Time to stock up on new gear

5 posts in this topic

After going a couple of years without a major tackle or gear purchase I ordered new Fenwick rods and Abu Garcia reels today.

Just figure having them sit in corner staring at me it might shorten up winter.

Most of the gear I had was simply unbreakable and never wore down to being replaced.

Was pondering getting other brands etc but when you think that some of my reels are 9 to 10 years old why would you buy or use other brands.

What brands of tackle etc. have you had that seems to last forever?

I've Got fishing equip. thats 30 years old! blush.gif It still catches a lot of fish and I just can't even think about getting anything new. I shouldn't talk about my wife that way smile.gifsmile.gif

Whoops I guess she's been catching the fish for 37 years tongue.giftongue.gifyears. Old equipment may be best.

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
