Milwaukee Muskie Expo

If you've never been to a muskie show, and you've got muskie fever while the ice is out, attending a muskie show is really worth the price of admission.

The Milwaukee Muskie show is a great one held every year at State Fair Park. And, if you live near Illinois, another good show is the Chicago Muskie Show. For 10 bucks, there's a lot to see. New lures, rods, reels, boats, and of course, there's the muskie tank.

At last year's show I was lucky enough to watch Pete Maina do some demos at the muskie tank. There's nothing like listening to the pros to get some good advice. Here's a breakdown on some of the events at the show:
