I can go the AC Boat show or the Greater Philly Outdoor Show, both in February.

Anybody have experience with either? I am looking for some nice plugs, lures, etc. I looked at the exhibitor list, but curious about any impressions/preferences?

I got my favorite Chaos rod from the AC show about 10 years ago, so I'm leaning towards that, but I haven't been since.

Thanks!

are you looking for any particular plug builder ?
No I'm not. I am just looking to fill out my bag with some pieces you can't find on the shelf, so to speak. Don't really know what I am looking for, but I would like to grab some needles. I'm still relatively new to this (<2 years), so I guess I am still in a "discovery" phase with plugs and lures. I am in Delaware so North Jersey might be a hike for me. I'm going to check out the DelVal anglers one on the 21st, that looks promising.

Sounds good I will definitely be there, Horsham/Springhouse is my hometown so it will be a great reason to go back. Looking forward to it.

I think you need to add the Asbury Show to your list as already mentioned. Berkeley and Asbury have always been the talk down this way.

Another good one is The Saltwater Expo in March. Its 90% saltwater related, not much of the BS vendors with pickles and slippers. :)
