Free ticket for someone to go home and go ice fishing

Recommended Posts

Guest

My name is Susan Michaelson, associate segment producer for a new television show for the Home and Garden Television Network (HGTV.)

Our show features people who are returning home for some event that is important to them.

My supervising producer is interested in doing a story about someone going home to go ice fishing.

I saw your website, and thought you may be able to point me toward someone who might fit.

I'm looking for someone who:
has a great personality
Lives in a state other than their home state currently
Grew up ice fishing
loves their hometown
still has a lot of connections in their hometown (family, friends,
memories...)
would find the experience of being on TV fun
is planning on going to an ice fishing competition that takes place in
their hometown.

I realize this is a tall order--an that's why I need your help! Are you the subject I'm looking for? Do you know of anyone who is?

I can genuinely say the show is a fun experience for the participant. So far, we have taped 30 episodes, and everyone has had a great time featuring their hometown and taking a look at their life in this way.

We have a small approval process, but if approved, the show can pay for the airfare of the person home and the edited copy of the show is a fantastic keepsake of the journey home.

Please call me if you'd like to hear more or think you might have a possible candidate! I'd love to feature ICE FISHING!

Thanks for your time.

Sincerely,


Susan Michaelson
Associate Segment Producer

If you guys are really interested in doing this TV show thing, get on the ball and call her number. Chances are slim that she's even going to remember this site (no offense, Rick!).

      Alright everyone, since I’m starting to see some open water out here in South Dakota I’m itching to get off the ice fishing talk. Due to the virus, this is likely to be my first opener on Vermilion in about 20 years. What are some strategies that you use that time of year? Depth, presentation, bait etc.    I’ll warm up on the April walleyes out here in the meantime!

      Got home from work while it was raining.  It finally slacked up around 5 and I took a walk around the yard, picked up some stuff, trimmed a few trees and stretched out a little further to figure out a few blind sets for turkey season.  As comfortable as I am with the ground around me, it was worth the scout.  I figured out 3 spots that I hadn’t considered before.     It was definitely refreshing to be outside again and now I can at least have some anticipation for the upcoming season!

      Huh, crows.  Interesting.  Never thought about them as a spring shoot type bird.   In prime breeding colors I bet! 😁   I watched a dad gum black squirrel take a hideout in one of my new wood duck boxes tonight.  I think I’ll have words with him tomorrow.

      Went out to break in the shotgun and boy I was shooting way off mark at them crows. Finn sat there watching and shaking his head as I unloaded multiple times. It was fun to shoulder the shotgun again. Might try again tomorrow

      I fished out of a 10ft pelican for close to 5 years before last year getting into a 16.5’ alumacraft. I ran that yak in some nasty waves and wind. But it always made it, I caught many many fish in that yak ( still have it yet) Always good times but not the most stable boat and not a ton of storage. But it worked for me. Never had any issues with the hull and it got hauled a lot but one could defiantly tell it wasn't the thickest or strongest. I had a yak gear crate setup I’d strap to the back for longer trips. Worked great for storage and didn’t effect stability. Only bad part is you could get anything out of it once on the water in fear of tipping over which made it kinda useless. But it was kinda top of the line for me I even had a Fancy humminbird portable unit id use in it.

      That perception for the price is another reason I went that way. Budget. 😁

      oh intresting ok thats something to consider I guess
    • Rick G
      Ldpe (low density polly ethelene ) and Hdpe high density.... are what most plastic yaks are made from. Hdpe is much more impact and abrasion resistant than it's low density cousin. The sun will also have less impact on the hd types, my first kayak was a Ldpe yak, when it got hot out, the plastic would get softer and more of a flex to it.
    • Austin12345
      ok if there are any other good brands you think I should take a look at please let me know
