Place to get gear
« on: Oct 30, 2003, 09:47 PM »
How you guys doing?  I am new to the site.  I also am fairly new to hard water fishing.  I have been doing it now for about three years.  At any rate, i live in SE Pennsylvania.  I was wondering if anybody knew of any spots in that area that had a good selection of ice fishing equipment.  If not how about some good websites.

Howdy. Im in IA and never even been to PA. Actually, thats not true. I flew into Philly in Sept. and drove maybe 40 miles into NJ but thats it. Gander MT has a ton of great ice stuff like jigs and spoons if you have one close. For a website try Petersons Outdoors. Great prices on Marmooskas. Also, fishusa has good fishing stuff. Try, too. Reeds sporting goods has a good selection. Thorne Bros has a lot of tackle and they make the best custom rods on the market, if a bit steep. That should about do ya. Good luck.
Every plastics manufacturer claims plastics outfish livebait. So now I use livebait just for the increased challenge.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an  well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, A fishing pole in one hand, beer in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming \"WOO HOO, what a ride!

Try French Creek Outfitters in Pottstown if they are still there. Also Cabelas just opened a store in PA.
