The water on Minnesota's 10,000 lakes has yet to freeze thick enough for anglers to venture out, augers in hand, and pull fish from the frigid depths. But it will be soon, which makes the timing for the 16th annual Ice Fishing and Winter Sports Show absolutely perfect. The nation's largest ice-fishing show (of course it happens here) offers ice fishers the chance to peruse the latest in fish technology, including ice houses and fancy-pants underwater fish cameras for the technologically advanced sportsman, from more than 125 exhibitors.
