Think its campmor, ordered a pair of Native glasses that were originally $90 for half that. Very happy with my purchase, best pair of glasses I've owned. They have quite a few, just have to watch out for the sizes, many of them are the small or xxlarge size, I guess with expensive glasses are actually sized, never knew that before researching on that buy.

Costco has a variety of name brand sunglasses at good prices. They also sell their own brand polarized sunglasses for like 25 to 30 dollars. (don't remember exact price). I like mine fine. Also the Maui Jims I bought there.

You want something comfortable that work well, or something cool? cool costs more. Actually the ones I bought from a kiosk in the mall are ok.

All I ask is that you dudes carefully select these glasses. I've been wearing polarized lenses for a long time and I simply want it understood there are polarized glasses and then there are POLARIZED glasses. Wear the the "pretend" ones on the tarpon or bonefish flats or standing in stern of a sportfisher watching baits bouncing in the sunshine and you'll learn the difference.

Now, ya'll carry on. smile

I suppose one could check the quality of the polarization by taking two pairs and look at a light through two lenses. Rotate one lens and see how dark the light gets when they are oriented at 90 degrees.

In my opinion the amount of hype in the sunglass world is exceeded only by that in the audio cable world.

How does one tell Polarized from POLARIZED!!!!!?

I agree there is a lot of hype. $200 sunglass guys think everything is junk.

Check out suncloud. They have them around the metro. Lifetime warranty and in your price range.

Keep an eye on steepandcheap. They run many deeply discounted deals each day for a short time and have quality sunglasses frequently.

Try on a few pair at the store until you find a brand and style you like best, than go home and find it on Amazon for probably half price. I bought a pair of Bolle's for around $55 that I have been very happy with.

I don't doubt there are difference between polarized lenses and POLARIZED lenses, but the biggest difference between a mid-range pair compared to a $20 pair are the frames. I can wear the Bolle's for hours and stay comfortable. The cheaper pairs always pinch or dig-in somewhere - some to the point you can't stand to wear them any longer.

One of the things my dermatologist asked me when I went in to get a mole checked out is "Do you wear good sunglasses?" She said there is a difference in eye protection between cheap polarized sunglasses and good ones. Just passing along what my doc said. I have some Native's and they were $150 so not top end but I sure do like the difference in quality over the $20 pairs I used to buy. I find I take much better care of these than I did with cheap sunglasses and they will probably be cheaper in the long run than buying 1 or 2 new pair of cheapos a year.

SpiderWire Sunglasses for $13.47 a pair. I have had great luck with them. I use to get them at Walmart but havent seen them there lately.

Yes I go to Walmart so feel free to shoot me on site...

grin

So for 14 bucks it may and IMO would be worth a shot to you.

Hey, Oakley is one of my favorite brands, but now many suppliers of wholesale sunglasses are accessible on the Internet selling sunglasses in bulk.

      Awesome I like the idea of coustom rods to but the price of them are really insane to me. Almost pulled the trigger last year on a TUCR but $120 seemed crazy to spend on just an ice rod The couple reviews on line Are good. I may cheak it out in stores and if it seems decent I make give it a whirl 
    • monstermoose78
      I use a snitch and it works well. I want to upgrade to a custom rod, but have save a few bucks yet.
    • monstermoose78
      I am picky too no little bucks, in camp but I will harvest a doe or fawn and let little bucks walk.

      Any of you have or have used the one 3 snitch rod? I have a CGI in-line I have on a  Shakespeare noodle rod but don’t like it so that reel will get put on a new rod. I bought a tickle stick last year and paired it with a Decent and really enjoyed it. Looks like the snitch rod is $30-$40. So a little cheaper than the tickle stick Also looking at the beaver dam glass noodle if the snitch isn’t the best.

      COLD! And too windy for the lake. We had limited success on the river...as usual. If the weather allows, I would head to the lake and not look back. My personal opinion is that the fall river fishing is way over rated. Maybe at times its gets hot, but never when I am there. Hundreds of boats out there packed into the usual places all doing the same thing we were.....freezing our butts off!  Also, not a whole lot of shiners this year yet.

      I’m torn on the bonus deer tag.  Still don’t know if I’ll have one in my pocket for the hunt.  With the few memories I have of the glory days, yes, it would be nice to high numbers of deer again.  But really, weren’t there getting to be too many?   The peak population and two deer limit days collided with the two consecutive bad winters that seemed to trash the population of the whole county.  It’s back on the upswing though.  Hard for me to say what damage us bow hunters in Ripley can do by harvesting a few more does and fawns than wouldn’t otherwise be taken with a one deer limit.   I haven’t harvested a camp deer yet either.  Being picky when the numbers were high and then hunting the low numbers haven’t led to success.  But I’m hooked on it anyway.

      I agree...recruiting young people is the key but keep in mind these millennials tend to be more on the "no limit"  catch and release only side of the argument and you couple that with the fact that our DNR is recruiting these same millennials to work for them....so it makes it harder to sway both sides of the same fence.  IMO they should cut all limits of all species in half state-wide immediately, including all boundary lakes/rivers like LOW and see what the fish population looks like in 10 yrs...this includes keeping any local slot limits in place plus opening Mille Lacs back up to a reasonable keep. Half a limit is plenty to keep for those of us who enjoy a fish fry now and then IMO.

      Dates have been set for recreational netting for whitefish and tullibee (cisco) on Shagawa, Bear Island and Ojibway lakes in the Tower fisheries work area, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. These lakes are Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperatures, and are opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. Schedule I Lakes (48 hour notice) Shagawa, open to netting Thursday, Nov. 1  through Sunday, Nov. 25, 2018  (minimum 3.5 inch mesh size). Bear Island & Ojibway lakes, open to netting Saturday, Nov. 17 through Sunday, Dec. 16, 2018 (minimum 1.75 inch mesh size). Shagawa Lake is designated as infested with spiny waterflea so netters are encouraged to review rules that help prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. About 700 people obtain special permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. Fishing regulations require that netters purchase both a whitefish netting license and angling license. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures, fish abundance and vulnerability of game fish. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning.  Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Find information about sport netting by lake, minimum mesh sizes, and fishing regulations at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/whitefish-tullibee.pdf or contact the DNR’s Tower area office at 650 Highway 169, Tower, MN 55790, or call 218-300-7802. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      On the main basin... Many strong reports from the lake.  Mixed schools of fish from 14-28' along south shore from Lighthouse Gap to Rocky Point.  Most anchored up and jigging with frozen shiners.  Gold or gold mixed with other colors working well.   The key is finding the fish.  Once found, fish tend to cooperate nicely.     On the Rainy River... Strong walleye activity continues.  Jig and frozen shiners continue to be the go-to method with some anglers also trolling crankbaits.  Gold, orange and yellow for jigs.  As waves of walleyes move through, reports change daily up and down river.  Be mobile, move around if a spot isn't producing.  A lot of good reports in 8-14'.  Some big walleyes caught over the weekend. Sturgeon continue to have the feed bag on.  The sturgeon catch and release season goes through April 23, 2019.       Up at the NW Angle... Fishing continues to be really really good.  Limits of walleyes being caught in 14 - 25'.  Jigging still producing.  Look for areas of current in neck down areas and outside of bays.  Fall crappie bite in on.  Muskie trollers still boating and releasing good numbers of fish.  The best fall fishing is yet to come, but only for the hearty!  Dress warm and hang on.
