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!

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 Just FYI, we do not quote trades via email or over the phone.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.

      Was on Skogman last night. Could not get anything of size to bite. 3 " sunnies and 6" crappies this time. The vex was lit up most of the time with lookers.  Last year did Ok with bigger crappies and sunnies. Middle of the week - not to much activity - nice weather- was hoping for better results. Oh well - that's fishing. Good Luck

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.
