Hey Dan, check out the sponsors page, there is a costom rod-maker there. Another I like is Midwest Rod & Reel. Good luck.

I would shoot Scotty a e-mail or give him a jingle. I have both his Ice and summer rods with no complaints. He will build you whatever you would like and give it that personal touch also.

Here's his link. http://scottyscustomrods.com/

Hi Dan, Check with the guys from Midwest Rod and Reel. There rods are exceptional. I think that their rods are some of the best I've had the chance to see. They are a great company to work with, very nice owners.

Check out Lakelady Rods. They are located in Breezy Point I believe. Very nice rods but not cheap.

I had one made a couple years ago by Rod Engel. Scoot, from this site, is Rod's son. It is by far the best rod I have ever used. I would highly recommend at least giving him a call and talking with him. He is a good guy and very easy to work with and can help you get set up with what you are looking for. He is up around the Crookston area and I believe he spends some time up on LOW.

I like the Hagen's out of SD, Check Ricks Taxidery and bait. He sponsors SW Minnesota in the MN regional pages.

Get a hold of Keith Terlinden at Professional Edge Custom Rods.

He builds on Diamondback, St Croix and others.

Great craftsmanship and a very resonable price. Great guy to deal with as well

      Dang I wish deer would break their neck on my deck

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
