Just a quick reminder: The Arrowhead Ice-Fishing and Winter Show will be held Friday through Sunday at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center. The event will include displays of portable fishing shelters, wheel houses, augers, electronics and a feature called the “Ice Box,” where show-goers can walk up and ask fishing pros questions.

As in previous years, the show will include the Frozen Basin, where anglers can catch fish through simulated ice-fishing holes and win gift certificates redeemable at the show.

Also back this year is the life-sized snow globe where people can step inside to have their photos taken for free. Elsewhere at the show, kids will be able to see and feed a baby camel and a baby water buffalo.

Retailers such as Marine General Supply in Duluth will have plenty of products on display and special show prices.
