      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Fishing rod warranty

Question

cray

I just bought a new St. Croix rod and actually read the warranty and registered the rod. The warranty says if the rod becomes damaged they will inspect it for $20.If it is covered they will relace or repair it. If it is not, they will repair it for a fee. Has anyone had any experience with this? I can't help but wonder if this would be a waist of time and money.

I've sent a few back to St Croix in my days and have never had an issue. Actually, I've had a replacement at my door within about 10 days every time, 10 from me sending it to the new one arriving.

Definitely worth doing!

When I bought my St. Croix, I was told by the guy at gander that if anything happens to it, bring it back in for an exchange, no questions asked. No receipt necessary. Is this still the case?

That goes against everything I have heard and experienced, St Croix policy is supposed to be everything goes thru them. I had a return after Xmas last year, tags still on it, and it took a manager approval, etc. to do a simple return.

Gander Series rods, Shinamos, they will do the over the counter, but not Croix rods per the manufacturer policy.

I bought a life time warrenty fenwick rod from Joe's and if you hold on to your Joe's reciept, they will send it in for you free of charge (avoid the $20 fee). It is my understanding that is true for their St. Croix's and Shimono's.

I had a St Croix Avid that I sent in to get replaced and they called and asked if I would like to upgrade to a Legend for around $50.00(not sure on the exact amount but close)I said sure and got a brand spanking new Legend grin.gif

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
