I put in my order for a rod with your dad at the end of last week. It is going to be for my dad and I can't wait to see the look on his face. I ended up getting the St. Croix Legend Elite blank and the zirconia guides. It should be a pretty sharp looking rod when he gets done with it. Thanks for putting me in contact with your dad. From the way he talked, he was hammering the fish up there on the big lake. Thanks again.

Glad you got ahold of him. Judging by your description, you didn't screw around- you got your dad a kick butt rod! He must have been as good to you over the years as my dad has been to me. That rod will be one sexy looking rig with those guides and that blank. I'm sure you'll be happy, but probably not as happy as your dad!
Judging by their reports, it's been the proverbial "molly-hocking" up North. They catching lots of fish and lots of nice fish. I'm heading up on Thursday night and according to my calculations, fishing should take a turn for the worse about Friday morning at about 6:00 a.m. They don't call me "Black Cloud" for nothin'.
I hope you're really happy with the rod. If you are, report back in here and let my dad know you were happy with the finished product.

huntnfish,

I spoke to my dad last night and it sounds like he's heading home today. He figures he can have your rod done by the time I go back through Fisher on Sun. If it works out, I'll grab the rod and get it to you early next week. How's that for service!?!

That sounds great. I'm not really in any kind of a hurry to get it, as long as it is before the end of the summer. Let me know if you do get a chance to pick it up. Thanks.

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.
