What did everyone think of the ice fishing show? A lot of good stuff there, and the people that know what they are talking about. The visa card might be a bit beat up, but I have untill May to pay it off then it gets the big hurt. I picked up a few new jigging spoons and the rods (Genz sticks) and reels that go with them. I want to get one of those new 4 stroke augers but haven't got one yet. So much to get, so little time to use it.
I was there twice, picked up a few things but didn't quite have enough on my visa for that 40K ice house :-( Oh well maybe next year. Picked up a Sweetheart ice rod from Thorne Bros and Case for the best half for Christmas, best part is I made her carry the rod case around the show..
Did anyone see anything from Zero Degree Ice Tackle? They make the that new hands free tazer called the Glow N Go! It sits down by your hole and you bring in lure right ito it, it stays on for 10 seconds and shuts off automatically. Its great for ice fishing. Here's the website below www.zerodegreetackle.com
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
