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.

Good! I hope they do. They are a great store to shop. It will be nice to have them in my back yard.

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.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Zach that is a different zone.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
