2019 Winnipeg Ice Fishing Show
Last year, we were very excited to be part of Winnipeg’s first Ice Fishing Show hosted by Kickerfish (Eric Labaupa and his amazing team). We had a blast, made a lot of great friends, and made some awesome connections with fishing pros and other experts in the local fishing/guiding scene.
And if you thought it was a lot of work to put together the “first annual” of anything, I can’t even imagine the pressure to come up with an encore. I think Kickerfish nailed it! There were all kinds of contests, demonstrations and lots of new and innovative products on display. We were thrilled to have one of our very own Snowdogs front and center in a huge ice fishing display as you walked in to the show. At every turn there was something new to see! It sure wasn’t the same show as last year, even if a good portion of the exhibitors were the same. There were some amazing prize draws too, for anyone who took advantage of the deals at the show.
Just like last year, we learned a lot at this show. It was great to catch up with some of our friends, too: Todd Longley (City Cats), Dan Kaizik (Cat Eye Fishing), Mike Dotoli (Two Rivers Boat Works) and we even had an opportunity to catch up with some of our customers! As always, we enjoyed hearing stories of the “original” Snowdog: the Hus-Ski and the Diablo Rouge from attendees who remember them first-hand or even owned one back in the 60’s. Thanks to all of you who stopped by to share your stories and to compare notes. It was a pleasure meeting all of the folks that stopped by our booth, even if we couldn’t convince some of you that Snowdogs were better than your enclosed, heated side-by-side with tracks.
This year we took a more casual approach at the show. We focused one the practical uses of the Snowdog in winter for things like ice fishing, but also their summertime uses, like hunting and even farming. These are unique and very capable machines that can do much more than just haul ice fishing gear (which they do very well, I have to say), and if an ATV or snowmobile isn’t in the budget, a Snowdog might be worth a closer look.
From all of us at Recreation Revolution, thanks to the Kickerfish team and all the volunteers that made the 2nd annual Winnipeg Ice Fishing Show a great success. We’re looking forward to next year’s show! Until then, we hope to see you on the ice!
