New Rod

Recommended Posts

Guest

Ok fellas... got a 2 part question.
FIRST...... never have had the time or the inclination to be a big enough ice fisherman to invest in some ice fishing equipment (spend to much on the non-hard water fishing and hunting gear). But I decided that since I got a couple of ultra light reels layin around and decide it was high time to set them up fopr something. So where is the best palce to get a decent ice fishing rod, and what kind/brand is the best? I got jigs and the assorted, just need an auger otherwise.
Second question is, lookin through the Cabelas catalog and assorted other catalogs and decided I need to put a rod on my X-MAS list.... I've been castin w/ a couple of 6'6" Fenwicks (a pair of Eagle GT's and an HMX) love em.... love the length... any other poles you fellas suggest?

I stopped by the Red Barn booth over the Grandstand at the State Fair and spent a few minutes looking them over. Very nice workmanship - the wooden handles are a nifty idea. They build on a variety of blanks, so you can get a true "custom" rod.

I have used the red barn also. I got it from last year ice show. It has great sensitivity to it and has the back bone to be used for walleyes. I have used it to catch crappies and pike. good all around rod. My favorite. When I let other people use my rods this is one I keep to myself.

Hey guys, I picked up the new Black Diamond Signature Series Red Barn Ice Fishing stick at the Ice fishing show this past weekend. Frank's only making 100 of them. My wife say's Merry Christmas to me every year with a new Red Barn Stick. I've also treated myself to a couple of these sticks. There my favorites but I also have lots of other sticks.
Scupper...

    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
    • Not unlike most years.....
