The new Reel Animals Boat Show & Fishing Expo--known as the Frank Sargeant Outdoors Expo in a previous life--is on course for the Florida State Fairgrounds east of Tampa Nov. 17-19, and all FGA members are welcome to come out and enjoy the fun.
The show, now skippered by Captain Mike Anderson of Reel Animals Television and radio shows with Sargeant as advisor, follows the same format as the original--for more than two decades Florida's largest fishing show--with continuous educational angling seminars from top pros on multiple stages and lots of family-friendly activities along with all the latest and greatest in fishing boats and angling gear. Plus, dozens of well-known expert anglers and guides are on hand, happy to give fishing tips to those who want them.
For those of you who have print, radio or social media outlets, if you can find the space to give us a boost, it will be appreciated--and of course we'll be happy to return the favor if you need it down the trail.
Show hours are 10 to 6 on Friday and Saturday, 10 to 5 on Sunday. There are plenty of on-site food vendors, and if you'd like a draft Bud as happy hour approaches, that's available, too. It's one big party for guides, anglers and their families, and we'd love to see you there. See details at www.ReelAnimalsBoatShow.com.
Contact show manager Jim Scilligo for details: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 727-515-5652.
We'll look forward to seeing you in Tampa.
