Ice show

Recommended Posts

Who is going to the ice show this weekend? 

I'm headed up in the morning. Not really sure I need anything but you always seem to find something too good to pass up.

 

I do want to look at what new ice fishing graphs there are this year.

I am waiting to go to the Duluth show next weekend but I know what I what is not going to be there and that is the Otter Hub Resort. Sounds like they are late on shipping out of China. Not really sure I need anything else but would like to look at some chairs for the hub. Getting too old to always be sitting on a bucket.

I just looked at their site to see what you were getting.  Sweet looking rigs!  I saw several things they make that I’d like to have myself.  Let us know what you think when you get em.

I picked up the Clam Legend 20th anniversary flip over at the show for 420 out the door so I'm glad I went! Thanks for the post or I would have missed the show.

Went on Saturday. Place was absolutely packed. Made the mistake of taking my wife and two young kids - pushing a stroller through a sea of people was nearly impossible. Luckily they found a place to camp out while I went shopping.

But I did find a decent deal on the Helix 5 I wanted, so I was happy. Now we just need these 50 degree temps to go away.

No doubt. Hadn't been to it since I was a kid and didn't realize how popular the show was. Also thought there might be a fishing "pond" or something for the kids - but I didn't see anything like that.

I know there was an ice fishing show at the Sports Center in Blaine a few weeks ago. Is that one just as crazy?

The guard in the elevator we took with the stroller said Friday was pretty busy, Saturday is packed, and Sunday it usually slows down.

There was a pond for kids in the second level auditorium.

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
    • I like that you caught someone else taking photos of the feast too!
