Fishing Tackle Garage Sale


Recommended Posts

Been going through my fishing stuff and decided there are quite a number of items that I can do without (cranks, plastics, electronics, rods, etc) so am trying to put together a Garage Sale with a bunch of guys that is only fishing tackle - any species, open water or ice. Could be a place for guys that make their own stuff to make a few sales as well.

I have a date and a place: April 18th at Cubby's Cafe & Deli in Ramsey (new business). It is located at 157th and Nowthen Blvd. They have a big parking lot they are more than willing to let us use. Will be from 8 am - 2 pm. We will have a bucket out for donations to some local charity as well.

Place is easy to find - pretty much straight shot from Hwy 10 - Sunfish Lake Blvd north to Nowthen Blvd - make a left and quick right and there it is.

Looking for guys who want to set up a table and sell stuff and wanted to let everyone know about it as well. Would like to get at least 15-20 guys or so with stuff to get rid of to make it worth visiting for others.

If you're interested in bringing a table to sell stuff, let me know. Will keep you posted on our progress. Also posting it on several websites and planning to put up roadside signs.

We have a Swap Meet every year with guys from the Duluth/Bwca forum and it a big hit. Lots of good gear and deals.

If you havent done one its fun and easy to do. We charge $10 a table and some of the proceeds go to the Cub Scouts and the rest goes to a Get Together.

Hadn't thought about charging for tables - figured putting out a bucket for a local charity would suffice and everyone is responsible for bringing their own table or whatever to put their stuff on for sale.

Sounds pretty good Daze, I don't have much to get rid of, but if I can scrounge some buddies with stuff together I'd like to do it. If nothing else, I'll have to stop buy and maybe stock up.

Great ideas! Anybody know of something like this on the East Metro? If not, I'll have to remember to hit Daze's deal.

Thanks to those that take the time to organize this great opportunity for buyers & sellers!!!!

This is a great idea! I have a bunch of muskie lures and a few rods to get rid off. If I'm not working I will be there.

Keep those cards and letters coming - I'm figuring that I will need at least 10 sellers to make it worthwhile for people to make a trip. Would love to get 20 though. Aside from the deals imagine the [PoorWordUsage] that will be swapped.....

Thanks for your support!

Another Update:

Had another chat with the owner of Cubby's Coffee and Deli and besides sponsoring the event with his parking lot he is going to have either brats or hot dogs on the grill outside with a pop for $2 and inside there is an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast for $4.99 which is his regular deal.

He is really pumped about this thing and wants this to be the "First Annual".

If you want to set up shop just respond here and I'll give you contact information.

I think it's a great idea, but Ramsey is a little too far for me. I wish someone would put one together for south of the river. Good luck Daze!

Thanks FH - we tried to find a more central location but couldn't quite pull it off. We did have an offer of a commercial building in Princeton to use so at least we did better than that...

I also think its a great idea. I have been looking for some nice used stuff for trying different things. I will try and make it up there. Thanks for putting that event together.

Just bringing this back to the top again so everyone has a shot at joining us either to buy or sell! Going to need a firm committment from guys wanting to sell stuff by late this week!

If you don't have enough yourself I know a couple guys are going together on a table...something to think about!

OT - glad you saw it - hope you can join us!

A bit of an update - I will have an area for donations to a foodshelf in Anoka that serves the area where the sale is located. Please bring either non-perishable food items or $$$ to donate if you come.

Middle of next week would be fine. Would like to get a handle on how many to expect before the weekend prior to the event so I can advertise better.

Gee Daze, too bad I moved from Ramsey to Grand Rapids. Didn't know there was any property left up that way for a cafe. I used to live just off Ramsey Blvd.

lambjm -

We were practically neighbors I'm off Sunfish Lake Blvd. The cafe is where the old Girl Scout Bldg was on Nowthen Blvd.

Daze,

I want to get a table/parking spot but have some questions. How do I get a hold of you. No email has been posted to my knowledge and the PM is no longer being used.

Thanks!

Directions from Hwy 10: Exit Hwy 10 at Sunfish Lake Blvd (Comfort Inn, Shell Station, Plants and Things are landmarks). Go north to 4-way stop. Continue straight to next 4-way stop. Go straight to next stop sign. This will be Nowthen Blvd (Cty Rd 5). Make a left then quick right. Cubby's is log cabin looking business on north side of Nowthen Blvd. We will be in parking lot.

Aside from the use of their parking lot, Cubby's is offering Hot Dogs/Brats for $2 and has an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast for $4.99 ea.

There will be a place to donate cash or canned goods to ACBC Foodshelf which serves Anoka. Ramsey, Andover and beyond. This is completely voluntary of course but it would be nice to remember those with needs as we sell off our excesses.

If you want to sell all you need to do is let me know - bring your own table(s). Contact me at [email protected] or PM me here with questions or to sign-up. It is getting to the point where I need to know who is planning to sell by the middle of next week at the latest.

Rain date is the following Saturday, April 25th. Check here if there is any question whether is is postponed for weather related issues.

Daze, let me see what I can do. I have a few things I could probably get rid of. I will have to give my aunt a call and see if I can use her table. I will have probably 3 or 4 rods, a couple reels, some tackle boxes, some lures, leader material. I will shoot you an email.

I plan to make it.

My wife thinks I need to thin out my "collectable" rod/reel collection. And I have some anchors, oar locks, kid-size life vests and stuff that needs a new home.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)

      We just returned this afternoon from 6 days on Vermilion. We arrived Saturday and enjoyed 3 fantastic days of walleye fishing. My cousin, our friend Greg, and myself fished several of our spring spots and found fish on all of them. Water temperatures were pretty much 65-67 degrees everywhere we fished. The wind was variable and made boat control a challenge at times. Bait was not an issue and we had success on crawlers(Tim), leeches(Greg), and minnows(me). If I had to pick one of those as catching the most fish, it would be crawlers. Our best day totalled 48 walleyes, 4 smallmouth, and 2 big JUMBOS. We ended up with over a hundred walleyes, 12 jumbos 11"-13", and 10 smallmouth to 18". Our biggest walleye was 24.5" and the balance went from 13"-22". There are lots of 14"-16" walleyes this year which are perfect eaters. The mayfly hatch was in full bloom in some areas but we found very few mayflies in the water column over rock reefs. We caught our fish in depths ranging from 10' to 32'. I didn't fish in any area where I could see mayflies top to bottom in the water column. Slow trolling in the .3mph to .6mph worked and we caught nothing using slip bobbers. Terminal tackle was a 3'-4' 10# flurocarbon leader, 2 lime colored beads, and a plain #6 Gamakatsu walleye hook . Snags are always an issue when fishing in and around the rocks and when the fish are biting they are acceptable. NOW, for the bad news.......Tuesday was a day I won't soon forget. The area suffered devastating torrential rainfall. Lightning was non-stop for several hours and when things settled down, flood damage was everywhere. We checked our rain guage on the side of the cabin and we got 7 3/4 " in a little over 4 hours! Breezy Point road washed out, Mud Creek road washed out as did several others in the area. Cooke business area was completely covered with flood water. I would consider it a disaster area and should be declared as such. We couldn't find a dock anywhere that wasn't covered with water. People were stranded behind flood covered and washed out roads. Dock decking, limbs and such were floating everywhere in the big water. My group sends our prayers to the people of that beautiful country that lost their businesses, homes, and suffered damage to their lake properties. The people of that north country are resilient and we have confidence that they will recover. We stayed our final 3 days but didn't fish at all Tuesday. Our last 2 days showed the effects of the storm. Water temps dropped to 64 degrees and our premo fishing became 10 walleye days. We did manage to catch a dozen really nice jumbos. We plan on returning in September and we pray the area will have returned to normal by then. I haven't figured out how to transfer photos from my phone to my computer yet so no pictures at this time. Good Fishing and God be with you. MarkB

      Word is that the river has peaked and therefore the town can start the process of recovering sooner.
    • smurfy
      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.
