St. Croix Rod - Tip replacement needed

7 posts in this topic

Good Evening everyone, this weekend I somehow lost the middle part of my guide that the line rides on. It's the guide that is at the tip of the rod. I am looking for the best person for the most reasonable price to replace the tip on my St. Croix rod.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

I've had Thorne Bros. do a couple of mine. Or else find a custom rod builder near you.

It's pretty easy you could do it yourself.

Pretty easy to do yourself. Most bait shops sell kits to replace the tip top. The only problem with doing that is that your tip may not fit that well.

Give St. Croix a call and they will send you out the exact same tip with glue. All you need is a cig. lighter. Very easy. They might not even charge you for it.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
