It is that time of the year again, time for the MI-Ohio Sportfishing Expo at the Monroe County Fairgrounds this February 9th and 10th.
See new products like these “No Loss” Quick Change Clevises from Dutch Fork Custom Lures (home of the plastic blades), sold through Angler’s Quest Tackle. You get the quick change capability you want, but never worry about losing a blade again.
You have to like the selection of accessories and tackle at Big Papa Sportfishing Products. Bob really makes and sells some quality product and will have a nice booth display at the show.
Capt. Dan Boileau of Tight Line Charters will be there too. If you jig in the river, or down on the lake, he has the best selection of Fin-S plastic minnows and the famous “Wyandotte Wonder Worms”. My favorite is the metallic blue! Check out the line-up of T-Rex jigs too, designed for the Detroit River and to cut its current.
Domka Outdoors will be there with a huge selection of jigs, blades, and cranks, lots of new stuff and patterns from Dave this year.
My one place I have to stop at is the TJ’s Tackle booth.
Last year I went whole hog with the whole fluid bed set-up and absolutely LOVED it. I had given up on powder paint years ago, the constant fluffing of the powder drove me crazy, but with the powder being in constant motion in the fluid bed, it made painting jigs a snap. I had to play with it right away, even though most of the jigging season was over with by that time, but look how good these jigs came out, ready for some hair and the spring bite down on Erie!
This year my big purchase from TJ’s is going to be the powder paint air gun, for a little fine tuning on blade baits and bottom bouncers.
Captain Jay will be there too, with new blade baits at his If n When Charters booth. Hard to go fishing on Erie in the spring without a fine selection of his blade baits!
See you there, at the Monroe County Fairgrounds, inside the MB&T Expo Center! Come support a great group of anglers that put on the show every year, the Huron Valley SportFishing Club. Let them know with your support, that having a fishing show in our own backyard, on the greatest walleye lake in the world is awesome!
