      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.

summit viper vs goliath

Recommended Posts

DRH1175

I have been saving my money and finally have enough. Forest lake Gander has had a few all season. Then I go there the other day to buy and all the goliaths are sold out. I have $200 in gift cards so I am stuck with buying it there. Now what? They have plenty of Vipers but I am 300lbs and 6'0" and thought I would fit the goliath better. What should I do. Wait it out and hope they get one in or break down and get the viper. I am going to camp ripley next week and I really need this stand. I also asked if they are getting any more in. All they will say is we are getting more stuff in on Thursday but they don't know what?

Try calling the Gander in St. Cloud or other locations.

Ask for the manager at Forest to call around to other Ganders and track one down for you and have it transfered to the Forest location. They really should be taking care of you.

I live in Maple Grove and the running joke is if you find something in-stock to consider yourself lucky!

Start looking around to the other Ganders, I bet you will find one somewhere.

I am about the same size and I have both. I prefer the Goliath as its just that little extra width that makes it a better fit, especially when the temps drop and the clothing starts getting a bit thicker / heavier.

Either way, it will fit you OK, its just that the Goliath is a bit more comfortable.

I will ask that. I may even ask if I can have the one hanging on the display. Gander is quite interesting. They have a goliath hanging on the display in forest lake. Yet have none for sale. They have loads of vipers and have none hanging. I talked to a guy on sunday. He came for a harness that was on sale in the add. And they only had 2 in the store and only the small 150lb models. Why would you have a sale item in the add and not have any in stalk. Maybe it is just me but If I was going to have a big sale on a certain item I would at the bare minumum actually have some to sell.

I don't mean to vent but I am quite upset right now for other reasons. I would hope that at the bare min. They could look around and have one shipped for me.

For safety and laibility reasons on their end they likely won't sell a display stand. Put the pressure on them to take care of you, the right manager should.

Thqnks,

I found one at the new blaine store and they gave me a 10% discount for all of my trouble. Gander mt screwed up a gift card that I bought and that is why they gave me a discount. Anyways I Have to comend the managers at both the Blaine and Forest lake stores. They did a lot to keep me a happy customer.

      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.
