Prepare for hard water by visiting an ice fishing show
It’s that time of year again. The temperatures are dropping and ice fishing will be here soon. Invest time now in learning about the newest gear available. Visit local retailers or one of the upcoming sport shows dedicated to ice fishing for multiple species.
Every year companies produce new gadgets, gizmos, and technological advances to help you catch more fish and to be more comfortable during winter. Some are good, some are great, and some are simply trying to fix a problem that doesn’t exist. That said, what better place to check out this new gear than at a show with a bunch of fellow ice fishing freaks. Other ice fishing enthusiasts are everywhere, so don’t be afraid to ask questions. The people in the booth use the products, help create the products, and just flat-out understand the products.
Sport shows are also a place to buy the newest gear at great prices.
Check out the free seminars the pros produce, and learn more about their favorite gear and tactics that’ll put more fish on the ice. You can’t beat learning from experts who spend the most time on the ice. Stop by the Outdoor News booth and subscribe to our print publication and get a free Outdoor News hat. You’ll receive years worth of tips, tactics, stories, and more sent right to your mailbox.
Before heading to a show, make a list of people you want to see or interview, what items you're considering as a purchase, and also what presentations you want to see.
I will be at the Hard Water Ice Fishing Expo in Blaine, Minn., this weekend, working the Outdoor News and Otter Outdoors booths, so make sure to stop by!
