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

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!
