The internet is buzzing with excited mid-west ice fishermen and women after last week’s St. Paul Ice Fishing Show. So many exciting new products and inventions to talk about as we all wait for Jack Frost to to cast his winter spell and make the “soft water” hard. A customer & friend of Smokey Hills (Parker Skolness) saw a heated ice fishing rod made by Chapsbuck Outdoorswhich gathered the interest of many people passing by. The rod apparently uses a rechargeable battery to heat the eyelets of the fishing stick. We were able to find a website for the new product here, if you want to check it out.Ice Castle impressed the masses by releasing some very cool new upgradesand a masterfully designed 5th Wheel Fish House / RV. Check out the photos and links below to see what is new!If you want to get the whole family the best Christmas gift ever and would like to use financing to get it done, click here to see how we can finance with ZERO MONEY DOWN and payments under $200 per month in most cases.
Park Rapids Area Ice Conditions
12/4/16 to 12/10/16
Smokey Hills Outdoor Store will be checking on Ice conditions around the area and reporting them weekly.We find ourselves having to warm up the vehicles in the morning as winter begins to take it’s grip. The local shallow lakes and ponds are already frozen over with the first layer of ice. The edges of the deeper lakes have also began to grow ice out the first 20 to 30 yards.
