rock&reel?

6 posts in this topic

I'm curious if I got one of these last weekend at the ice fishing show? I got a stand alone model that has the open end of an S-hook attached to the rod and the closed end on a key ring attached to the stand. They were $12 or 2 for $20. ( I only got 1 as I couldn't convince my buddy to get one) They looked great to me but can't remember the name. I'll get a chance to try it out this weekend at URL and next week at LOW
FISH ON!!!!!!!

I know which one you are talking about and you do not have the Rock-n-Reel.

That's too bad, because this baby is going to be awesome on those Upper Red lake Crappies.

SOOOOOOOOO how do they work?
What is the mechanism affixing the rod to holder?

The Rod balances on a metal shaft with a half-moon cut-out.

You really do have to use it to appreciate it. Seeing it will not do it justice...although it does look very durable.

Take it on my word...if you have a portable you want the Tub/Bucket mount Rock-n-Reel. The Rock-n-Reel can easily be attached to it and folds out of the way when you're not using it.

The stand alone Rock-n-Reel is the more versatile and also folds up for easy transport. I ordered 3 more Tub mounts yesterday. I had 1 so I'll have 2 Rock-n-Reels for each of my portables. I also have the Stand Alone Rock-n-Reel for more mobile situations or when I go fishing with others.

Both types will be powerful tools in your Upper Red Lake fishing package. They will help you detect even the lightest bites.

We have 40 coming in. Sold 16 yesterday and 12 today sight unseen.

We only have 12 left as of 11pm, Thursday, 12/12/02.

You can call toll free to order:

Hey Rick -

I met you at the show on Saturday - You sent me over to Tbone to purchase the R&R's which I did qty. 3 of them - heres my question for you (since T is up on LOW today I think?) what is the best position of the rod on the R&R - horizontally level, rod tip slightly pointing up or rod tip slightly pointing down -- I can place my various rigs on R&R and put them in these different positions but I'm not sure if there is any one particular way it should be placed. Thanks!!

The lady selling the rod holder I bought at the ice fishing show was good looking and wanted to take me fishing.(She didn't say she wanted to take me fishing but I KNOW she did!) Also I was at the ice fishing show twice looking at everything( or so I thought) and didn't see anything better than what I bought? i don't remember the r&r by name, but the 2 other holders i looked at seemed inferior.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit mndnr.gov/stamps, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      It was a main lake break line that went from 18' and dropped into around 30'.  Just a sand transition into mud.   The fish we kept were loaded with small perch and crayfish.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff
