- Mid-South Sports & Boat Show?Are you ready for some fun -- Mid-South Sports & Boat Show?
The 54th annual Mid-South Sports & Boat show is coming to the Agricenter in East Memphis on Feb. 17-18-19.
Surely, you say, nothing can last for more than 50 years? You bet it can – and it's bigger than ever with wall-to-wall boats, fishing tackle, seminars, vacation destinations and even a chance to rub shoulders with some of the Mid-South's most well-known outdoors personalities.
Noted Mid-South angler Tommy Cauley of Fish Finder Guide Service on Greers Ferry Lake near Heber Springs, Ark., will be among the featured vendors and seminar speakers. Among the topics Cauley will also talk about is the Tennessee-based Cricket Rocket and, for sure, tips on how to fish Greers Ferry Lake.
"The Professor," Wilson Frazier of Frazier Marine Group will conduct seminars on Sonar and GPS. With more than 30 years of Pro-Staff and technician work for Lowrance, Frazier started developing products that would help aid him in his work. Eventually this led to developing products for the average consumer as well as the pros.
Big Joe Napier of Springville, Tenn., will talk spring bass fishing with seminars at 6 p.m. on Feb. 17, 3 p.m. on Feb. 18 and 11 a.m. on Feb. 19. Napier is a cancer-survivor who has taken his love of fishing to the highest level.
"You see life has been hard but I never give up and I am still alive even after cancer tried to take my life at the age of 6 months," Napier says on his web site (www.bigjimnapier.net). "From a mother who never gave up and said this baby will live if it's the last thing I do in life and I owe everything to her."
You will not want to miss Napier's story.
And then there is the guru of Mid-South bassing – Ron Wong. He will be showcasing the new products from Lew's during his two seminars.
