Wow, I went to the show yesterday evening and it was hardly worth the trip. It was about 1/4 the size it was when I went about 3 years ago. I know it's a sign of our economy but it was really sad to see how few vendors and guides were there. I did meet a few other TF'ers there. Nice to meet you Fishing Frank who was working the MSSA booth. And also the other TFer who was working the Tri-state exibit (can't remember your TF handle) but had a great chat. I did get some of the fish belly shad which look like they might be great on the flats this spring. Anybody else see these plastics? They have great action and are neutrally buoyant so they will have great action in the shallower water.
