i just ended up with a couple of bamboo fly rods, one in a brass tube and the other one in an aluminum tube with a canvas sheath. also ended up with a bamboo rod that could be a musky rod in the two piece set up or a walleye rod with the three piece set up. the guides on the musky are pretty cool and dont drop down, the opening is straight out the end of the pole. does anyone know how a guy could get an age and a value put to the poles? not selling, just wanted to get an idea what they are worth. thanks.

I don't know if you did yet or not, but try searching for something similar on ebay.

If you are near Lake Elmo, the fly shop there (boy, can't remember the name now for some reason, but a pretty famous and good one) will look at them and give you a appraisal. I brought one in, and basically it wasn't worth much. Bob told me that in all the years he has had people bringing them in, he only saw one that was truly a very valuable rod. But you never know smile.gif and even though most may not be that expensive "find" they are still nice rods in them selves and valauable to the owner. Bob Mitchells fly shop, but it might have changed names since then.

good luck,

If you look on eBay, use the advanced search feature and have it show you all those have closed that match your items. That way you can see how much they sold for, vs what somebody is asking.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
