Decent deals... I know Cabelas has Door buster deals going both days... I think both Shimano(whom I work for) and Quantum(whom Wayne works for) has pretty nice mail in rebates... There are seminars both days, none by Wayne or I though.

Can you tell us what the rebates are going to be? I'd hate to drive out there for a 5 buck rebate when it will cost me 12 dollars in gas not counting lunch.

I see they have 25% off all Rapala cranks. I wonder if Rodgers has the Subwalk yet??? I was there a couple weeks ago and they didnt.

I saw rebates for three reels (Curado, Citica, Cruxis) but I didn't see anything on their spinning reels or rods, am I missing it or is this just for these three reels?

Rebates are just for the baitcaster... Curado, Citica, Cruxis... and is listed on the shimano web page as you said... Cabelas usually has other instore sales as well.. but they dont tell me... must be secret. LOL

I totally understand the gas thing.. But if you do get there, please introduce yourself... Love to meet FM members!

OK, I'll introduce myself (again) but this time you have to remember me. grin.gif I was probably going to go there after the Musky expo anyways, providing I have any money left.

Not to be too off topic, but that is such a sweet deal on the Curados with the $50 rebate. How long is it good through, I don't think I can make it this weekend?

There's an Accurist and a $30 rebate that'll fit on my new jigging rod with my name on it. Might have to make the pilgrimage to Rogers this weekend.

I made it in and out of the store before 9 am. It was already starting to get busy. I could bet by 11 am or noon it was pretty nuts in there.

I was at the Owatonna store this AM to get a Sierra fly rod. SOLD-OUT! The sellsmen shot me a deal on a Traditional II rod. I told him I would think about it and went to get some Cotton Cordell Super Spots. SOLD-OUT! So I went back and told him I would take the deal on the Traditional II rod in #7wt. None in stock!

40 miles each way and $10 off something I didn't go there to get.

If I told my wife that "Deitz made me spend the cash', she would say,"Yea,right." Pointing the finger at you DD would seem allright,but no dice at my house.Once again,asking for forgiveness is easier than asking for... grin.gif

Depends which day... Saturday I had a white shimano polo on.. Sunday I had a denim long sleeve shirt. I was at Rogers, and there were only 2 Shimano Dudes there. I forget what Steve had on, I think he was wearing black.

Deitz, I saw you, but I was in a rush and I had no extra money to spend, so I didn't need you coaxing me into some new Citicas or Calcuttas \:\)

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
