Mid-Canada Boat Show on tap

? It’s been a long winter in Sunset Country, but we’re at that point now where we’re just about over the hump and things are going to start looking up.
The days are getting longer, the weather is going to start getting better, and the fishing will really heat up in the coming weeks as the snow begins to melt.
For those of you already thinking about the open-water season, the annual Mid-Canada Boat Show runs this Thursday through Sunday on all three floors at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.
If you are interested in buying a boat, any kind of boat, you can find it here for the best prices you’ll see all year. Several dealers are at this show and they are very competitive on their prices—whether you are looking for a fishing boat, cruising boat, or personal watercraft.
The reason most people attend this show is to see the newest and latest in boats and motors, as well as boating accessories. A number of fishing tackle retailers at the show this year, as well, so if you are looking to find a new rod and reel or some new baits, you can find them here.
If you are interested in wake boarding, there will be demos going on throughout the weekend on the second floor. For anglers who attend, fishing seminars are slated on each day of the event at the mega tank, which is loaded with large pike, walleye, and perch.
Learn the latest techniques and see some of the newest tackle for 2011 in action. This giant fish tank always is a big hit with the kids, as well.
For all the tournament anglers out there, if you are considering a new boat purchase this year, think about a Lund. They are the only boat company that sponsors nearly all of the bass and walleye tournaments in our region.
We have some of the best events in North America but without the support of Lund, this would not be the case.
The boat I run, the 2010 Predator, has large deck on it (as big as that on any bass boat). It also has a huge amount of storage for rods, tackle, and gear.
And it’s fast. I’ve been in a lot of boats and this one handles the choppy waters of Lake of the Woods and Rainy Lake better than any I’ve ever been in.
Everyone who attends the show can enter their name in a draw for a portable hot tub, and everyone who purchases a new boat there can get their name entered into a draw for $5,000 towards their purchase.
I will be around the show all weekend, doing some fishing seminars and talking fishing with folks.
If you make it to the show, be sure to drop by and say hi.
