VERNDALE, Minn. -- Jason Geis wanted a better ice fishing setup for his family.

That's when innovation led to entrepreneurship, prompting Geis to leave his job for a boat manufacturer and go into business for himself -- helping create a better ice house for other anglers who love the outdoors during the winter.

His business, The Blackhole Outdoors, continues to expand with new product launches planned for 2021.
