If Thanksgiving can be hijacked by Christmas, then by that standard it is never too early to start talking about ice fishing. That being said, the Cabela’s ice fishing catalog came in today’s mail with all the new gear available for this year. From Clam shacks and suits, to the entire lineup from Vexilar, to my favorite St. Croix ice rods to the Rapala jigging baits to my favorite spoons from Northland Tackle and the Jiffy Augers that allow me cut through the ice with propane fueled power.
If you want to talk ice fishing and all the products that will help you out this season, or if you want to find that perfect present for the ice fishing type person in your life, here is the deal. The first three weekends in December I will be hunkered down in the ice fishing section of the fishing and marine departments at our local Cabela’s in Dundee, Michigan. If you need a hand in picking out some gear, or just want to get some of the latest info about catching panfish, walleye and pike through the ice, you can find there on both Saturday and Sunday during those weekends. See you there….
