I know I'll miss the fishing seminars , but most of them guys are just try'n to sell stuff , and I already got a couple boxes of their lures I don't use now . We're going to check out the neat new toys and get a $4 coke and be out of there in a couple hours .

    I look forward to this show every year, and since I ended up not being able to attend the Indiana Fishing Expo this past time around, I'm ready to see some fishing stuff. I'll be attending this coming Saturday as this weekend is also the Deer & Turkey part of the Expo. Hopefully I will see some of you guys there-- I'll be the one dragging my fiancee around from booth to booth! She's already mad that we'll be missing the Purdue/IU game that day. :wink:

    i was talking to a salesman today from teds aqua marine, he said they are only using 1/4 of their booth space, and the majority of dealers around indy have dropped out.. said it would be wise to wait and hear a review from someone else before spending time and money to get in there for nothing.. im just going off what i was told guys, so dont hold me to this:embarassed:

    i like going every year just to see all the neat new toys...

    Maybe they just dont know what they are missing. If they get enough requests, they may consider bringing in a Pro or two to give a seminar. If eveybody that goes up to Indy takes the time to look up the show coordinator, and makes a request, we might get it done for next year. I will make it a point to do it Saturday, and I'm takin BOC flyers with me. I will be the handsome guy wearing a BOC t-shirt and hat. Hope to see you all there, and hope you take the time to plead our case to the folks up there.

    I just got a report from my turkey huntin partner who went to the Deer and Turkey Expo/Boat, Sport, & Travel Show. He said it was the worst that he had ever been to. The economy has kept alot of exhibitors away from the big show. He said the NWTF, and Sportin Wood Turkey Calls were about the only 2 exhibitors for turkey. The boat selection and Tackle Town were really terrible. Guess I aint missin nothin being home sick.
