Arctic Armor anyone?

12 posts in this topic

So, last night my wife wanted to go to Mankato to run some errands. Fine and dandy but I said we needed to make a pit stop in Madison Lake. grin.gif When we opened the door at Reel Fishing and Tackle, a good portion of the whole crew (Joe, Matt, and Katy) was there. Great. smirk.gif Well, my daughter took over the minnow tanks, my wife checked out the fish batter, tackle and underwater cameras and I proceeded to try on a set of Arctic Armor. Once I got the suit on, Joe said "take a walk outside for a bit and we'll wait here". blush.gif I have to say, despite never using it (yet), all of the chatter about this stuff is about as accurate as it gets. The suit is amazing and so is the price. $300.00 for a suit is darn tough to beat; well, real tough to beat because it came home with us. grin.gif We also walked out of there with a handful of #3 Salmo Chubby Darters that I've been looking for and some fish batter Joe talked my wife into. If it would have been up to my daughter, we also would have left with all of their live spearing decoys. grin.gif

Once again, folks, if you have the time, stop in and visit our South Central MN forum sponsor. Reel Fishing and Tackle is the real deal!

No, she wouldn't spend that kind of money on me for a Christmas gift. grin.gif She knows my habits. It was just another of those "jerk reflexes". smirk.gif

PDOGG,

I see you said you traded your auger in for a new one. Do they take in trades for a new auger? I have a three year old stike master that i would like to upgrade??

They would probably take that in on a trade. They were pretty fair on mine. In the past they have also let me trade in electronics.

The suit is amazing. I put it to the test this morning; I wore jeans and a sweatshirt under "the gear" and was plenty warm fishing outside hole-hopping.

We will look at trades on augers and electronics. Just bring your old one in and we'll see what we can do. Just FYI, we do not quote trades via email or over the phone.

Joe, Matt, Katy and the gang.

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
