Ice Fishing Show Dates?

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen any dates for the Ice Fishing Show this year. In the past it has always been the first weekend (F-S-S) in December. Does anyone know if that is true this year?

Got the itch to walk on water!

Thanks cool.gif

I am looking at buying a new Marcum and Otter Magnum Lodge for the upcoming season. I was just wanted to get an opinion on whether or not it is worth to wait until the Ice Show to buy this equipment? I have never been to the Ice Show, so I don't if they have deals going on there or not.

If you're set on what you want to purchase, go buy it now. Otherwise, the show is the best place to compare most of the available models on the market. Don't expect to save much money shopping at the show but don't be afraid to ask! Just get ready to pull the trigger soon after as some of the more popular models move off the shelf quickly (My Fishtrap Yukon for example).

Reynolds,

If you stop by the Thorne Bros booth during the Ice Show we can hook you up with a deal on both products... or else stop in Thorne Bros the day after Thanksgiving and we'll do the same...

I too would also wait for the ice fishing show to make "bigger" purchases also.

I've saved pretty good money on an ice auger, and a handheld GPS ($100 cheaper than any other place) at the show.

the one day sale at thorne bros (day after thanksgiving) will get you as good a deal as at the show if not better, and its much easier than having to carry a shack out of the river center!!!

p.s. in my opinion tyhorne bros is THE ONLY place to shop for large items like that. their prices are as good or better than the "big box" retailers, and their customer service is hands down the best around!!

    • Nice win last night with Kepler & Schoop doing the heavy lifting. Some tough but good work done by the bullpen too.  Yanks beat the Indians as well.👍
    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.    
    • Thanks guys I will look into them.
