Thank you to all of you who helped make the 2016 Madison Fishing Expo another success, see you in 2017 for the NEWLY SPAWNED Wisconsin Fishing Expo show!

The Wisconsin Fishing Expo was “spawned” from The Madison Fishing Expo, the largest consumer fishing show in the Midwest, which began over 30 years ago.  Each year, 20,000 attendees pack the Alliant Energy Center Exposition Hall, in Madison, Wisconsin to enjoy this annual fishing tradition.  The Expo is, itself, an annual event that helps promote the sport of fishing to enthusiasts of all ages.  Today, more than ever, it is important to understand that a fishing rod is a tool that will inspire wholesome family memories in a way that video games or smart phones can’t touch.  And, while you will find hundreds of exhibits – including hard to find lures, leading brands in the industry, great deals on boats, and fishing trips of a lifetime- attendees will also have the chance to enjoy one-on-one time with members of the leading nonprofit fishing clubs from across the state, each one eager to help attendees improve their fishing skills for a lifetime.

The Wisconsin Fishing Expo experience doesn’t just offer products and services, but an avenue to make fishing a lifetime hobby that will help families stick together.  In fact, portions of the proceeds from the show even help fund projects that make fishing better right here in the State of Wisconsin.
