Who’s ready for the best crappie show of the year? It’s time for the 20th Annual Grizzly Jig Spring Tackle Show! They are located, at 1503 Truman Boulevard, in Caruthersville, Missouri. If you haven’t been to their new facility then you definitely need to check it out! Their new 133,000 square foot space provides more room for all the fishing gear you need for your next day on the water.
Year after year, more people from around the United States are attending this four-day event. During the Spring Tackle Show, they have multiple discounts and sales throughout the entire store on all your favorite brands. Along with the already discounted items, when you check out at the register, you get $5 off for every $30 spent, with a maximum of $20 off. Grizzly Jig stands out from the big box stores because of the knowledgeable staff and the assistance they provide to each individual customer. It is a family-owned business that prides itself on customer care. If you need a product for crappie fishing, they have it. They also carry a large selection of bluegill and catfishing gear, as well.
Their selection of crappie rods is unlike any most people have ever laid eyes on. In stock, they have B’n’M, Todd Huckabee, Ozark, Denali, Jenko, Bonehead, HH Rods, Outlaw, Mr. Crappie, and their very own Grizzly Jig signature rods, to name a few. The number of jigs, jig-making supplies, hooks, sinkers, and other terminal tackle they have in stock is a sight to behold. They have graphs, graph mounts, boat seats, seat pedestals, bait buckets, aerators, life jackets, and just about anything you can think of that any fisherman would ever need.
If such a large selection of items seems overwhelming, don’t worry, multiple pro-staff members will be there to assist you with your selection. Each day, pro-staff members will be presenting seminars on crappie fishing. This is an excellent time to hear exactly how the professionals do it. Each seminar will be on the specific technique they use to catch crappie. Pro-staffers will answer any questions you may have about crappie fishing. They will also share tips and tricks on certain techniques they use to make a living guiding and winning tournaments across the country. Some of the guest speakers this year includes, TJ Shands, Kirby Ham, Jerry Hancock, Jeff Larch, Wally Marshall, Joel Harris, Russell Gates, Todd Huckabee, Sam Heaton, Charlie Bunting, David Jones, Ronnie Capps, Steve Coleman, Wally Marshall, Russ Bailey, Tommy Ezell, Brad Chappell, and many more!
While you are checking out a seminar, don’t forget to put your name in the drawing to win multiple prizes for guided fishing trips and fishing-related products, including the Sore Lip Em All Crappie Getaway hosted by John Godwin. This is an all inclusive fishing trip sponsored by Crappie Magnet, B’n’M Poles, Hook and Bullet, and Cornfield Fishing Gear for a two night stay at the Les Smith Crappie Compound in Como, Mississippi. Winner’s will also have a chance to be featured on the Fish.Eat.Live show and receive a free pair of Hook and Bullet lenses!
