    I was there too. Yes they have some GREAT sales going on. For those who like the new Shimano Curados they have them for $99 After rebate!! Thats HALF price!! They sold so many of them that the Shimano guy had to go back to the warehouse to get more for tomorrow. Even if they are out you can get a rain-check for them at that price.

    They had a 2 hour special ~ 30% off all G-Loomis Rods.... Needless to say I'm almost broke!

    The have specials going on all day. Seminars all day as well. Free BBQ tomorrow from 12-2.


    I'll be there tomorrow morning too!

    I'm biased, but yes. Seriously though, we created the show 5 years ago to be different than the big boxes. We had about 70 different companies send reps to the show to show the product. Our bass tank is mostly for 15 minute seminars on specific baits. If you want to see a bait thrown, they put it in the tank. It's a great chance to get hands on ideas from people who do this for a living. We do some crazy deals, come next year it will be the first weekend of March more than likely. Stay all day if possible, I do sales every 30 minutes, some sales that get other dealers and reps calling the store complaining. That's why I don't advertise them.
