The best way to cope with the freezing temps over the weekend was to head to the Springfield Boat Show! Nothing like wandering around and checking out all the cool new boats, fishing gear, and talking all things boating, to help get your mind right. You never know who you might run into as well.

It was good to catch up with a former Ozarks Outdoors podcast guest and Major League Fishing pro, James Watson. He says he’ll be back in the studio soon to update us on the upcoming 2024 MLF season. This year’s show featured boats of all kinds! Everything from cruisers, pontoons, to kayaks and more!

It’s that time of the year. Boat Shows, Fishing Expo’s, Sports Shows, and more are coming soon! Get out and support as many of these events as you can. Not only does it help cure a case of “cabin fever” it’s also a reminder that winter won’t be here forever and that spring’s right around the corner!
