Sport Shows, Old School Fishing Knowledge

By: Mark Romanack


Jake and Mark Romanack will be conducting their popular Ultimate Walleye Clinics at the Ultimate Fishing Show, in Novi, Michigan, the Greater Niagara Fishing Expo, Niagara Falls and the Ultimate Sport Show in Grand Rapids Michigan this winter. Pre-registration is strongly suggested for these limited seating seminars. Contact Mari@Fishing411.net to reserve a spot at these popular seminars.


Soon a tradition among those who love the outdoor lifestyle will be upon us. The winter consumer sport shows are admittedly a little “ole school” in the eyes of some, but for many they are still a viable means of refining a person’s hunting and fishing skills.


​ The world has gone “digital” it’s true. All around us are ways to enjoy the outdoor experience without stepping outside. Blogs, podcasts, videos, television and social media all do a good job of focusing on our favorite outdoor topics. The one thing lacking however in the digital world is that face to face experience you can only get…. face to face at consumer sport shows.


​ Sport shows fill venues with like minded folks from all walks of life. Sport shows also provide an opportunity to purchase specialty items that most retailers don’t carry and new products that haven’t shown up in the mainstream retailers. Just as important, sport shows are a great excuse to hang out with fishing buddies while planning that next great outdoor adventure.


ULTIMATE FISHING SHOW NOVI, MI JANUARY 12-15, 2023

​ The Ultimate Fishing Show has grown into one of Michigan’s most respected outdoor shows. From modest beginnings, come amazing things. In the case of the UFS, this show started out as a Bass-a-Rama event in a high school gymnasium!


​ Located at the Suburban Collection Showplace, this show houses hundreds of vendor booths that cater to fishermen including Canadian outfitters, Great Lakes charter captains, tackle retailers, sonar manufacturers, ice fishing manufacturers and a huge assortment of fishing boats, motors and trailers.


​ In addition, the UFS has become known for offering a wide assortment of fishing seminars. Fishing experts from all across the nation converge at the UFS to share their knowledge through seminars focusing on walleye, bass, trout, salmon, musky, panfish, ice fishing and more.


​ Jake and Mark Romanack of Fishing 411 TV will be on hand all four days doing free daily seminars and also on Saturday doing the annual Ultimate Walleye Clinic.

A crash course in walleye fishing expertise, this popular seminar has limited seating. Guests are encouraged to pre-register by contacting Mari Romanack via Mari@Fishing411.net.


​ Guests that pre-register will receive a show pass and will also be entered into a door prize drawing held at the end of the seminar. Awesome door prizes will be provided by the sponsors of Fishing 411 TV. The Ultimate Walleye Clinic is free, but a charity donation is collected on behalf of Walleye for Wounded Heroes, Mark and Jake’s favorite charity.


GREATER NIAGARA FISHING EXPO FEBRUARY 16-19, 2023

​ The Greater Niagara Fishing Expo has been expanded from three days to four days for 2023. Fishing education is the focus of this show which literally offers “non-stop” fishing seminars, clinics and schools every day of the show.


​ Mark and Jake Romanack of Fishing 411 TV will be conducting an Ultimate Walleye Clinic on Thursday and also Saturday. The Ultimate Walleye Clinic lasts two hours long and covers a wealth of fishing topics aimed at helping anglers to be more successful.
