I received an advertisement in the mail and there is no info as to the Manufacturers that are to be there. I think they print this before they sell all the space they have!!!
I usually go every year and have a good time, it is never disapointing. Shimano, Daiwa, Berkley, St. Croix, Lowrance, G. Loomis, Rapala and many others that I don't remember are always there. It is worth the price of admission!!!
Just remember on Thursday and Friday the doors open at 1:00 PM and show is open until 9:30 PM. Have fun, I will probably be there on Saturday!!!
