Fishing in a Holey Boat with Dave Genz

This is the blog post that brings you the video that many people have been asking about.  Why?  Because it's one of the most unusual ways to fish I've ever experienced.  I think it will be the same for you.

I spent a morning fishing in a holey boat with Dave Genz.

If  you're into ice fishing, you know Dave Genz as Mr. Ice Fishing.  He's the one who with his wife started making small ice shelters about 30 years ago.  Back then they were called Fish Traps and Genz started building the frames in his garage while his wife sewed the tent in the house.  Today, they are known as Clam shelters and come in a wide range of sizes.

But the video that I have on this post is not about shelters.  It's about how Genz took a gient leap forward in the ice fishing industry by customizing a new G-3 jon boat.  He had two holes cut into the floor and with some special aluminum welding, he can now put all of his ice fishing knowledge to work catching fish in open water.

Genz uses ice fishing tactics to catch a lot of nice sized bluegills in this video.  I had a ball fishing with him.  Check it out.
