The third annual Arrowhead Ice Fishing, Snowmobile and Holiday Show has hit town. The show opened at noon today at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center. I took a stroll through this afternoon. Lots of portable fishing shelters, crank-downs and skid shelters, along with snow machines, ATVs and more. Also lots of clothing, rods, reels, tackle and ice-fishing destinations. I watched folks fishing for trout and prizes at the Frozen Basin, and I watched a couple of black-footed penguins doing laps in a tank of water. The show is open until 9 p.m. tonight; from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday; and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
