Deals at the Ice Fishing Show?????

9 posts in this topic

I was wondering if there are some good deals on fish locators at the Ice Fishing Show in December? Should I wait for the show or take an opportunity when it comes along? I am looking for a Vexilar FL-18 or Marcum LX-5. I appreciate your input.

Have a good day.

Thanks, Bruce

From my experiences most of the places at the December show arent really offering any decent deals. I'd check around on the internet and [YouNeedAuthorization].

Do they offer any good deals on augers?

We will have reconditioned Strikemaster augers at the show. They are a great deal. We have sold hundreds over the last several years. We will have the 8" Lazer Mag Express, 8" Eletra Lazer and the 8" Mag 2000

The ice fishing show in St Paul is a great place to see all the latest in gear and get great deals on stuff as well.

I have hit an all-star great deal there yet in two years of going. I like to check out all the toys and you can get decent deals. I think on the last day you can get better ones. It's still worth the trip down there. If you are trying to get a lot of stuff on a limited budget I would check out the for sale posts and other websites.

If you go to the store get all the dealers lowest price/best deals and see who will give ya the best deal. Tel the vender your at what you have been quoted by another vender and many times they will beat it.

Talk with Matt Johnson at Thorne Brothers and Russ at Marine General. They both go out of their way to get you the best deal they can.

Many times you can get a decent deal but where ya really come out ahead is when you get extras tossed in.
