If you’re looking to stock up on ice fishing equipment or even open-water fishing gear for next summer, you will want to visit ClearH2O Tackle’s Ice Fishing Open House.

The annual event will be held at the Edwardsburg store from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday Dec. 10, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday Dec. 11, and 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday Dec. 12.

Store owner Darrin Schaap says he will be running special pricing during the three days on several ice tackle items, including augers, rod and reel combos, heaters, graphs, clothing and more.

You might even find better deals in the overstocked section.

Need incentive to buy now? There’s no guarantee inventory or pricing will be the same in 2022.

“It’s no secret that manufacturers are raising prices in the near future,” Schaap said. “Our supply sources tell us that we can expect price increases and that they are still facing supply issues, so there’s no guarantee we will have everything in a timely manner in the months to come.”

In addition to ice gear, ClearH2O Tackle has a fresh supply of rods and reels from Shimano, G. Loomis and Lew’s, including the new Signature Series Zona and KVD rods.
