I kind of felt the same way. I didn't go to the one last year, so I don't know what has changed. I thought there would be a lot more there. All in all, there really is a lot of stuff there. I think I expected to see more.  ???

I ended up buying a bag full of tip ups (HT type) and a handful of kodiak jigs. Looked for Bean, but didn't see him when I was there. (Not that I know what he looks like, just looked by the Ice Shanty apparel.)

Not a bad show though.  :)

I thought there would be more there. I was looking for a cover for my Nanook, clam wasn't selling anything, and couldn't find anyone else selling them. I also could not find tipup line or steel leaders. I guess I was under the impression I would be able to find anything ice fishing related. On the other hand you could buy pot's and pans, and also tractors.

You guys need to let "us" know what you expected/wanted to see...  The show cant get better without feed back..  Only ice fisherman can make it better and bigger.... ;D

   But your talking about vendors... Do you want local guys selling things or do you want the top brand name guys showing off the new stuff??...

I went tonight and thought it was pretty good.  It was hard to hear the seminars where they are located on the main floor.  They could put them in the corners and have it a little out of the way. 

I'd like to see some more "places to go" type of booths.  There was one guy from Lake Simcoe, that looks really good. 

There were 3 or 4 vendors selling IDI Arctic Armour, all for the same price.  (As a matter of fact, I've never seen it for a different price anywhere)   There were plenty of jigs to choose from, and I bought a pocket full. 

I also bought a Thorne Bros rod, which is something I would never buy online and I don't see it anywhere in local shops.  The salesguy at Thorne was very knowledgeable and pointed me to the right setup, again something you don't usually find in the local shops. 

The representative from Marcum spent 15 minutes with me explaining all the different models and features, even though I told him I already have a x67c and didn't need a new flasher.  But you know I came THIS CLOSE to buying the LX5!!!!  They had a great show special running....

The tractors and pots and pans, I could do without, but they pay for a booth and help make the show run, so they are going to be there.  The young lady at the vacation giveaway booth did have a bit of a wardrobe malfunction  :o so that was another "attraction" ;)

Some of the booths sell, and some of the booths are just showing off product line.  I liked seeing the new stuff from Frabill and a few others, I might not buy it right now, but I know a little more about what's out there, and that is worth the price of admission for me.

If you think about it, there is not as much "gear" as regular fishing or as for hunting.  Most everything ice fishing related was there, and if it wasn't there, it can be pretty easily had at any local shop.

I picked up a few odss n' ends along with five IDI Immersion suits: one for me and my Dear Sweet Other. One for my Grandson Ryan, (first time onto the ice since Iraq), and brother Sean and his son Rusty, Sean went through the ice on a wheeler with friend Donny last year. It was a struggle for Sean to get out and Donny almost didn't without Sean's help. When I mentioned new ice the other day Sean said ''I ain't goin' out there...'' untill I mentioed my getting a suit and telling him about the IDI suits. Then it was ''Get one for Rusty too.'' They'll pay me back but I'm on the hook for three, and well worth it too. I got the Camo with the 'quiet' fleece on the outside so they'll work for hunting too.

The show has stuff I haven't seen yet so I'll be going all three days. Had a good time meeting with Bean from PA and chatting for a while. I'll see who's taking over when I get back from deer hunting in the morning up in the Fulton area. Last hurrah with the shotgun, then it's on to the smokepole for a while.

I went for a one man flip over, and came home with one.  I was able to check out the various ones on display, reps from Frabill and Clam, but one could only buy them from Thorne Bros. or Gander.  Another item I'm happy about was the rack for my snowmobile I picked up.  I've been pondering for quite a while how to make one, but I don't have a welder.  Somebody from Michigan was there with a rack system for both snowmobiles and ATVs, one came home with me   :)

Got to see Dave Genz again and see his seminar, always an honor  Also saw Tony Boshold there from the Icemen TV show, he gave an informative presentation and was a great help with the Marcums and Frabills.

Parking is a rip off at $7, next time I think I'll cruise the streets looking for a parking place.

I'm not able to attend the show but wonder if you could help me out?  The guy from Michigan with the rack system, did you happen to get his information? maybe his website or phone number?  Any assistance is appreciated.
