What's good about Friday?

What is good about Friday, this Friday in particular, is there are three days left for the Ultimate Fishing Show-Detroit at Rock Financial Showplace in Novi.
Over 75 seminars will acquaint you with the finer techniques of walleye, ice, fly and kayak fishing, just to name several.
Presenters include world-class bass angler Kevin VanDam, Lance Valentine from Walleye-101, Chris LeMessurier of Kayak Fish the Great Lakes, Mark Martin, Chip Cartwright from Wolverine tackle, and new this year, Marianne Huskey, AIM touring walleye pro originally from Sault Ste. Marie, MI.
Kids can fish in the trout pond, enter the kids casting tournament and browse all the neat, new gear.
KD Outdoors has a large space devoted to gear for sale with show prices. Check out the new rods at Temple Fork Outfitters (TFO) and learn a little about center pin fishing that seems to be the rage at the moment.
The Coast Guard Auxilliary will help you become more safe on the water, and the Department of Natural Resources and Environment (DNRE) will answer those questions about fish stocking and deer numbers.
Because of our close proximity to Canada, the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol will help you plan your next trip into Canadian waters so you are properly prepared and versed on laws affecting both sides of the border.
When you get tired of wandering through all of the boats and tackle, take a breather with something to drink and maybe have a shore lunch-walleye and the trimmings-cooked and served show-side.
The Ultimate Fishing Show- Detroit is on today from Noon-9:30p.m., Sat. 10a.m.-9p.m., and Sun. 10a.m.-5p.m.

  1. I fondly remember taking my Son to the fishing shows when they were at Cobo Hall and the Silver Dome. He had a ball and wanted me to buy all the new lures being used in the testing tanks. We watched Bill Dance, jimmy Houston, and Roland Martin talk their thing. My son always fell asleep on the drive home while I smiled.
