The show at the Arlington race track hasn't been there in several years. The one at the Rosemont Convention Center is January 22-25. There is also one in Schaumburg either the first or second weekend in February.
The Deerfield show looks good. Only $5 to get in and our very own JD will be giving a seminar on Chain walleyes. They also have seminars on the 'Goons fishery and Lake Geneva bass and northern. And one of the exhibitors will be Lucky Dog. Sounds like a decent show. And it's only 15 minutes or so from my house.
The Lynwood show sounds good, but I am not driving an hour and a half to get there especially when it would take me the same amount of time to go to the much larger show in Milwaukee. Too bad it moved from Arlington.
Despite all this though I think my first priority is the Muskie show this weekend at Harper. It's more pricey to get in to, but there are some good deals in there and you get to meet all the big boys in the muskie world.
