1. MB: Travel Manitoba is hiring….
…a Fish and Hunt Marketing Specialist. Solid crew over there that’s super passionate about what they have to offer, which is a lot! Lookin’ forward to seeing who lands in the spot.
2. Can now get MEGA Down Imaging transducers…
…built in to your Minn Kota bow mount. No cluttered wires, clamps or electrical tape. And now buddy can’t break your transducer off trying to fetch a jig from those shallow rocks they shouldn’t have been casting at:
Oh and MEGA Down Imaging because:
3. MN has a festival celebrating…burbot.
Yup, for real! Called the International Eelpout Festival and happenin’ on Walker’s Leech Lake Feb 21-24. Been running 40-years strong, so you know it’s a good time. Else we all just have nothing better to do?
4. IA: Walleye season closes Feb 14…
…on Spirit, East and West Okoboji lakes.
5. ND: ShiverFest youth ice fishin’ tourney happenin’ Feb 16.
Out of Woodland Resort on Devils Lake, ND. Good luck kiddos!
6. IN’s looking for Conservation Officers.
7. Have you put together a fishing equipment inventory?
Probably should for the sake of insurance…can save you from a big headache if something should ever happen (fire, theft, wreck, etc). Check out this post to see how and why — would be terrified to see those final numbers though $$$:
8. Sam Sobi’s branchin’ out.
If you don’t know Sobi (great dude!) he’s a videographer/fishin’-maniac who was most recently shooting and editing for YouTube monsters @apbassing, and the Googan Squad.
Sobi just announced he’s gonna be doing his own thing now: focusing on his fishin’ Vlogs with the #1 goal being to grow the sport of fishing. Best of luck, dude! I’ll be following along….
9. Was hipped to a cool new product…
…called the Flack Jaket by TW fan Matt Ristow. Company makes bow guards and windshield protectors. Could probably pay for themselves with one bad hop of a rock? Diggin’ it:
10. WA DNR wants to raise salmon for…killer whales?
Wonder how many orcas buy fishing licenses each year??
11. MN: Gitcha current Lake of the Woods fishing reports here.
Updated weekly with what’s hot and where. Though some days the fishing’s so good on LOW I don’t think it matters.
