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 Just FYI, we do not quote trades via email or over the phone.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 was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
