    You all have any suggestions on telescopic fishing poles? Want to get a couple for my son and I so we can hike and fish. Thanks.

    Well I spent all of my $400 on the cabelas gift card. Now all I have to do is wait for the big sports show in Minneapolis to stock up on the jigs I need for Mille Lacs.

    We kept 7 of 10 that we caught. A quick morning of fishing before hockey practice. All caught in 90 minutes.

    I know the feeling of trying to find something that was deadly on fish that is no longer being made.

    Marathon made "Rattlesnake" spoons. They are deadly on German Brown trout. I see them on ebay from time to time.

    God, some people think that by putting "vintage" in front of the item, it is magically worth 25 clams.
