Humminbird Day Seminar April 4th 2015 at Radioworld

Join professional angler Barry Graves at Radioworld on Saturday April 4th 2015 for his seminar “Taking the Mystery out of Fishing with Electronics”.  Barry constantly uses his Humminbird electronics on the water to not only find fish but also to position his boat to make the perfect cast once he has found them.

Using electronics isn’t something just for anglers fishing deeper water as Barry will demonstrate how he relies on them when fishing shallow cover for Largemouth bass.  He will cover a number of other situations where electronics play a major role in his fishing.

This seminar is FREE of charge to all who wish to attend but we ask that you register with us at events@radioworld.ca to help us plan for the day.  We will have complimentary coffee and timbits.

Ice Fishing Seminar Recap

We had an awesome turn out last Saturday at our 3rd Annual Ice Fishing Seminar and Sale with over 100 people in attendance!  Thanks to all who came out to take in the seminars and the great deals we had on ice fishing products!

The day started off with Humminbird pro staff, Barry Graves, sharing some of his hotspots on Lake Simcoe and his approach to finding those spots.  His seminar was very detailed with locations to begin fishing through the ice on Simcoe.  Barry had maps of Simcoe on his powerpoint and pointed out the general location he starts each year and how he follows the fish as the year progresses.

Next up was Jeff Chisholm of The Quinte Ice Team who had quite a bit of insight on fishing the bay.  We had a large number of anglers in attendance who regularly fish Quinte and I am sure they took away a lot from his talk.  Jeff spent a fair amount of time covering the importance of fishing with current in mind when on the Bay of Quinte.  Jeff is a ice fishing guide on the Bay of Quinte and would be more than happy to take you out for a day of ice fishing and teach what he has learned about fishing the bay.  Jeff is an angler who understands the importance of Navionics charts in his Magellan handheld GPS unit for locating spots in the winter and teaches the ins and outs of GPS on the ice during his charters.

The infamous “Big Jim” McLaughlin made his first trip down to Radioworld for the Ice Seminar Day.  His seminar was full of tips that he has learned over the past 20 years of ice fishing.  “Big Jim” has been fortunate enough to ice fish with some of the top names in the sport and he passed on the knowledge he gained from anglers such as ice fishing legend Dave Genz.  As always with Big Jim, his seminar was full of laughs and great stories.  He made a lot of people smile by giving away a number of Shimano reels, Power Pro line, and Shimano hats as he went along.

 

After the lunch break, which was compliments of Lowrance, Wil Wegman took the stage and provided a lot of back ground info on Lake Simcoe which shed some light on the fishery and where it is today.  Wil’s Scandinavian Ice Sled was one of the highlights of his presentation.  If you ever see a guy out on Simcoe using a dog sled looking thing without the dogs…its probably Wil.  He said he can make it across Cook’s Bay in about 25 minutes and burns nothing but calories.

There were a number of special guests throughout the day including Pete Bowman and Angelo Viola from The Fish’n Canada Show were on hand to help with our raffle draws and sign autographs. Ashley Rae and Danny Dunn were also around Radioworld for much of the day along with reps from all our Ice Fishing related manufacturers.

After the day was all said and done we gave away over $1000 worth of prizes to those at the seminar and in the store that day.  Special thanks to Shimano, Power Pro, HT Enterprises, Steiner Binoculars, Frabill, etackle.ca, Set The Hook, and Humminbird/Minn Kota for providing all the FREE stuff for us to give away!!!

Thanks to all who came out and supported this event again in 2011!  Our goal at Radioworld is to not only sell you electronics, but also provide you with the best possible support and product information on those products we sell.  Informative workshops like this are a great way to learn from some of the best pro’s in the industry.  Don’t miss out on the next one!
