2011 Sportsmens Show is in the books….

WOAH…. What an event the 2011 Toronto Sportsmens Show turned out to be! The Fishing Hall was chock full of the best in fishing electronics and related accessories from Lowrance, Humminbird, Garmin, Icom, Standard Horizon, Vexilar, FishHawk, Navionics,  Marcum and more! MinnKota Trolling Motors and the new MinnKota Talon was another big hit and the prices at the Radioworld booth were something that was not to be missed!

The rest of the Fishing Hall was filled with the widest selection of fishing rods, lures, line, boats, motors, downriggers and all good things fishing, plus a huge selection of ATV’s and those world famous Triton Trailers (they are the best for sure). 

The Great Outdoors Seminar Stage was a HUGE HIT and featured the best in the industry talking to folks about fishing.
Bob Izumi was a big hit as always and shared some great stories with everyone. Bob was joined by friends Big Jim McLaughlin, Rocky Crawford and Radioworld ProStaffer Grant McAllister, all passing along fishing tips and techniquies to young and old all weekend long!

The Hunting Hall was also a big hit featuring some of the best Northern Wildlife exhibits I have ever seen.  Radioworld had a busy booth there as well, selling Game Cameras, Walkers Game Ear, Garmin GPS’s, Topo Software, Bushnell Binoculars, Spotting Scopes and Range Finders, SPOT Satellite Messengers, Swiss Army and Gerber knives and tools and some of the coolest solar power battery charging systems ever seen!

I have to thank the folks at Lowrance and Humminbird for assisting with an awesome ProStaff Team (Gerry Heels, Rick Weatherill – Lowrance)(Pete Bartonek – Humminbird) and my hats off to Team Humminbird and Team Garmin for a great showcase of products and ProStaffers at their corporate booths.

I also wanted to say thanks to a great show team. Bruce and Adam in the Hunting Hall, Lawren, Paul, Leo and Grant in the Fishing Hall…. You guys rock!

And to all my customers and friends… Thanks for making my weekend so enjoyable. I love my job…I love seeing all you people, laughing, telling stories and sharing lunches!

Ontario Chinese Anglers Association 12th Annniversary Dinner Party





I was fortunate enough to have been invited to the Ontario Chinese Anglers Association 12th Annual Anniversary Dinner Party last evening. Wow… what a great evening out with the who’s who of the fishing industry! Spending an evening with kind, like minded people is something special to say the least.

It was my pleasure to mingle amongst the Club Executive including my good friend Raymond Zee (words cannot describe the dedication of this man) it’s many members and other key members of the Ontario Fishing Community including Walter Oster and his wife Mary (Canadian National Sportsmens Shows), Minister of Natural Resources Linda Jeffries, Andy and Vita Pallotta (CSFL and Spring Fishing and Boat Show), Jim Grayston from Ontario Tourism, the infamous Wil Wegman just to name a few.

TV Celebrities were also in attendance including Leo Stakos (Host of FishTV), who’s hard work and dedication to the fishing industry is second to none. Leo did spend much of his time behind the microphone, praising the efforts of the O.C.A.A., acknowledging those folks who really do make a difference and was the driving force in raising thousands and thousands of dollars for fish conservation, enviromental education and related projects that the OCAA are involved in.  FishnCanada’s Mike Miller was also in attendance, as was Grant Mills (often seen on FishTV) and Professional Bass Angler Dave Chong!

Representatives from Shimano (Bob Mahoney), Optima Batteries, MNR, Muskies Canada and most major manufacturers and outdoor vendors were either there themselves or participated in some way in this event. The local marinas and lodges were also there, appreciative of the patronage and giving back to the community. I have to mention how nice it was to see Rosa Sharpe and Charles Ross from Lures and Tours as well. Two really nice people and an asset to the fishing community to say the least.  Have a browse through the Lures and Tours website for some great event photos!
