For those that may be interested, the Canton Boat Show is this weekend. They have moved it from the Civic Center to the Stark county fairgrounds this year. In years past, they have given out a $10 coupon for Gander Mountain - not sure if they will this year or not. I found the following from the timesreporter.com:
Outdoor notebook: Shirhal, Kiser will be putting on seminars at Canton Boat Show
A few big names are coming out for the 21st annual Canton Boat Show that will be held at the Stark County Fairgrounds.
The three-day event will be held Feb. 5 and 6 and will feature outdoors writer and EverStart Series Pro Bass fisherman John M. Shirhal, and Jack Kiser, host of the “Buckeye Angler,” which is televised on PBS.
Shirhal has been an Ohio bass tournament fisherman for 30 years and has competed nationally for the past five. He has written and presented seminars explaining various techniques for catching largemouth and smallmouth bass. Shirhal, the author of “The Complete Guide to Bass Tournament Fishing,” will host four seminars at the show.
Kiser’s show is a PBS program whose focus is on fishing in Ohio’s public waters. He will present seminars on the correct way to begin fishing and catching northern pike.
Both will host seminars under the following schedule: Saturday – Noon, Shirhal; 2 p.m. – Kiser; 4 p.m. Shirhal. Sunday – 1 p.m. Shirhal; 2 p.m. – Kiser; 3 p.m. – Shirhal.
The show will run Friday from 4-9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
Tickets are $3.50 at the door for adults and children under 14 are free. Parking is also free.
