2008 Bassmaster Classic Expo Part II

Up for grabs is the second installment of the Classic Expo, from Greenville, S.C. We take a look at the Abu Garcia Skeet Reese REVO, and boats from Champion, Ranger, BassCat, and Triton. Bassaholics was also at the show, with their new designs….and tons more!

Tabu Tackle

Tackle Approved by Us, TABU Tackle, debuted at its first big show in the Tackle Warehouse booth. The new Open Water series jig really shined as a great looking jig with top quality engineering. I’ll admit, I picked up a few for reviews.

Wingates Lodge & Bassaholics

Home of Jack Wingate, and his world renowned lodge on beautiful Lake Seminole. We found out the good spots on this lake and then dined me with some of the best food and sweet tea which was brought up from the Bainbridge Georgia headquarters. Wingate’s Lodge had several guides on hand to answer questions and exchange big bass stories.

Bassaholics , the leaders in trophy hunting, brought us the latest in their new lineup of t-shirts, hats, beanies, and rain gear. Our favorite being the new digital camo beanies and Coat of Arms brown long sleeve. You can bet they are setting the trends in 2008 when it comes to fishing apparel.

Costa Del Mar

Definitely one of the most interactive and friendly “booths” at the show.Costa Del Mar trucked in a StreamLine trailer, decked out in party fashion, with a camera crew. Inside, show goers could relax and tell their best fishing stories with a shot to be on their website. Decked out with a new hardwood interior, party lights, and bar, these guys have the #1 relaxation spot after a long show.

How does a boat and truck wrap company show of its prowess? How about by putting on a live boat wrapping show. The team from H20Wraps were in the ESPN booth working hard and showing the skill by wrapping a 21′ boat. Impressive to say the least!

When not working his heart out on websites, e-commerce, and programming, Branson like to enjoy time on the lake. His best times are spent with friends trophy bass hunting in Southern California.
