What’s your rod box. I grabbed a Flambeau today to upgrade since a good buddy made me a 36 inch ice rod. I added foam to the bottom and took out the dividers and it looks like it will work dandy. Got them all in and some boxes for different plastics.  Won’t know till it warms up!  All snug when I close it up.

They are like kids and always want to go with me so I bring them all. Lol. I usually just bring 4. This is just to show that they will fit for summer storage.  Although one is so long it will probably end up in the kayak for vertical fishing gills under me. 😉

I only need one slug when after the big bucks. Gills and crappies are much fussier at times. 😂😂🦌🐟

I use that same box, on year number 3 with it and its a beast. I have no complaints or issues with it.  It appears to be well made and has handled abuse well. 

 

A little on the large size but keeps a lot of stuff organized and protected.

i run an otter box and have not had a rod break since I bought it.  Prior to that I seemed to break a rod tip once a year.  I have 6 combos laced up and ready to fish in the otter box.  a little big but I ain't complaining.  Nice not to have to break down my reels.

Use the striker bag, the big red and black one. Had it for 3-4 years now, carries both walleye and panfish rods. Trouble is, put some much stuff in it must weight 40lbs.

I resign and works much better for more rods. Be the bozo Tom. 😂 I can easily take 7 combos. Use the foam dividers with inlines and 4 works fair. I prefer them laying down vs hanging.

Eagle Claw version or your, which sucks compared to the aluminum shotgun case I found at a garage sale for 5 bucks and pimped out. At work so can't show and tell....

Love the humor, helps these long days go by 😆 😂😂😂

      I went out to Medicine lake yesterday and there were dead panfish discarded all over the place. I don't know who or why but it was such a waste, plus one little sunny was obviously cut up as bait... And then I found a huge PILE of about 20 fish behind a building. There are signs posted and reminders everywhere, only 5 panfish/crappies per person. This looked deliberate, like a middle finger to authority.
      I was furious and now I'm just sad. I took pictures and I want to do something about it but I have no idea what. 😩

      For those of you planning on a trip to the egg taking station on the Pine River forget it till next year.   Due to the covid regs.  there will be no visitors allowed this year. Hope they are having a good run.  Rayguy

      Hey all! Tomorrow (Apr 3rd) I'm taking some friends out to do some fishing. We usually target rivers, and live around the metro, but I'm willing to drive a ways to find good spots. No boat, so this would be shore fishing.
      We aren't after anything specific but would be nice to get something to fry up later! Which of course means targeting legal fish like carp, suckers, cats, panfish, etc.

      I heard a few lakes are starting to have ice moving and piling up in this two day wind storm.  Folks could end up with some shore line damage?  😬

      Looking to set up my new Alumacraft Trophy boat.  Anyone have experience with Alumatrac?  Stuff available from Alumacraft is plastic and looks weak and the options are quite limited.  Stuff from other makers I have seen (Brocraft, Traxstech, Depth Raider, Colliflower) is metal and a number of reviews say they don't fit or scratch badly.  Seems the tolerance on this track may not be very tight.  Colliflower states they have a top adjustment to account for the poor tolerance but their options are limited.  Looking at all options including rod holders, downrigger holders, and other gadgets.  Trying to decide whether to buy for the track or just mount directly to the gunwale.  Any help is appreciated.

      I figured I would just shoot this out, since I drive by it every day to work.  
       
      The access in Cold Spring was basically open to use this morning.  Yesterday there still was ice at the ramp, and this morning it was all gone.  I'm sure some guys are itching to get their boats out, and looks like a nice weekend to maybe do so. 
       
      I might try and get out Saturday if it stays dry.  I never got a chance to do some data logging with my big motor last fall.  It seems to be running a bit rich, and I want to play with the fuel tables/injectors a bit.  Looks like a great day for that.

      Last summer while doing a surgery recovery, i got into watch the canal harbor cams of Duluth. Not sure what is going on but at night there has been several people dropping what could be nets or a trap over the side of the wall.  Would like to know if these guys are catching smelt or bait?

      I probably won’t turkey hunt this spring - working way too much!  This morning before heading out I had multiple birds gobbling from the area I got mine last year. Probably would’ve been an easy score.

      Hey all, just moved back to MN where I grew up after living in the PNW for a long while. I became addicted to fishing rivers and streams out there and have started to check out the offerings in the NW section of the state as of yesterday’s opener. Wondering if anyone has experience in this area and can give me some pointers or just tell me if I’m wasting my time since that’s what I’m wondering right now since I didn’t find any signs of fish. I’m using a spinning rod with Mepp’s and Panther Martin style spinners and went through a bunch of color combos. I started yesterday morning at the Clearwater River in western Beltrami County essentially on the border with Clearwater County where the state has some land and a pretty lengthy easement. Probably a well known area. Beautiful area to walk through. Found multiple holes, but yeah no fish at all. I waded for a bit and decided to leave. I went south since I live closer to Moorhead and stopped at Felton Creek. I’ve read a DNR study about this creek having a decreasing population of fish, but it’s still considered a trout stream although not “designated”. I understand the channelization of creeks in this region ruined fish habitat over the last 100 years, but still find some DNR material as of the last 5 years that reference Felton Creek as a spot for trout. Walked the stream for a bit before I left and headed to Lawndale Creek south of Barnesville. I waded through the AMA on the Atherton WMA expecting to find some brook trout since the DNR has stocked it as of at least 2017. Nothing through the entire stretch besides frogs and minnows. Are there actually fish in these places? The Clearwater and Lawndale are designated trout streams. The Clearwater is stocked annually and Lawndale is supposed to have wild brook trout. Anyone have any experience in these spots? Should’ve just drove down MN200 & 71 to the obvious spots in Becker/Hubbard?

      As of April 15, the Canadian side of rainy lake, from the causeway up to devils cascade, is ice free. I believe that is the earliest ice out. Water is coming up as we had 2 1/2” of rain last week along with 1/2” of snow.
