Hard work equals Tournament success

Hard work pays off

Mike and Cindy Howe NAIFC Second Place


We just returned from the North American Ice Fishing Circuit’s National Qualifier at Hebgen Lake. The West Yellowstone Ice Fishing Tournament is in its second year and this year had 68 registered teams. Teams compete for the best weight of 6 Rainbow Trout, Cutthroat and Cuttbow Hybrids. We are thrilled with our second place finish, especially considering the level of competition a National Qualifier brings, and the conditions we all faced. This finish qualifies us for the National Championship to be held December 21st, 2013 at Mille Lacs Lake in Minnesota. Better yet, you can learn all about the tactics we used on a lake we had never been to at our 5:00PM Friday night seminar Feb 15th at the Montana Sportsmans Expo in Kalispell. Please join us for “Tactics and Technology in Learning New Waters” as well as other seminars Sat and Sun. Go to http://www.montanasportsmansexpo.com/Schedule.html for more info.

Special thanks to Snappy Sport Senter, HT Enterprises/Polar Fire Gear, Ice Force, Marcum Technologies, StrikeMaster Ice Augers, Back Country Adventures and Kirkwood Resort of West Yellowstone, MT, Jack and Grete Baker of the NAIFC and all our competitors!
