I am planning on going tomorrow afternoon for a little bit, I have been to it once before, it is fun to look and dream! Some good booths for resorts as well.

Definately worth going if you are window shopping, dreaming or need a place to chase the winter blues away from your kids.

The seminars they have are nice and informational, especially the dog training one with Jason Dommeyer, but they seem to have a lot more seminars a few years ago as compared to now.

Admission is about $6, 12 and under-free, I believe. I bit pricey in my book considering what they got/offer. But my kid love to go and check out all the boats and campers and then tries to help me persuade his mother that we need it when we get home... :-)

Hey all,

Had to go out the Sport and Vacation Show this afternoon and shoot video of it for future commercial/promotion use. Got a chance to look around a bit between camera setups.

Looks to be a good show, IMO

In fact KTTC did a live shot for their 6 pm news there tonight. Randy B was talking to the guy who is pitching the new small lightweight airplanes that you can buy for 100k and do't need an aviation license to fly it. I also saw there a motorized snowboard that looked kinda fun to tool around in and a few other booths I wouldn't mind looking into further.

Still would like to see more on the seminar list but the managing whitetails on small acres looked very interesting!

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
