Do you carry Slender spoons?

I'd like to get some and I always stop at your store to get minnows anyways when I get to Ely.

No Sir, we do not carry them. frown.gif

We are however, making a spoon/jig that may interest you. ooo.gif

We have been testing the action in our tanks, and they look good. smirk.gif

JustinG was in the shop yesterday and both he and I will be field testing one next weekend in Burntside. cool.gif

I'll be making another style tomorrow if I can find out where the heck I left one of the components. confused.gif

Huey, good to see you. Custom Jigs & Spins makes the Slender spoons. If you can't find any stop by the Bash, I should have one I can part with.

From the reports I'm getting, the 4 wheeler may not work.

I'm taking a test spin 7:30 in the morning with a snow machine and will let you know what I encounter.

One person found a lot of slush and 4 inches of ice on Burntside yesterday, so the fables of 10-12 inches of ice all over are just that, fables.

Another had fished Found lake off the Moose chain, same thing, 4 inches of ice and lottsa slush.

Jim, anyone who says there's 10-12 inches of ice ALL OVER Bside is, as you say, telling tales. But nor is the four inches of ice and lots of slush a universal Bside ice report, either.

I'll be testing out my tuned-up auger off Van Vac sometime tomorrow and will give an updated report just for that area.

There was 8-10 inches of strong ice in all the spots on Van Vac Bay I drilled just before we got that big Christmas dump of snow, and we'll see if it's been cold enough since the recent three-day melt to tighten up the wet snow/slush.

The sheltered bays that froze early and took lots and lots of snow just plain suck when it comes to ice/slush conditions, while many of the more open areas were better off.

But this weekend will tell. I'll not only be fishing. I'll be tooling around looking at different ice conditions, as I'm sure will be JustinG, G.O. and a bunch of other folks.

More Bside ice reports to come! grin.gif

Thanks, ST. I appreciate the info and offer. I found some smaller Slender Spoons in town here. Tried them on a stocked rainbow trout lake this morning. Looked good in the water but didn't hook anything. Nothing else did either so I can't complain.

6 more days and I get to spend a 3 day wknd fishing Burntside!

Great Outdoors, was wondering if by chance you are attending the Bash this year. My father inlaw, Don Sandstrom, say's he knows you well. If not, I will make sure to stop by either this winter or summer for certain to introduce myself. My son and I will be at the Bash. Hope to see you there. BC

Big Country,

Donny stops in the store quite often in the summer, haven't seen him since, maybe late September?????? How's he doing?

I'll be at the store the day of the Bash. Will try to shut down by 1 or 2, then run home, grab the snowmobile, then zoom over to Bash HQ for some PR work and a few beers.

Very cool. Hope to share a few with you. Don's doing great. He ocassionally goes to the cabin in the winter. My son, buddy from the cities, and myself will be staying at his place on Clear Lake for the Bash weekend. I helped him move some stuff the other day and mentioned you on this site. He said hello. Hopefully we will see you there. I will ask Mr. Foss to point you out to me. I have visited your place in the summer, so I might recognize you anyway. See ya at the Bash. BC

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
