Why Go To The Fishing Expo?

For 3 BIG DAYS the Bass & Saltwater Fishing Expo brings together the finest products and services the fishing industry has to offer. Each year over 130 local, regional and national companies showcase tackle, rods & reels, apparel, maps, charters, sunglasses, boats, motors, electronics, knives…well you get the picture. Everything to get you out on the water “Rigged & Ready” for the season. And just to make sure you make the most of your fishing trip….we’ve put together a top notch panel of national & regional pros to share their secrets on “When, Where and How” to have the best fishing trip possible. There’s only one thing these guys enjoy more than fishing….and that’s telling others how to! From Catfish to Cobia……Sunfish to Sailfish….this show brings it all under one roof.
