I am planning on going tomorrow afternoon for a little bit, I have been to it once before, it is fun to look and dream! Some good booths for resorts as well.

Definately worth going if you are window shopping, dreaming or need a place to chase the winter blues away from your kids.

The seminars they have are nice and informational, especially the dog training one with Jason Dommeyer, but they seem to have a lot more seminars a few years ago as compared to now.

Admission is about $6, 12 and under-free, I believe. I bit pricey in my book considering what they got/offer. But my kid love to go and check out all the boats and campers and then tries to help me persuade his mother that we need it when we get home... :-)

Hey all,

Had to go out the Sport and Vacation Show this afternoon and shoot video of it for future commercial/promotion use. Got a chance to look around a bit between camera setups.

Looks to be a good show, IMO

In fact KTTC did a live shot for their 6 pm news there tonight. Randy B was talking to the guy who is pitching the new small lightweight airplanes that you can buy for 100k and do't need an aviation license to fly it. I also saw there a motorized snowboard that looked kinda fun to tool around in and a few other booths I wouldn't mind looking into further.

Still would like to see more on the seminar list but the managing whitetails on small acres looked very interesting!

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
