The 2016 Arrowhead Ice Fishing, Snowmobile and Winter Show will return Friday through Sunday to the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center. The event showcases the latest in ice-fishing shelters, augers, snow machines, electronics, tackle and more.
Not only retailers but also manufacturers will be on hand to answer questions. Informative seminars will be conducted throughout the show on a wide variety of winter sports topics. Among those presenting will be Jarrid Houston of South Range, who will talk about “Attacking the Big Waters” and “Late Ice Run and Gun for Panfish.”
Anglers can fish for live fish along with gift certificates at the “Frozen Basin,” a simulated ice-fishing pond. If you land one of the live fish, you’ll receive either a gift certificate ranging in value from $10 to $50 redeemable at any participating vendor at the show.
Or, if your fish has a colored tag attached, you will be the winner of one of many prizes.
Show hours are noon to 8 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $10 for those 13 and over, free for those 12 and younger.
