2008 Bassmaster Classic Expo Part 1

To say this years Classic was the SuperBowl of the fishing industry is an understatement. Fans from all over the country came to look, cheer, and spend at the 2008 Bassmaster Classic Expo. See what made one of the best consumer fishing shows of the year. We took so many pictures, we had to break this one up into 2 parts!! Yikes!

Tackle Warehouse

Our boys from Cali. flew out, decked to the max with the newest gear. Their booth was full of pros, sales reps, and long lines of customers every day. They had 8 registers constantly running, and for good reason. Special show deals from Kistler, Lobina Lures, and Lucky Craft kept them busy for 3 days.

Capitalizing on the success of the Steez series as well as an expanded lure market, Daiwa’s booth had interactive lure tank, walls of new lures, and areas to test out the newest reels and rods. Daiwa had several staff on hand to answer questions and to get product into anglers hands.

What else can we expect from Lowrance this year? How about more top of the line $1k+ sonar and GPS gear. I was able to play with every one of their products from their line. This included handheld GPS units all the way up to the Rolls Royce of sonar, the LCX-113C HD which boasts a 10.4″ LCD screen and 30GB hard drive.
