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.

I can't wait to fish them both! I'm gonna try to trade my way onto a tuna trip, and throw this thing at em!

It was great to meet you Tony! I'll be up in the cape most of the summer, we gotta fish!

I think next year I'm going to do Risaa again and try to do both edison NJ shows. I'll have to bribe Abe to get him off the island that many times in one year....
