Happy New Year to EVERYONE!! After a pretty nice December where we had some historically warm weather, the New Year is off to a bad start here on Long Island. It is currently 15 degrees outside with a wind chill factor down around 5!! I’ve had enough of Winter already and we’ve only just started.
One upside to the Winter season are all of the Fishing and Boating shows that visit the Long Island area. I’m sure there are others that I have missed on the following calendar but these are the ones that I have always enjoyed attending and usually get to most of them every year. The next best thing to getting on the boat and fishing is checking out the new products from the boating and fishing industry at these shows. Have fun!!!
