I love this show every year I go. Always run into some people I know and meet new friends. I will be there Friday March 3rd. After that my wife and I will spend the night in Long Beach and in the morning we will take a drive to San Diego. I depart on a 15 day on the Intrepid Sunday March 5th. She has a 8AM flight on Sunday morning so I will drive her to the airport and come back and load my truck for the check in at the Intrepid office. Hope to see some faces I know and meet some new friends.

Hey Soda Pop!
And others! I'm going Friday as well. Last few years have been too chaotic on Saturdays....so looking to take a deep dive into some Railrods and see if I can find an addition to my cow town arsenal. 1 rod and 1 reel is my goal. I'll be staying in the area that night as well. Who else from this forum might I run into?

Check your calendar Dave. It's a 16 day, not a 15 day. :) See you at the dock on Sunday. Looking forward to fishing with you again.

    I'll be there Friday as well but chances are you will only see me as just another Joe LOL I drive down from Santa Barbara and make it a day trip. It's always fun to see the new stuff and be tempted with all that candy laying around.

    Dave - stop by the United Composites booth and come pull on some rail rods. The full arsenal will be there for you to play with and to compare. Thank you.

    There is a big mix of vendors at the show. There are some very large operations like Turners that have set prices and will definitely collect sales tax. There are other smaller vendors and sometimes individuals working a booth who are selling personal items who will deal with you especially if you are paying cash. Late in the day on Sunday is a good time to wheel and deal but by then you may not find what you are looking for.

    Well, I was at the show most all day. I had some reels worked on by Ken's Custom Reels .... top notch and fairly priced. Bought a bunch of jigs at Bob Sands ... a bunch of JRI surface jigs, hooicides and Caivos. Went to some interesting seminars, and bought a bunch of plastics and lead heads. .... and a HUK hoodie for wifey. Talked to Jamie at Bob Sands, Eric at Erics, Andrew at the Mirage booth - I had not seen him for a few years, so that was great. All and all, a great day.
