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.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
