    I am heading down friday. Saturday it gets a little busier. Less time to talk to guys like Jeff. I can assure you all from past experience that Jeff will answer any and all questions you have about catfishing. He is a very nice guy and is not just there to try to get you to buy his products. If you have not tried them though you should.

    I am thinking Saturday I will make it there. See about trying to get some sponsorship items for the Rend Gathering 2010.

    The St Louis temp for Sat is 4*. To cold for this old boy. Some of you might want to check out Randy Howell seminar also. He is a great guy and can give you lots of pointers on bass fishing.

    I was there last year. A lot of homemade plastics can be bought for good value. Ton of boats were there if you are in market for them. Last year, my grandmother passed and the inheritance went into buying a 997 from there. Pretty much normal value. I don't really find a whole lot of great deals, everything is fair market value generally speaking.

    If you plan on taking a fishing trip somewhere new or want to try stripers or what have you... there are lot of booths dedicated to that sort of thing. Vacation trips and the like.

    And I will probably see you there Jeff.

    Didn't make it there today. The ole back was a little sore from all the shoveling. Note to self....buy a longer handled shovel and quit being cheap. LOL.

    Shoveled my walks and driveway as well as the neighbors who have bad backs and too young of kids to do it. I paid the price to being a lazy slug in bed all day! I hope to be there tomorrow though!

    Any great deals to be on the lookout for?
