Reeds Sports Coming to Onamia!!!

12 posts in this topic

Not sure if true or not but Just found out that Reeds Sports just bought out the "Trophy's Bar/Off Sale and the BP gas station Complex in Onamia off of Hwy-169 right before you get to the Big Pond, if this is true, I think it's a very smart move for Reeds?

I haven't talked to "my" sources yet but that would't surprise me. I know when I talked with Drew a couple months ago they stated that the Garrison/Onamie, Grand Rapids, DL, where some options they were looking at and maybe still are. So far if it's true than that would make my drive time shorter than heading north to Walker.

I'm sure we'll find out soon if thats the case.

My source is correct on this Reeds Sports will be going in over there. Reeds will be doing a Demo there in about 3-weeks at Meleens.

Yes it is true, I was told from Isom they were moving that way. Sounds like Lee will be running things down there.

Sure do miss them here in Brainerd, it was a sad day.

Oh well guess you all are sure lucky.

Peace

I have said for a long time that this spot remained a great opportunity.(I wish I had the capital $$$). Reed's will do a MUCH BETTER job merchandising inside and outside of the buildings. That business has under utilized for many years. This is a great move by Reed's. I for one can't wait. Hopefully Lundeen's and others will remain as well by differentiating and benefiting from the traffic.

      I just finished two more of these 10 rod racks ... one is spoken for but the other is available. If you were thinking of getting one, now would be a great time. I could stain it to your spec and put the final poly finish on it and ship it to you in a couple days. Let me know if you are interested.

      Just went and checked out the lake, it is a slushy mess but I can get anywhere out there on the south west side, and all I have is front wheel drive minivan lol So I'm going to do a little recon on a lake map and pick my spot for the evening bite. Any suggestions on depth for walleyes? 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Nice article. Perhaps the lake trout season should close in February right along with walleyes and pike?
    • HossFisher
      Yeah, saw that too. Rumor has it he was heading towards the river access from Horseshoe. Not smart.
    • Jim Uran
      Nice report! I hope he cleaned the fish for you, lol!
