From the looks of my Faceboook feed lately, there’s been no shortage of ice fishing going on. There’s also been a few people breaking through the ice. Fortunately, I haven’t heard of any serious accidents. Hopefully it stays that way.
Fishing has been good and ice conditions keep getting better. If we can keep making ice without a heavy snowfall, we could be in for a great year. Knock on wood.
We’ll talk hard water a lot on this week’s radio show. We’ve got Chad Hiepler from Ice Castle on the show to talk about the 1st Annual Ice Castle Classic, Feb 8th on Lac qui Parle. Laurie Hallowell from GS Media and Events will join us to rundown everything that you can see at the 21st Annual St Paul Ice Fishing and Winter Sports Show, Dec 6 – 8 at the St Paul RiverCentre. We won’t completely dominate the show with ice fishing however as we’ll discuss deer hunting and waterfowl hunting (as well as ice fishing) with Avery Prostaffer Ben Brettingen from In-Depth Outdoors. More specifically what to do when you have disagreements with neighboring hunters.
