Reed's Sporting Goodings in Garrison?

17 posts in this topic

I heard a rumor going around about Reed's setting up shop in Garrison or Onamia this spring?

Anybody else heard that?

South end of Mille Lacs, I believe somewhere right by the turn that you take if you are going to Isle.

I have heard, but only heard, they are taking over Moleens Bait at the intersection of 169 and 47. I believe it is only going to be a tackle shop, no guns.

Good to know. Thanks. They should do okay there. That will be a pain for traffic though. Should be interesting.

construstion has been underway for over a week now. they were looking at the meleen's site, but that fell through as they could not get all the variances that tey needed to build what they wanted. i was at the variance meeting that night as my neighbor had applied for a variance that i needed questions answered. the site that they ended up buying was the lot between the DQ and the used car lot just south of meleen's. word is, they want to be open by the fishing opener. at this point, they might make it, they worked last weekend...........tom fellegy

Nice to have another outdoor store option. At leaset it's not another "Super Store" sending our hard earned money out of state. Good luck and don't forget about the retailers who have been around for years.

Are they going to have bait too? I like stopping at Lundeen's but parking can get tight there.

Drove by there on Sunday and was wondering what that was.

Last i had heard was the site of Lundeens. In fact when i was in lundeens in December for bait, they told me they were only open until the end of February. Wonder what the competition will do to the existing businesses?

I agree. I love the location, but traffic will certainly be an issue. I've seen the aftermath of too many serious accidents in that area.

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
