Count yourself among most of the fishermen in the entire country. We have cabin fever. It’s common this time of year when hunting and football overtake wetting a line on the list of weekend priorities. Or, it’s just plain too chilly and the days too short to go fishing. Rest assured that a cure on the way. skeeter-boats_bass-fishing_bass-masters_ That cure comes from a boat and outdoor shows coincidentally held during the dead of winter, when you can’t go fishing. The tradeoff is you can see, feel and hear what is to come in spring, even though not on the water. You can also get great deals on the latest gear you need to catch more and bigger fish.
