2017 Omaha Sport Show!

I call these few months right after the first of the year “Sport Show” season.  This weekend is the big one, the Omaha Boat, Sports and Travel Show.  Might as well watch the promotional video:

There will pretty much be something there for everyone, bring the whole family.  Stop by the “Goose Pit” and pick the brains of the experts; I know Keith Kavajecz is one of the very best walleye pros.

I love wandering around sport shows and seeing all the booths from all the spots on everyone’s “bucket list”.  And you know I always love seeing pictures of big fish!  While you walk up and down the aisles of the Omaha sport show this weekend, pay attention to the Nebraska destinations.  Our state really does have some great places to visit, and absolutely has some great fishing too!

Once again this year our Game & Parks Commission booth will pretty much be in the middle of the show, stop by and say “Hi”!  I will be around over the weekend, come see my photo album, tell me a fish story, ask your fish and fishing questions!

Oh yes, my buddy Greg Wagner will be around too, Sorry.  (Ha!)
