The show all about fishing tackle, fishing boats, fishing trips and fishing information
Novi — With more than 400, 000 licensed anglers living within an hour’s drive of Suburban Collection Showplace, the Ultimate Fishing Show – Detroit drops anchor in the middle of America’s largest freshwater fishing market. Anglers attend the annual show to find the season’s best value on fishing boats and angling gear and to book fishing adventures from the dozens of professional guides, charter boat captains, lodges and outfitters.
The finest boat dealers specializing in fishing boats are bringing more than 200 new fishing boats, complete with motors and trailers and fully tricked out for immediate angling action. They will unveil the state’s most complete assortment of fishing boats representing 40 brands at the new year’s best prices.
UFD offers four acres of boats, tackle, gear, and specialized fishing equipment – a smorgasbord for buyers seeking new product selection and value. Frank’s Great Outdoors, Lakeside Fishing Shop, KD Outdoors and other key Michigan retailers are among the 150 tackle exhibitors.
Anglers can choose from the plethora of brand names as well as customized, specialized gear that includes cutting-edge electronics, fishing-boat accessories, and the newest offerings in downriggers, outriggers, rods, reels, nets, lines, lures and other gear.
Because of its sheer size, the show attracts representatives from major manufacturers such as Berkley, Fenwick, Lowrance, Okuma, Shimano, Offshore Tackle, Bert’s Custom Tackle and others.
Many guides, outfitters, lodges, charter fishing captains and other destination vendors have reserved space again this year. The “Outfitters Expo” is a popular show within the show that offers fishing and family vacations throughout Michigan, the Great Lakes, Canada and beyond. Patrons can compare costs and services by speaking directly to lodge owners, fishing guides and even bush plane pilots.

About that Saltwater fishing expo in SOmerset
I had posted about the Fishing Expo in Somerset, remember someone said it was spam? :) Well, I did go to it and it was amazing. Holy shit! I found a new brand (to me) of Fly reel that seems to be really well made and inexpensive, for a fly reel. So soon as I get some free cash I'll order one.
It was really great, it's been a very long time since I've done any fishing and it just felt great to be around like minded people and really get to see what kind of tackle is used up here in the North East. Now I just gotta figure out how, when and where to get out
Saltwater Fishing Expo in Somerset
March 18-20th there is a Saltwater Expo at the Garden State Center. I'm going and thought I'd give you guys a heads up in case you want to go.
Go to www dot sportshows dot com to get more info, there are three more scheduled in different areas in the North East.
I went to the Flyfishing SHow there and it was amazing!
Pennsylvania gun owners
Pennsylvania gun owners threatened to boycott the state's largest hunting and fishing expo Tuesday after organizers announced that they would ban the display and sale of assault rifles at this year's show. Reed Exhibitions, a British-based company that runs the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Harrisburg each February, notified vendors of the change in policy over the last several days, a company representative confirmed to The Inquirer.
The presence of so-called assault weapons and high-capacity magazines might have served as "a distraction" from other aspects of the event in the wake of the recent school shootings in Newtown, Conn
