You will find a show floor jammed with more than 200 vendors and 300 tables offering everything you could possibly need for a successful fishing season. With the free admission comes an impressive lineup of seminars by some of Long Island’s best captains and anglers, along with a Panel of Experts ready to answer any fishing related questions you come up with. The show is produced by the student members of the school’s fishing club and its director, Bob Wilson. The proceeds from a major raffle featuring charter trips, custom rods, tackle, maritime art and more benefits the Ward Melville High School Fishing Club.

Fisherman staffers will be manning booths at this event. Be sure to stop by and say hello. While you’re there, renew your current subscription or sign up at the show and go home with Fishbites soft baits and hooks from BKK.
There will be a free shuttle bus starting at 10 a.m. and running till 3 p.m. This bus will bring you back and forth from Arrowhead Elementary School on Arrowhead Rd (located at 62 Arrowhead Lane East Setauket, just north of Nesconset Hwy/Rt. 347 and is off of Old Town Road) to the main entrance. The staff knows when our lot gets full that parking is difficult but they would like to remind you that you can park at then elementary school on Norwood Ave (which is in walking distance) and would ask you not to park in the funeral home or Jewish center parking lots.
