I went yesterday, it might just be me but, I seemed to be a little lighter on serious fishing displays compared to previous years. They had quite a few booths that were not even fishing related. The boat display area seemed bigger than previous years. With that being said, it was still worth going, after all it is January in MI. I’ll be curious to see everyone else’s opinion on the show.
Agree to most comments, however, they had all the custom warrior lures for 10 bucks on any lure type, that was a solid deal to me. Also franks had dhj12 for 4.00, again very solid price in my book.
I use it as a time to see some new products (maybe), and to put my hands on a few things just to see if I might like it. I did see a few deals but it depends on what you are looking to find.
For the most part, I came, I saw, I left. I got my fill of people, and walked away empty handed.
I worked at the Warrior Lures booth all day yesterday. It was nice as always talking about walleye trolling but, I had the guys at Warrior put together a 6 pack of my favorite colors of copper blanked spoons for Wheatly / Erieau, between this and talking with Polesetter, talking about trolling spoons for steelhead was GREATLY increased yesterday compared to years past. It was a great day ! I will be at the Warrior Lures booth today until about 12;30 and I am about 90 percent sure that I am going to hit the meet and greet .
