The winter months can be a difficult time for many New Englanders. Fortunately we have seen a good ice fishing season so far – something not seen in the last few years – which eases the pain of some of us. But what is there to do if drilling holes in a frozen lake is simply not for you? Fret not as we’ve got you covered!

In just a few short days, beginning on January 26, the 2018 fishing, boating and outdoor show season kicks off for us in New England with the New England Fishing & Outdoor Expo in Boxboro, MA. If you just can’t wait for that show, then there is also Striper Day 2018 as well as the New York Boat Show in neighboring New York state. Both fo those shows are well worth the drive! From there on for the next three-plus months is the gauntlet of shows where stir-crazy anglers and boaters get a chance to ogle the latest and greatest from their favorite brands.

We are doing the usual slate of shows as years past, but we’ve also added a couple new ones to our schedule for 2018 and we look forward to seeing you at these great shows. Below is a look at where and when you can find The Fisherman across the Northeast this winter along with links to our calendar of events listing for each show; see you there!
