Jay’s Ice Fishing Day

Recently there was a special ice fishing day at Jays Sporting Goods in Clare, MI, and while there isn’t any ice around, we’re all thinking about it so why not get together and talk about it.

It was a day full of seminars with myself, Jake Romanack, and USA Ice Team members Chas Thompson and Steph Sissell speaking. Topics covered included hot tips on catching more panfish and how to be safe on the ice. Plus, Chas and Steph did a great job on sharing their experiences at the world ice fishing championships.

In between seminars we were available in the fishing department to talk about K&E Tackle’s new items. These new items along with classics like the Whip R Rod and Skandia Tungsten Jigs made for great conversation and hopes of hitting the ice soon. And of course, there were special deals on K&E Tackle and other great ice fishing gear. The Bear Creek Auger Adapter took a lot of interest as I had mine on hand and demonstrated it for people to see in action.

The staff at Jay’s is great and very knowledgeable. If you are ever in the area I would recommend stopping in to take a look around. You never know, they may even have a seminar that day.

Until next time friends…
