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.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!

    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
