I just about threw up when I saw that the Milwaukee and Chicago shows were cancelled. I don't understand why they just didn't push them back to March or April. I hope the Wausau one doesn't get cancelled. That one went on last year just before WI got shut down. Those shows always helped bridge the time between Christmas and opening day. It's gonna be a long winter/early spring.
Musky Shows Cancelled
Wausau has a reduced size one going on only over Friday/Sat. I'm just not sure I want to drive 3 hrs for a smaller show. I may just go and then stay heading north and hot Rollie & Hellen's. Depends on the weather too. And if it's worth the Covid risk.
I think all the small bait makers should get together in the spring “outside “ somewhere” and have their own show!!!!
My wife was happy too, but I spend my own money. This is going to really hurt the industry. I wonder what the gross sales at those events are? I really doubt the same money will make it's way into the lure makers hands via straight up retail sales. And it was fun chatting with them. I really wanted to add to my Muntz arsenal. Let's pray Wausau won't get cancelled. Are there any expos in rodentsota?
Only my bank account was happy when it saw those shows were cancelled.
