Remember guys this is still a young show and requires everyones support. Talked with Greg and he is working hard to make this show a success. The show needs to be supported by us local guys and clubs. Vendor list is looking good,hope everyone stops in and checks it out. To put in a show of this caliber is not an easy or cheap task. Looks like the weather is definetly in our favor this year. Hope to see a bunch of you guys at the show!



Totally agree...the show needs our support. That's why I bumped this thread, was to generate some talk and exposure. Just saying I have guys from out of state email or call me and ask if the show is still on or not, and even local muskie fishermen who don't even know the show is happening because they haven't seen anything mentioned or advertised.


I agree as well the show needs support... But with out advertising how is the general public going to even know there is a show. Outside the core group of muskie anglers that are going to attend the show anyhow you have to be able to let people know who are not in the muskie scene. Last year you would see michigan muskie show all over facebook this year was minimal at best and thats free advertising. When I was at the chicago show some of the vendors were asking if there was even going to be a show due to the lack of advertising and communication with the michigan muskie show. I hope the turn out is great but if no one knows about it how are they supposed to attend.Look at the Milwaukee Muskie Show that guy is constantly sending emails, on facebook, returning vendors phone calls and thats free. I hope im wrong and the show has a great turnout so all the vendors have a good show.

For whatever reason, I have to agree that the advertising campaign for this show has been lacking this year. Most of what I have seen and heard has come from us vendors who are working hard to get the word out to our customer bases because we all would like to see this show succeed. I was told that heavy advertising would be put into this website over a month ago, and outside of this thread I have seen nothing. Aside from that, I truly hope we have a great weekend of weather and a great turn out from some enthusiastic Muskie Fishermen. This show started with a solid base last year and I hope it can continue to grow. I am really excited to be heading back next weekend and look forward to seein everyone at the show. Please stop by our Stealth Tackle booth and say hello.
Thanks,
John

If I remember correctly last year's show was advertised in Musky Hunter magazine & this year there's no advertising anywhere that I've seen. I've seen on vendor's websites & Facebook pages mentioning the Michigan show but no other advertisement.

I read on MuskiesFirst that they doubled the cost of a booth for this years show. If that's true I can see justifying the increase if they were going to promote the show more.
LSC has become over guided & over exposed & many good fishing spots have become over crowded no thanks to the Internet. Damn you Al Gore!!! Why did you have to invent the Internet?
