Ice Fishing TV Shows

22 posts in this topic

Hey does anybody know of any websites or anything online where you can watch ice fishing shows. Usually there are a couple on tv Saturdays and Sundays but I always seem to miss them. I have checked a couple show websites and can't find any section to watch the shows. Let me know if you have anything. Thanks

I get the Sportsmen's Channel down here (Irving, TX) and I watch Ice Fishing Critical Concepts by the In-Fisherman staff. I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!!! Given the fact I live where I do...I only get back north to ice fish once maybe twice...it keeps me in the loop. Actually it makes me want to move back north! lol

The HSO podcasts are good - definitely check them out. I'd agree that Ice Fishing Today is hilariously BAD. The host of the show is terrible, I've tried to watch it and I just can't... And, it is basically a Vexilar infomercial.

Set the DVR to record the In-Fish series - it's pretty good. Also, Jason Mitchell has a series on, forget the name. It's decent as well.

John Gillespi's show is pretty good and he ice fishes pretty much all winter and every show is a new one, no re-runs.

There's usually a good deal of shows having to do with ice fishing on Midwest Outdoors also. I think they are both on FSN on Sat. mornings.

I'm not too much on the Vexilar infomercial either but it is better than nothing.

I can't understand why they have all the hunting and fishing shows on saturday mornings when if you are into hunting and fishing thats the time you are most likely to be outside enjoying it instead of inside watching TV. I wish they would run those shows in the evenings.

Tony Dean was the best at what he did. I've enjoyed his shows since I was 10 years old.

Gillespi cracks me up grin

Yesterday, he was ice fishing for crappies and either him or someone he was assisting caught just a dink of a crappie, but Old Gillespi grin treated that thing like it was 17" plus! grin

I get his theme song stuck in my head all the time. The fan cheer part at the beginning, when the guy in the fro-wig is dancing on the pontoon grin

I figure it is worth the wait. I am sure it is not cheap to run a site like that and that is how they stay up and running.

Plus, I find the commercials cool grin It is better than watching antacid or loose 30lbs in 6 days commercials grin, like get on TV.

Add up the commercial time on a 1/2 hour Saturday fishing show and it really is not that bad, for what you get at HuntFishTV .

I think the shows run saturday mornings, due to the cost of TV time.

Tony Dean's show has been turned into Jason Mitchell Outdoors. I'm not sure on the TV schedule but the episodes are on the HSOforum. The second one is an ice fishing episode with Dave Genz.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
