A.C. Boat Show Drops Anchor March 2-6 With New Boats & Fishing Seminars

A full lineup of informative fishing seminars hosted by RFA, Goose Hummock and The Fisherman is slated for Atlantic City.

The Progressive Insurance Atlantic City Boat Show – presented by Discover Boating – returns to the Atlantic City Convention Center March 2-6, welcoming nautical novices, seasoned sailors and water lovers an all-access pass to discover why life is better on a boat. With more than 415,000 new boat owners taking to the water in the last two years, demand for boating remains at an all-time high.

After a year hiatus due to COVID, attendees are invited to celebrate the homecoming of this annual boating tradition as they see and shop the most comprehensive selection of boat brands and types in the mid-Atlantic region, from offshore fishing boats to family cruisers. The Atlantic City Boat Show is the perfect opportunity to browse, compare and place orders for your first or next boat.

Gear up for boating season with sales on the newest boating accessories, marine electronics and on-the-water must-haves.  Once again, the Recreational Fishing Alliance and The Fisherman Magazine have partnered to deliver a series of seminars featuring some of the most recognized anglers at the Jersey Shore; and new for 2022 are a series of fishing workshops for beginners and advanced anglers presented by Goose Hummock outfitters, along with casting demos atop a 30-foot fishing tank.  Complimentary seminar sessions will cover a variety of topics—from proper rigging for big game fishing to offshore angling to how to land a trophy striper.

Check out the full lineup of “how to” fishing seminars in Atlantic City from March 2-6, 2022.

With your paid admission you’ll also enjoy free “Boating 101” education for new boaters and experts alike at Fred’s Shed How-To Center, featuring tips, advice and practical skills during daily seminars and demos that cover everything from getting started and operating your boat to service, maintenance and more.

Stop by Try it Cove for a full “on the water experience” including paddleboat demos and test rides, the Virtual Fishing Simulator to practice casting, and The America’s Boating Club Boating Skills Virtual Trainer. A unique SkillsUSA contest takes place on Wednesday, March 2 featuring high school students from New Jersey looking to pursue a career in the recreational boating industry. The contest winner earns the right move on to the National Skills USA Contest this summer.
