Info on FFO in Spirit Lake IA ?

Question

rascalP

Can anyone give me some more info on FFO in Spirit Lake? Are the factory refurbished rods available year round or just seasonal? Also do they have any of the old Berkley Power baits? Don't like the new ones. I'm running out of the 4" black power grubs. Thanks for any info.

I was last there in November. They had rods all over the back of the store -- new and refurbished.

I didn't search for it, but Berkley has a website that links to the outlet store. It might be your best bet on getting info.

Power baits are everywhere in the store -- mostly the new ones.

Their website is at:
http://www.ffo-tackle.com

It seems like somebody posted a toll free no. for the store recently on a thread somewhere in fishingminnesota, but don't have that available right now.

They typically have more variety, product and run more and better specials at the store itself. For instance, it looks like they've currently running a special on the Cardinal Agenda online for $19.95 and last summer they sold them in the store for $10.00. I don't know how much reconditioned stuff they sell online either.

They have tons of Powerbait at the store for very good prices.

Bottom line - the online store is decent but if you can make to the store you'll like that better in terms of price, availability and variety.

I've been there every summer for the last 10 years and have never been disappointed.

uffdapete --

Having been there every summer for the past 10 years, I'm willing to bet you've spent a bundle -- even at reduced, bargain prices.

You've got to be a well equipped angler.

I was there on march 29, lots and lots of stuff. mostly new power baits though. I wish there were some way to get the old power worms in the plastic container though. The line strippers and hook sharpeners were 1.50$ each. lots of good deals!

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
