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.

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.

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff
