    With the KC 55th Annual Sport Show right around the corner on Jan. 7-11, 2009. I was wandering have any members heard anthing about the exhibtors that are going to attend. I went to the exhibtor list:

    http://www.kansascitysportshow.com/attendees/directory/exhibitorslist.aspx

    But I didn't see anything that indicate there would be any catfish exhibtors at all. Maybe I am jumping the gun, but it's right around the corner and I would hate to go and it's a SHAM.

    I know last year I got to sit through a few of the seminars, and I don't see anything on them even having them this year. And I know Team Catfish, Catfish Safari, Minnesota Bait where there, and a few others.,

    Any info would be really helpful.

    No JC, I wont be there. Not to steer anyone away from it, but Ive been very disappointed with the sportshow in the last few years. Only a handfull of catfishing booths, and way to many people trying to sell you a fly in canadian pike,muskie,walleye trip. I think the whole thing could be set up and ran alot better than what it is.
