MOST (85%) of my tackle comes from L&M Supply here in Cloquet. I'll buy maybe 7 or 8 % at either a bait shop or Wally World.. or Gander Mt.|
L&M took the whole season but finally got the Berkley Blade Dancer in stock.. I don't ice fish but the 'Blade Dancer' might be a good jigging winter lure. I hit some nice Pike early in the season with the red/white smallest size.
The most expensive rods I've had.. I managed to break by being careless (never spend more than $45 on a rod personally)... The rod I used the most this year I paid $5.00 for at Wally World.. a 6'6" medium rod.(cant' remember the brand etc offhand.. it's out in the garage).
Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!
