We do try to carry a good stock of Arctic Armor suits and gloves. We were at the Ice Fishing Show in St. Paul this weekend and got cleaned out of some sizes. We should have a new order coming in on Wed. or Thurs.. We will be around all weekend. I can meet you about anytime if you give me a 10 minute heads up. We will be at the shop quite a bit this weekend thinking that we will have a lot of Christmas shoppers. We still don't have set hours, and yes we are in the remodeled carwash/laundromat building.

Thanks,

Walleyedan

Alright sounds good. I'll give you a shout or catch up with you at the store. what happened with Gull I saw it forze over before it snowed on sat. Hopefully it opened back up after that. We need at least one lake with good ice this year.

Thanks for the reply.

P.S. Are you also in the minnow buisness?

See ya this weekend. I believe Gull is frozen (barely) and snow covered. Not the most ideal situation, but there are areas in the area that are fishable. One of our guides was out the other night and bagged a couple of walls. I am not in the minnow business, still thinking about that can of worms. We are selling Arctic Armor (camo and red)suits and gloves, some custom ice rods and open water rods, some Walleyedan/Arctic Fisherman tip-ups with lasered W.D. logo and embroidered W.D. flag, some hats, t-shirts, sweatsirts and whatever else might sound like a good idea.

Dan,

Did you decide if you were planning on renting artic armor?

I haven't decided, what do you think should we? It wouldn't be too tough. Rent to own? I think it might be a good idea. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks,

Rent to own?!?! I like that idea.... On my horrible Brainerd area salary it is the only way I could afford it.

Very nice idea.

I am only asking as I will be up at the in-laws (on upper gull)over the holidays and am curious about seeing what all the "fuss" is about.

I really don't need a new set of bibs this year, but will be serious looking for next year. But would love to have some on the ice experience with the product.

So if I rent them all winter I can own them by the summer, right? Like a payment plan smile.gif

I do think the idea is a pretty good one, especially if easy to do on your end. Especially for all of us who like to try before you buy, or the group of people who go out on the ice only a couple times a year and cant justify the purchase for limited use.

If anything I would like to come and look at them sometime. It seems to be a great product.

Rent to own an Artic Armor suit! Sounds like you are talking about a car not a $300.00 clothing item. Hey Dan I will take a pair of the those used bibs the guy returned with the _____ stain on them. Am I the only one this seem odd to?

I do see the rent to own thing a little odd, but the idea of being able to use it for a full day or weekend to see how it performs sounds like a great idea. Also a good way to get the product on the lakes for other fisherman to see.

O.K., just buy a set. I was thinking you rent a set for such or such and if you are impressed, we will take the rental fee off of the retail price. That's odd? Alright then.

Dan, this may sound dumb but what do you wear underneath your AA? I can't seem to go light enough to not sweat even plowing on the wheeler. At this point I'm thinking maybe a t-shirt and jeans? Thanks Dan

You have to figure it out according to what your body says. My body says to wear jeans (no long johns) and then an Under Armor shirt, and a couple of other layers on top before the jacket goes on.

wahoo

Dan,

I read the article about the jumping in the lake to demonstrate the AA. The writer said AA wasn't waterproof!! I assume it is!?

Thanks Rock! Nice to meet you too and thanks for the good words. Enjoy your suit and don't test out the floating capability, trust me it works. Remember, it won't prevent hypothermia and it is NOT a certified PFD. But it is the ticket and for the price, you won't find a better all purpose cold weather suit. Wahoo, it is waterproof. Thanks.

I think that when they said it was not water proof they may have meant that it does not keep water out if you are in the lake. It will keep you dry as long as you are not submerged. At least that it was I assume they meant.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.  
    • Wanderer
      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
    • mrpike1973
      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
