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.

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.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
