Ice Institute 2020

Ice Institute

The Dakota Angler Ice Institute was started in 2008 to give ice fishermen an apportunity to see the latest and greatest in the ice fishing industry, but also learn from the experts on how to use the equipment. Throughout the years, the Ice Institute has a had a number of professors share their knowledge with those that have attended. A few of those professors or speakers include, the "Godfather" of ice fishing - Dave Genz, Jason Mitchell, Chip Leer, Brad Hawthorne, Dennis Kassube, Brian Brosdahl, and many, many more. And having that same premise serve as the foundation, the Ice Institute continues today! You'll be able to see all the latest and greatest in the ice fishing world, including portable & permanent ice shacks, augers, electronics, as well as plenty of jigs and lures! Admission is only $5 to get into the door. Plus, we offer a weekend pass for $12. You won't want to miss this great event!
