The country’s largest ice fishing and winter sports show is set to begin in St. Paul the first week of December.

Thousands are again predicted to fill the St. Paul RiverCentre for the 23rd annual ice fishing and winter sports show this year.

The 2016 show will feature over 190 exhibitors and vendors, with products for every winter sports enthusiast.

The Midwest loves ice fishing – there’s no doubt about that. The climate is perfect for it.

Ice fishing seasons can stretch as long as five months or more. With ice thicknesses varying from a few inches to a couple feet each winter, there are options for ice anglers of any sort to get out after some cold water fish.

The St. Paul ice fishing show will take place Dec. 4-6. Again, the show will feature products for any ice angler or winter sports enthusiast, including fishing shelters, ice augers, rods, reels, fishing accessories, apparel, and much more. There are plenty of products just in time for holiday gifts.

But perhaps more importantly, the three days are packed full of awesome seminars you won’t want to miss. Every hour, there is a new topic presented by locally- and nationally-known expert anglers.

Be sure to purchase tickets online ahead of time so you don’t have to wait in line for tickets at the door, or miss out completely if they sell out.
