Don’t miss out on the Florida Sportsman Expo in West Palm Beach this Saturday and Sunday!
For the 21st year, Florida Sportsman magazine will be hosting the popular Florida Sportsman Expo at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach throughout the weekend of Oct. 12-13, 2013.
Visitors will be treated to a huge indoor “three-ring circus” of events for anglers, boaters and lovers of the outdoors. Each day brings fishing seminars from the region’s best experts along with a 100-foot indoor cast pond, a kids’ casting pond and free prizes, hands-on rigging tables set up for 80 people at a time, free fly- and net-casting lessons, and the newest lineup of tackle, gear and boats for 2014.
“It’s a great chance for everyone from beginners to experts to pick up added skills and take advantage of show specials on boats, tackle, gear, gadgets and accessories,” says Expo Director Doug Kelly.
An added attraction each day is a free drawing for all attendees for a 42-inch flat screen TV donated by The Sportsman Channel. Editors from Florida Sportsman will also be on hand to greet visitors along with many Treasure Coast TV, newspaper and radio personalities.
“We anticipate a jam-packed hall again this year with rows and rows of goodies,” Kelly says. “It’s the perfect opportunity to save big on Christmas presents.”
Inshore and offshore boats of all sizes will be available at show prizes. Four seminar stages will be going on simultaneously, with presentations on the Rhodan Inshore Stage and the Cortland Offshore Stage by Capt. Eden White, Capt. Dave Justice, Capt. Mark King, Capt. Mark Nichols, Capt. Stan Jarusinski, Capt. Danny Barrow, Capt. Larry Finch, Capt. Rick Ryals, Conrad Lau, Betty Bauman and Dr. Ray Waldner.
