Ice Fishing Season is HERE! Make sure you buy your supplies from Home of Economy.
We do a good business in ice fishing. The problem with it is it comes all at once. All of the lakes seem to get strong enough at about the same time and everyone's buying all of their gear at the same time.
The one thing people come back for time after time is bait. We do a great job with bait in our Grand Forks, Devils Lake and Minot stores. It's not the most profitable line for us but it does bring in people. I guess we could get cheap and count out the minnows but that'd take our sales people away from more important thing and we'd probably sell less bait. I don't see much profit in doing it that way.
