I'm curious if I got one of these last weekend at the ice fishing show? I got a stand alone model that has the open end of an S-hook attached to the rod and the closed end on a key ring attached to the stand. They were $12 or 2 for $20. ( I only got 1 as I couldn't convince my buddy to get one) They looked great to me but can't remember the name. I'll get a chance to try it out this weekend at URL and next week at LOW
FISH ON!!!!!!!

I know which one you are talking about and you do not have the Rock-n-Reel.

That's too bad, because this baby is going to be awesome on those Upper Red lake Crappies.

Click here if you'd like more info or to ask questions.

SOOOOOOOOO how do they work?
What is the mechanism affixing the rod to holder?

The Rod balances on a metal shaft with a half-moon cut-out.

You really do have to use it to appreciate it. Seeing it will not do it justice...although it does look very durable.

Take it on my word...if you have a portable you want the Tub/Bucket mount Rock-n-Reel. The Rock-n-Reel can easily be attached to it and folds out of the way when you're not using it.

The stand alone Rock-n-Reel is the more versatile and also folds up for easy transport. I ordered 3 more Tub mounts yesterday. I had 1 so I'll have 2 Rock-n-Reels for each of my portables. I also have the Stand Alone Rock-n-Reel for more mobile situations or when I go fishing with others.

Both types will be powerful tools in your Upper Red Lake fishing package. They will help you detect even the lightest bites.

We have 40 coming in. Sold 16 yesterday and 12 today sight unseen.

We only have 12 left as of 11pm, Thursday, 12/12/02.

Hey Rick -

I met you at the show on Saturday - You sent me over to Tbone to purchase the R&R's which I did qty. 3 of them - heres my question for you (since T is up on LOW today I think?) what is the best position of the rod on the R&R - horizontally level, rod tip slightly pointing up or rod tip slightly pointing down -- I can place my various rigs on R&R and put them in these different positions but I'm not sure if there is any one particular way it should be placed. Thanks!!

The lady selling the rod holder I bought at the ice fishing show was good looking and wanted to take me fishing.(She didn't say she wanted to take me fishing but I KNOW she did!) Also I was at the ice fishing show twice looking at everything( or so I thought) and didn't see anything better than what I bought? i don't remember the r&r by name, but the 2 other holders i looked at seemed inferior.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..
