I too was a bit dissapointed by the show. It was pretty small. I admit, I did see a couple decent seminars, and my wife got a cast net lesson. I just don't understand why they have to charge $5 for parking on top of the $8 admission. For my wife and I to attend, with 1 coupon out of my Florida Sportsman, I was out $19 walking in the door. As I left I was wishing I had braved the morning wind and gone fishing instead. So it goes.
