Great deals!

Question

Guest

If you folks are traveling I-90 or anywhere else in southwestern Minnesota, take a side trip to Spirit Lake, Iowa. I was there a couple weeks ago and left some $$ in the outlet store across the street from Pure Fishing.

Pure Fishing is the new corp. name for the conglomerate of Berkley, Fenwick, Mitchell, Coleman, Abu Garcia, etc. They have an outlet shop across from their corp hdqtrs and it is filled with super deals -- many are factory seconds, but like brand new. Some reconditioned stuff, but worth it. I have been there four different times and would not miss it if in the area.

Good heads-up Clayton.
It is a great place to get good quality stuff at really low prices. They have an entire wall of remanufactured rods, most of them sell for $7-$12. I picked up a $150 rod 2 years ago for $11! All that was wrong was the top 3 inches had been broke off but a new tip had been put on.
They also sell Power worms, grubs, creatures and line in bulk and they have tons of remanufactured reels too.
It's a good thing it is quite a drive for me or I'd be BROKE!!!

Among other things, I picked up an Abu 5600C baitcaster for $22. And, they had some of the older Northern Lite ice rods with baitcaster seats for $7. I've looked for these for 2 years.

I like to fish pike thru the ice with short rods and baitcasters rather than the hand-over-hand tip up routine.

If you go to the Berkley web site and look for the FFO Fisherman's Factory Outlet store banner you can see there web site listing the surplus and discontinued stock.

I believe this may have been where you were?

I buy a lot of gear from them and be sure to check on bulk mono line too, man is that ever reasonable!

Like a pound of 10# Berkley XT for $3, is that cheap enough for you? I buy 10 to 15 pounds of line a season from them and it is as good as the Berkley you get in the store if not better.

I would post a link but that wouldn't last too long. "ZAP" "POOF"

Your are quite right Eddy -- That is their website. I get Whiplash in bulk from them, 'cause it is almost impossible for me to find it locally or elsewhere.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.
