Yup, Saturday afternoon around 2:30. Seems the only reason I go lately it to renew my subscription to the Fisherman.

Stopped going years back, just way too much stuff already, a lot of which has never seen the water. My biggest order yesterday was some new Thill bobber stops and some water proof boxes I needed to replace some old cracked ones. Other than that it's just some leader material and I'm done.

Same with me. I stopped going years ago. I have a problem with the President of RISAA paying himself a ton of money for a "non-profit" org. JMO

No boat, back in the suds.

It more or less for the boat guys nowadays but still fun to get out of the house and get the itch for the upcoming season. It's not like it used to be when there were a lot of the custom builders that had booths. Now you'll have to attend shows like Asbury, surfday, or a club that is putting something on to grab some quality stuff

Don't force it feel it.

Think I'm going to skip it... I honestly have what I need, and I feel the years of the real "show-day deals". just aren't there anymore. I think vendors would do themselves a HUGE service by offering at least a few hot items at a can't-miss price just to draw people in... Just like agent coullion told verbal Kint in usual suspects... "CONVINCE ME"...

I can't convince you. It's in the neighborhood, so I go out of habit, but I'm buying little or nothing. The best deals can often be found at used tackle sales sponsored by fishing clubs.

Boat owners should be checking SeaTow and Boat US for their show special prices.....

I stopped going when "squid mama" Sherry was no longer selling tickets. She'd always let me in for free.

That was after John stopped having the SB booth, and I got in with an exhibitor badge.

Even if a lot of you guys aren't attending and spending money, sales were up quite a bit for everyone I spoke with. This has been a pattern at all of the shows of which I have attended so far this year. From fishing line to lures to boats, people are buying heavily this year. Last year most vendors were complaining that they didn't make a dime, this year they were selling out of stock on day 1.

My buddy was working the Tsunami booth and he said 99% of the people who he spoke to either wanted a rod for the Canal or their new kayak (some for both... )

All in all I thought it was a very good show and thanks to everyone who stopped by to BS on Friday or Saturday.

"Out there in the surf is where it's at, that's where the line gets drawn in the sand between those who talk fishing and those who live it."

fishing there this year will be so pleasant, I'm sure it won't be crowded at all.

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.
