Dave Genz, a 68 year old ice fishing guru from St. Cloud, Minnesota, is truly a living legend when it comes to hard water fishing. He’s come a long way from the days of building the original ice huts in his garage 35 years ago. Today, he’s the face of Clam Outdoors and the senior member of the company’s Ice Team. Genz is considered the godfather of ice fishing and he’s not slowing down at all. He has spent the last 30 years crisscrossing the northern United States and southern Canada. Testing and refining his "Winter Fishing System" on big and small water, proving that his system works on all species of fish. Dave was added to the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame in 2011. His smiling face on and off the ice is infectious, a true ambassador of the sport. Genz has been an industry leader for many years, creating innovations that have changed the sport as we know it. We are fortunate to have Genz as a headline speaker and in the Ice Fishing area talking Ice Fishing with the attendees for the entire three days of the Expo. If you’ve never had an opportunity to meet Genz, this is a perfect chance to hear him talk … and shake his hand. He truly is a game-changer when it comes to fish and fishing – especially as it relates to one-ice activities.
