI/SI is hard  to fully utilize on a 5" screen.
    • I always use 6lb mono for jigging rods and And 8lb mono on deadsticks. No leaders for me I’ve debated it but it doesn’t really seem to make a difference if you have one or not. 
    • My thinking is the grease would make up for the gap, but wasn't sure if it'll still have too much play. Yet, don't want it too tight where it gets stuck.
    • I think the tube is DOM 1/2" thick. Was afraid 1/4" too thin and cannot find any other tube that would fit another solid rod inside. Don't want to get something I have to get machined $$$... At least with arm I can pull out and have another made if not good. Not sure how to make the grooves with hand tools?
    • I live in the burbs  on a cul-de-sac and the plow always leaves a huge pile at the end of my driveway. I bought a single stage Toro, and while I don't have a 2-stage to compare it against, I would definitely buy a single stage again. It's plenty powerful enough to handle the deepest, heaviest snow that accumulates on the driveway. When it comes to the pile at the end of the driveway, you just have to work your way though it by backing out and pushing into it again. Of course, if you're out of town or something and the pile at the end of the driveway freezes you might need to get out a shovel. But for most snowfalls I can clean the driveway in a matter of minutes - you almost have to run behind the thing to keep up with it.
    • Not a fan of leaders, far fewer bites with them on.   I typically run 4 or 6 lb test.  I do run 8 lb in water less than 8-10 ft.  I do this because thr fight is usually off to the sides of the hole, and the line contacts the ice edge at sharper angles.    
    • Just ordered the 16 piece jig kit yesterday. I am excited to get them and get out on the ice as soon as it is safe!
    • Hey,   What lb test line should I be using for Walleyes?  I've been using 4 lb but that seems a little light and I don't want to lose the big one, but don't want to get too heavy either.  Also, what's your input on using a leader?  I haven't but just wondering if I am missing something.
