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

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
