Times past anglers relied on publications, bait shops and fellow fisherman for their information on new techniques and products. Now with the internet and social media like Facebook and other similar resoures the sportspeople of the world have come together in a way that allows for interactions on a scale never seen before. Example: I catch a fish then post in detail how fish was caught, where it was caught and with whom I was with when ~Read More~

No matter where you looked this weekend you saw something consistent throughout the show. Regardless of age or gender, or what outdoor activity brought you to the show, or whether you were an exhibitor or attendee, you eventually ended up wearing one, if not many, of these. It didn’t matter the time of day, what you had on, what side of the table you were occupying or whether you were giving or appreciating a ~Read More~
I awoke finally feeling rested, and as we assembled after breakfast, I could tell we were all bright-eyed, bushy-tailed and ready for a full day at the Ice Fishing & Winter Sports Show. Good thing too, because we were busy!
