For the Chicagoland crowd who enjoyw fishing at Shabbona, the names Aaron and Denny Sands are very familiar.
Shabbona Lake is one of Northern Illinois' premier bodies of water that so many anglers enjoy for open water and ice fishing.
It's been learned that Aaron and Denny Sands will be the opening act for the 3rd year in a row at the Chicagoland Fishing,Travel and Outdoor Expo at the Schaumburg Convention Center. I've sat in on their semianr and can tell you that is light, bright and up tempo. It's one that local angers will enjoy as they'll learn about how to catch fish from local water.
The show opens Thursday, January 28th at 12:00 PM. Arron and Denny will be doing their Seminar on "Bass & Walleye Fishing at Shabbona Lake" starting at 1:00 PM at Seminar Hall (Level 2).
"What an honor it is for us to host the first seminar of the show for three years in a row." Denny Sands told me.
If you're a weekend visitor to the show, they'll also be doing a seminar on Saturday, January 30th at 12:30 PM at the Seminar Hall. This is a prime time slot for them on the busiest day of the Expo.
Arron and Denny will be there every day at booth 334. Make sure you stop by and say Hi and feel free to ask questions.
The Chicagoland Fishing, Travel and Outdoor Expo is by far the most highly attended Fishing Show in Chicagoland. For more information and advance ticket purchases (No waiting in line) visit their website, just CLICK HERE.
Don't forget to stop by and see me at the Wildcat Lodge Booth (800 aisle).
