St. Paul Ice Show

What a weekend! For the past 3 days, St. Paul has been the place to gather. A place for enthusiasts and professionals to come together to celebrate what makes this sport of ice fishing so unique and so wonderful. For many, the St. Paul Ice Show is the kick off to the Ice Fishing season. For us, here at Tuned Up Custom Rods, it is the culmination of months of hard work and preparation. And we are so happy that we were able to show that hard work and dedication to so many of you.

Some years the show comes before the ice on the lakes. This year, people have been able to venture out on many lakes across the ice belt for some time before the show. The energy at the show was palpable with people excited to be able to test out their new gear right away. People coming to the Tuned Up booth were able to talk with James Holst and Pat McSharry of In Depth Outdoors about the episodes they are currently planning or have already filmed. They could pick the brain of Brad Hawthorne of Brad Hawthorne Guide Service about the trends on the great Mille Lacs Lake. Or talk to metro guide Larry Hanson from Larry Hanson Outdoors about his decades of experience on Lake Minnetonka.

Regardless of who you may have talked with at our booth, you were talking with someone with a passion for fishing. TUCR is a company of fishermen and women with a passion for making the best fishing rods possible. As our motto says, we are For Fishermen, By Fishermen.

Even though the St. Paul show is over, the ice season is just kicking into gear. Remember to visit give us a call, or stop by our shop in Coon Rapids, MN for any and all your Custom Rods needs.


May your ice be thick and your lines tight,
