Ron Slater from Portage Lakes Bait and Tackle will be there all 3 days. My Bass seminars will be on Saturday at 2:00 p.m., and also Sunday at 1:00 P.M.... I will be focused on the Alabama Rigs, and also Finnese fishing.

From what I have heard, it is supposed to be the largest in the state, with double lines going around the building all three days, especially Saturday and Sunday.

Then I will probably not come to see your seminar if I have to wait in that kind of line. ;-)

The lines are only long early in the morning. Gone in 1/2 hour. I think you will be pleased with this one. Thanks.

Agree with "firstflight". I live within 15 min. and go every year. Never wait to get in. Would not drive from Cleveland to visit this one, unless I have been really bored with winter, if ya get my drift.

Buddy had free tickets to go and asked me. I said no haven't gone in years. Well him and a couple guys went. All three said no more. It was a big waste of time. Not much there and no deals. Sportsman show at ix too. Guess the days of great shows are over.

I agree Viper, I was at Niles on Friday and there wasn't much there. I went to Erie,PA for that show on Saturday, and it was terrible. At Erie, if it wasn't for various Vol.Fire Depts. selling gun raffle tickets, charters booths and oufitters for bear hunting booths, there wouldn't have been any booths there. I swore off the shows at the IX Center 5 years ago, and I am done with Erie too now. There use to be some good shows around, but I agree, those days are gone.

bull, why would you even post this? every year it's the same thing. guys asking who's going before and guys saying how bad it was after. it's just a small show that gets the local guys out of the house. i quit these shows years ago but given my choice, if i was bored i would go to this before the ix center just to save some money.
