Ice Fishing TV show

12 posts in this topic

When does the ice fishing TV show start on channel 45 and FSN? I cannot find the original post that was made in here. I think it starts pretty soon.

My Tivo snatched it as I have an "ice fishing" wishlist... grin I was super pumped at first but then it turned out to be essentially a 30 minute commercial for Vexilar.... And BASIC info at best. mad

does this show typically present more in depth fishing info? Or is it an Ice Team product showcase?

IFT is a brand new show sponsored by Vexilar. I watched it online. good info for those who are new to the sport of ice fishing, like some of us who have been around the block a few times in the ice fishing world it might be old info.

Even though I have learned over the years a lot of what they were teaching and discussing I did pick up a couple of new tips from the show. Not everyone is an ice fishing guru. smile

Remember you have to learn to walk before you can run. wink

I like the fish fry and "Bluegill Bill" who is 83 or 85. I can only wish to make it to that age and to be as mobile as he is to do the things we all love to do. Watching that clip makes me hingry for some fried bluegill! I'll have to try the scaled version with the skin on. It's been a while since I had fish prepared that way. mmmmmm yum!

Commercial content is a given, they need to pay the bills too.

The content will broaden and become more advanced in future episodes. It is content rich, check the extras, like the Blue Gill cleaning and cooking for instance.

It is ment to introduce anglers to ice fishing and educate along the way. It is really a new format all together with the intigrated content and extras...preaty nifty stuff really. I liked the first show and expect greater things to come.

Consider episode #1 of IFT an introduction.

sounds like it could be a great show. I told guys in South Africa about how we can drive truck on the ice for fishing. They thought I was either super brave or super dumb. I can wait for ice, still time for open water.

    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
