Rate This Season

A very popular thread title now on many forum sites. How would I rate this season, is WOW a choice? I had such an amazing season, not just the fishing, but the people I met, the places I have gone, all of it was awesome.

The beginning of this season started lake many others, spending the first few Saturdays of ice fishing in stores promoting products, which don't get me wrong, I LOVE doing, but it does cut into fishing time. I then had the chance to fish the NAIFC Championship with my partner Adam Schumacher, at which I won the "Big Fish" award. After the championship it was back home to fish the small Kettle Moraine Forest lakes, many not fished hard in the winter, and many with lots of good panfish. The 2011 NAIFC season started in January and we had a great time doing that. We had the chance to brag about all the great sponsors that helped us get there, and we made many new friends along the way.

This season certainly peaked for me two weekends ago when I made it onto the USA Ice Team. That will be something I cherish for a long time.

The next ice fishing season starts now basically. Its time to get the bio refreshed, time to sit down with the people that helped us last year and work on a plan to continue to grow their brand. Its also time to find others that may want a unique promotional opportunity.

I have many things to work on while there is no ice, but believe me next season has already started.

Oh and an actually rating of this season, I'll give it a 9 out of 10. There always has to be room for improvement or we would have no goals to strive for.
