Ice Institute 2022 - November 11-13

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 that same initial premise continues to serve as the foundation for the Ice Institute 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! Over 100 vendors have already registered to be a part of this year's show, including Clam, Otter, Eskimo, Strikemaster, Jiffy, Vexilar, Marcum, and many, many more! This will be the largest Ice Institute and promises to be the best!
