Meet the Godfather of the Modern Ice Fishing Revolution, Dave Genz, at a free ice fishing seminar on Wednesday, January 16, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. at the State Police Standards and Training Building, 17 Institute Drive Concord, N.H. (watch for “ice fishing seminar” signs as you enter the N.H. Technical Institute campus). No pre-registration required. For more information, contact Mark Beauchesne at 603-271-6355.
Dave Genz is legendary in the world of ice angling – an ice fishing expert who has taught techniques to thousands of anglers. He is credited with many innovations in ice fishing, including the portable ice fishing shelter. A native of Minnesota, Genz has become a big fan of New Hampshire’s ice fisheries. This will be his fourth trip to fish in the Granite State. “The ice fishing is so good in New Hampshire, I just had to come back for more,” Genz says.
At the free seminar, Genz will explain his “Modern Ice Fishing System” – strategies he developed to increase angler success on any species fished for through the ice. He will talk about many helpful tools and tactics, including the vital role electronics plays in modern ice fishing. Most important — getting the most out of your fish finder! “Using the right equipment, you could double your success,” says Genz.
Genz has been called “Mr. Blue Gill” for his love of this fighting panfish, but his seminar is wide-ranging. From trout to crappies, Genz will take you through his jigging techniques and tactics. He will also discuss proper jig selection, tipping jigs with live bait or the exciting new soft plastics that are gaining in popularity with ice anglers.
“If you are looking to step up your ice fishing game, this is a must-attend seminar. Fishing with Dave has helped me bring my ice fishing to a whole new level,” says Mark Beauchesne, an avid ice angler and marketing and promotions coordinator for N.H. Fish and Game
