Dave Lefebre – Update to Start 2015

Bucks Falcon Mercury

LefebreBlog Cover2015I got up early this morning to get ready for a seminar I’m doing tonight, but I really want to go back to bed. I just finished up hosting a writer’s event up here in Erie, PA, and after 8 straight days out on the ice, I can tell you…I’m whooped! But it was a very productive outing and hopefully we’ll do the Erie Ice Camp again next winter.

It’s so hard to believe how far ice fishing has come in recent years; I’m speaking of the technology and equipment mainly. The concept of this sport is so primitive, yet the newest equipment is so advanced…in particular, the new MarCum PanCam, which is controlled by an App on my phone and can post underwater pictures and videos to my Facebook page instantly. We had 4 phones hooked up to it at one time, all monitoring the activity back at the hut (under the ice) while we hole jumped around…anyone could pan the camera lens around by swiping their finger on their phone…It’s an awesome deal! Then there’s the new VMC Tungsten glow Jigs, the Trigger-X scent enhanced baits, and the synthetic Strike Master Lazer Auger, which weighs only 4 pounds and cuts ice like butter. And the newest stuff from 13 Fishing blew everyone away as well, especially the new cutting edge “Tickle Stick!”

13 Fishing Ice RodThere are so many other things going on this off-season that I can say for the first time in my career that I’m concerned, and losing some sleep. My wife, Anne, and I have been praying continuously, and though we remain confident, we can’t help but be a little worried at times as the 2015 season rapidly approaches. Someone sent me this the other day…“When you are down to nothing, God is up to something”…and I’m holding on to that. I also believe in the power of prayer, and through this blog, I’m asking that you would kindly add my family to your prayer list. There are a lot of tough things going on in this world right now, people suffering through much worse circumstances, that my situation seems so incredibly insignificant. But I’m prepared to accept whatever is meant to happen in my life, still working hard to maintain the life I feel God called me for, but just praying for some direction at God is Up to Somethingthis time and a new sponsor opportunity.

Anne and I believe we made the right decision to step away from our team deal with FLW, And then when Kellogg’s pulled out, just days later, it actually seemed like a “sign”, but so far, every door has closed as we seek a fresh new start. As long as we have our family and friends, that’s truly all that really matters. God is good and in control!
