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.

    • that would be samanthasquatch 
    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
