Which ice fishing show?

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of driving down to the cities for one of the Ice Fishing Shows. Which is more worth my drive? I hear the one in St. Paul is the same weekend as some displays at the big "C" in Rogers.

Thanks in advance for advice!

Personally if I had to choose one I would go to the one in St. Paul no question about it.

Many more companies and lots of great deals.

St Paul, no question. If you have never been, it blows your mind when you go down that escalator.

River Center that is the best one in the State, all of the big venders will be there.

there is going to be one in Rogers? Why would they plan a show the same time as the one at the River Center? That dont make no sense at all.

Why not catch both? Plan your drive into or out of town on 94 and catch Cabelas sales too. Free parking and no ticket to enter to boot.

The reason Cabelas has sales on the same day is in hopes that people will stop by on the way down or way home from the ice show. If you do end up stopping at Rogers that weekend. Please stop by and say hi..

Are there supposed to be some pretty good deals in Rogers that weekend? Mostly icefishing or everything?

Yeah those Cabelas "Sales" are great.

I have never found much of a deal on anything there, unless it was on clearance.

Since I live by a Big C in Owatonna, Go to St. Paul. Much more stuff to see and do. Good deals at the st. Paul show, the deals at cabelas you can get most of the year.

I have worked both shows and both offer some good deals. If I were to pick one, The St paul ice show it would be. I would guess that there are more vendors at the St Paul show.

I have seen some very good deals at Cabelas during that weekend.

Heck, if you have time, hit them both.

    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
    • Way to go Britt!
    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.
