HGTV looking for ice fishermen!

1 post in this topic

My name is Susan Michaelson, associate segment producer for a new television show for the Home and Garden Television Network (HGTV.)

Our show features people who are returning home for some event that is important to them.

My supervising producer is interested in doing a story about someone going home to go ice fishing.

I saw your HSOforum, and thought you may be able to point me toward someone who might fit.

I'm looking for someone who:
has a great personality
Lives in a state other than their home state currently
Grew up ice fishing
loves their hometown
still has a lot of connections in their hometown (family, friends,
memories...)
would find the experience of being on TV fun
is planning on going to an ice fishing competition that takes place in
their hometown.

I realize this is a tall order--an that's why I need your help! Are you the subject I'm looking for? Do you know of anyone who is?

I can genuinely say the show is a fun experience for the participant. So far, we have taped 30 episodes, and everyone has had a great time featuring their hometown and taking a look at their life in this way.

We have a small approval process, but if approved, the show can pay for the airfare of the person home and the edited copy of the show is a fantastic keepsake of the journey home.

Please call me if you'd like to hear more or think you might have a possible candidate! I'd love to feature ICE FISHING!

Thanks for your time.

Sincerely,


Susan Michaelson
Associate Segment Producer

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
