The pandemic put an end to sportsman’s shows, but those who look forward to those winter features now have some choices. The World Fishing Expo at Suffern will take another year off, but the Saltwater Fishing Expo returns March 18-20 at the N.J. Convention Center in Edison, N.J.
That site at Raritan Center is also where the N.J. Boat Sale & Expo is presently located through the weekend. For details visit njboatsaleexpo.com.
Also this weekend, anglers can take in the 100 percent fishing Philadelphia Fishing Show at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks. Call 732 330-5674 or visit phillyfishingshow.com for details.
Both of this weekend’s shows include free seminars sponsored by The Fisherman magazine.
A storm warning goes up at 6 p.m. for south winds gusting to 40 knots. That switches to west at 25-30 knots plus gusts to 45 and possible showers in the morning before going northwest at 25-30 knots plus gusts to 35 in the afternoon.
