Get tips from

the ‘godfather’

CONCORD – Meet the “Godfather of the Modern Ice Fishing Revolution,” Dave Genz, at a free ice fishing seminar on Wednesday, Jan. 16, at 7 p.m. at the State Police Standards and Training Building, 17 Institute Drive, Concord.

No preregistration is required. For more information, contact Mark Beauchesne at 271-6355.

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 said.

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.

“Using the right equipment, you could double your success,” Genz said.

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.

See a video of Genz and Mark Beauchesne as they rediscover the thrill of ice fishing on Lake Winnipesaukee, along with other short, full-screen video stories on ice-fishing, at fishnh.com/Media/video_icefishing.html.
