No, I don't think so.

This mgiht be good for the guys at Lindy ($$$$), but I think it will hurt us fishermen down the road.

Hopefully those southern guys will know how to make Lindy Rigs the right way.

Most everyone I know makes their own riggs now it's just the rest of the line, fuzzy grubs and all the jigs. The spinner rigs will they remain the same? Now this stuff is going to be made by guys used to fishing with 20# test. Techni-glo will it be the same? who knows. I never thought of Pradco as a high end tackle manufacturer. but I could be wrong due to expansion on thier part.

From my friends at Lindy. The Pradco folks like what Lindy does and are planning to keep it the way it is operated. And keep it in Brainerd........I guess time will tell but they liked the product line enough to buy the company so that must mean they like the production.

If it all stays here we can probably expect the same tackle.

PRADCO is a quality company that has done a lot of good stuff with some of their brands in recent years. Yum and Booyah have really come around as premier companies and Silver Thread fishing line is, in my opinion, the best flourocarbon line you can find.

Lindy used to be a great company but in the last few years it seems as if they haven't had many very good ideas. They picked up Beckman nets and then didn't do much with it. They have a world of potential and hopefully they will be able to get rolling better with a big-brother bankrolling them.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
