2019 Wisconsin Fishing Expo: February 22-24

Wisconsin Fishing Expo Expands AGAIN!

The Wisconsin Fishing Expo added a second floor of awesome fishing and hunted related wildlife art and goods a couple years ago as well as a new Kayak Corridor…For 2019 WFE we have added more booths upstairs from a variety of new vendors and added booths downstairs too.

Consumers can still expect mom-and-pop fishing vendors with gear that anglers simply can’t find at box stores, and there will also be a tremendous presence from some of the leading national brands in the fishing industry, like: Beaver Dam, ACME, Daiwa, Livingston, Okuma, Gamakatsu, Garmin, St. Croix, and many, many more. As for boats, over 20 brands will be ready to sell from top brands like Crestliner, Alumacraft, Bass Cat, Yar Craft, Tracker, Ranger, Triton, Smoker Craft, Bennington, Angler Qwest and others.

It doesn’t matter if a person is new to fishing or an advanced angler—there is something for EVERYONE at the WFE!
