You gotta love it when you go to some kind of tackle outfitter just to compare prices and what not, and end up spending a lot of money on new stuff? For example, i went to Gander Mtn in Lakeville yesterday just wanted to check out some tip ups, ended up spending like 40dollars on new jigs and stuff for my poles. It seems like i do this EVERY time i go somewhere, but the more tackle the merrier =). Anybody ever walk in with no intentions and walk out with an auger? some guys standing by me did. I noticed gander is really starting to dwindle down their winter supply, i seen a lot of summer stuff moving back into the winter area?

Had to get that 48" drift sock, oh and that jig looks good.....

There is a reason I am only allowed to go to Gander once a month! My wife even cleans out my walet before I go! The only thing I'm allowed to walk into that store with are my drivers liscense and whatever cash is in my walet, no credit cards!

I love that woman...

BigGrassBass -

That just means you have to hit the atm before you tell your wife you are going to gander. Take out some cash and stash it in your pocket, shoe, underwear (we know she won't check there), whatever works. It is hard for me cause Gander is between the park and ride and my house. Twice weekly I stop in.

Has anyone have to sit and watch while your better half spends hours looking at stuff she does not want to buy? You ask, " can we go now", and she says, "in a minute I am not done yet". But, when we go to a Gander or a Fleet we are not even there to get our feet wet and they say , "Lets Go". Still a little confused on that one.

You just have to send her the other way at fleet farm...they have "ladies" stuff there too. Maybe not the boutique quite stuff, but it should keep them busy for a couple of minutes...now Gander, that's a different story. grin.gif

I'm still trying to win points back with the mrs. after my vexilar/ice armor suit/buddy heater purchases this winter. Of course my goal was to buy a few jigs on each occasion, I got them too of course. grin.gif

Last time I was in Fleet Farm, I was looking at a $250 flip over. The wife didn't like the space or the construction and made me upgrade to the Fishtrap X2. Then she bought the travel cover. Then she proceeded to outfit herself with that women's Carhaart line of goods. We might be a dangerous combination. There are worse problems to have I guess.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
