Wisconsin Fishing Expo


Wisconsin Fishing Expo logoThe Wisconsin Fishing Expo arrives at Exhibition Hall in Madison’s Alliant Energy Center February 23-25, 2018, and is expanding yet again to offer more than 125,000 square feet of exhibits!

In 2017, the Wisconsin Fishing Expo expanded for additional fishing- and hunting-related wildlife art and goods. This year, a new wing will open focused on kayaks and other silent watercraft. This growing sport provides anglers an affordable, additional way to get on the water. Check out the latest technologies from some of the top silent sport brands in the nation!

You can still expect mom-and-pop fishing vendors with gear that anglers can’t find at box stores. There will also be a tremendous presence from some of the leading national brands in the fishing industry, including Clam, Berkley, Beaver Dam, ACME, Fenwick, Okuma, Gamakatsu, Ray Marine, Garmin, St. Croix, Fishing Hot Spots, Stren, and many, many more.

For boats, over 20 brands will be ready to sell from top bets like Crestliner, Alumacraft, Bass Cat, Yar Craft, Tracker, Ranger, Triton, Smoker Craft, Bennington, and others.

Plenty of Youth Activities will be available, bigger and better than ever. Check it out!
