That $100 vessel assist looks to be a great deal. Anyone know which tier membership that is? Also, my renewal is up in August, will they just go from there or the day of the show?
Unlimited + trailer assist for $99

Didn't see anything on sale that I wanted, Did get some good info on trips to Canada and Mexico. Probably could have gotten the same info on the internet. If I needed a pole or reel I think I could have gotten a better deal at Chark Bait (15-20% off during the show) plus a savings of $30.00 for not paying parking or admission to the show. Very questionable if I will continue attending the show every year.

I got an Okuma PCH Rail Rod for my son in-law for $202 plus a promo package of 5 Squish Jigs. btw, just the quality components ( less the blank) they used to build this cost well over $150. Can't beat it.

I got the renewal on Wednesday.

FYI, to answer my own question and in case anyone else was wondering, when you renew it picks up from the original date so I'm good until 8/2020.

JRI stingers were 8 bucks and buy 3 get 1 free I think at Bob sands. They also had the caivo large surface for $4 which is cheaper than LB Fishing. Turners had some good deals on rods too. I ended up buying 3 rods. Californian 8' for 60 a curado 8' for 72 and went half with a buddy on a 13 Omen bogo 25 a piece.

I went to the show today. It was absolutely packed! Bought two Phenix Rods and got 10% off both, wasn’t charged sales tax, and was given a free $150 jacket. Also bought two reels at Turners (a Lexa 400HD and a Tranx 500). Got 10% off both, plus a free fill of braid on both (65 lb. J-Braid on the Lexa, 85 lb. Max Cuatro on the Tranx), and a free Daiwa, fleece lined hoodie (tagged at $65), Spent a few dollars but definitely saved a few too.
Oh yeah, at the beef jerky booth it was buy five packages and get two free. Lots of fun. A great show.

My intent was to check out the used racks/cases and trade in some bass gear I haven't been using. I ended up getting a great condition MXL for only $25 after trade.

As for new stuff, I picked up a bunch of the Caivo jigs and some JRI's at Bob Sands, then scored a new Seeker at Squidco for ~80 off retail. I walked past the Haggard Pirate booth, snagged a few shirts then left.

FH is always a ton of fun, but its an experience more than a discount day. Hell, I need to plan better next year and just enjoy it more than scour for great deals on stuff I *think* I need this year.

Did anyone play that fishing game by Turners? Saw a video of a UC pro staffer (Mike) fighting a tuna and got it to gaff.

Found out about it after the fact.

I usually load up on sabikis and hooks and some line and of course BD T SHIRTS!! Wheres our coupons for those ?? ..overall Not a bargain when you add admission and parking .I got decent deals last year on a used Seeker and TLD 50 maybe half price....I hear that if you are in DM on Sunday, the last day of the FH run, when they are ready to close.. more deals can be had..for cash so they dont have to pack it up.. JS...
