The Nation’s Largest Pure Fishing Show to Drop Anchor in Metro-Detroit
the Largest Freshwater Fishing Market in the Country
The Ultimate Fishing Show-Detroit is now bigger and better than ever.
Novi — The largest pure fishing show in the country returns to the largest freshwater fishing market in the country when the Ultimate Fishing Show-Detroit drops anchor at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, January 9 to 12.
More freshwater fishing licenses are sold in the Metro-Detroit area than any other similar geographic region in the country. So it makes perfect sense that the largest pure fishing show in the country would set its hook in Metro-Detroit.
“With last year’s expansion at Suburban Collection Showplace we’ve now got seven full acres of fishing boats, fishing tackle, fishing gear, fishing vacations, fishing seminars, and factory-direct exhibits,” says Show Manager Ben Nielsen. “This show is perfect for anyone interested in fishing, from beginners to tournament pros.”
Looking for a fishing boat? Ultimate Fishing Show-Detroit has over 250 different boats on display from 40 manufacturers so patrons can shop and compare. Get the best preseason deals and manufacturer rebates at the Ultimate Fishing Show-Detroit.
“This is the place to buy your fishing boat,” Nielsen says. “If you want a boat in the spring you need to order it in the winter to ensure spring delivery and the Ultimate Fishing Show-Detroit is the place to find your best deal.”
The Ultimate Fishing Show–Detroit is well known for its extensive seminar line-up presenting seminars every hour on five seminar stages including Lake Ultimate and the Hawg Trough. Nearly every Michigan game fish species will be covered – free with show admission.
Headlining this year’s all-star seminar lineup are national bass fishing personalities and Michigan residents Kevin VanDam and Mark Zona. VanDam, a four time Bassmaster Classic Champ and seven time B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year, will make a special appearance on Thursday, Jan. 9, only. Zona, host of Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show and a regular on several ESPN Outdoors shows, also will make a special appearance on Friday, Jan. 10, only.
Joining these two celebrities in the seminar lineup are bass professionals Joe Thomas, Wayne carpenter and Gerry Gostenik along with nationally acclaimed walleye experts Mark Martin, Mark Romanack and Lance Valentine, ice fishing specialist Brian “Bro” Brosdahl and many other national and local fishing experts.
This year’s show features the largest ice fishing display in the state at the greatly expanded Ultimate Ice Fishing Village. Along with a Shanty Truckload Sale, there also will be a vast variety of augers, electronics, tackle and gear for sale. Manufacturer exhibits from Clam, Otter, Ardisam (Eskimo), Frabill, Striker and more will be on hand all four days of the show to answer questions and explain the features of their line of ice fishing equipment.
Some of the other highlights of the show include, Lake Ultimate, the Hawg Trough, Ultimate Bass, Walleye and Salmon Clinics, Fish Cleaning Demonstrations, a Virtual Fishing Simulator, a Stocked Trout Pond, Fly Casting and Fly Tying Lessons, Shore Lunch Fish Fry and much more.
