On Saturday, December 8th from 10 AM till 12:00 PM, Shabbona's Lakeside Bait, Tackle & Boat Rental will be hosting a free Ice Fishing Seminar at Pokanoka's Restaurant. Speaker will be the Crappie Professor, Jim Kopjo. Jim is a tournament Ice Fisherman competing in several states.
For those who would like to learn and try ice fishing this is a great opportunity. For those who used to ice fish, this will be a great chance to pick up a few pointers and get back into the game. For those that ice fish a lot, this is a chance to always learn more.
Shabbona Lakeside will have all of its ice fishing tackle available for 15% off that day. Stock up for the ice fishing season at Lakeside! Lakeside’s motto is “Offer What Works At Shabbona Lake!!!” If they run out of any ice fishing items, they will re-order them for you at the same special 15% off price.
