Expanded boat show

The Louisiana Sportsman Show scheduled for March 12-15 will provide an even greater focus on the latest boat offerings.

The Sportsman Boat Show, sponsored by Neighbors Federal Credit Union, is being held at the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales in conjunction with the Sportsman Show. It will include more than 20 boat dealers in a dedicated, 75,000-square-foot building, including brands never before at the show.

You don’t have to drive all over the place to compare what’s out there; you can simply walk through the Louisiana Sportsman Boat Show to look at all the features available in the current models of boats.

The show will include dealers’ offerings for both freshwater and saltwater fishing applications, but that’s not all. It will also have a full range of duck-hunting boats, along with kayaks and pontoons.

Brands expected at the show include Alumacraft, Axis, Bayliner, Bentley Pontoons, Berkshire Pontoons, BlackJack, Blazer, Blazer Bay, Blue Wave, Carolina Skiff, G3, Gator Trax, Hanko Aluminum, Malibu, Nautic Star, Nitro, Phoenix, Premier Pontoons, Pursuit, Ranger, SeaArk, Sea Fox, Sea Pro, Shearwater, SilverWave, Skeeter, South Bay Pontoons, South Fork, Stratos, SunTracker, Tahoe, Tidewater, Tracker, Veranda, War Eagle, Xcel, Xcursion Pontoons and Xpress.  Motor lines include Gator Tail, Mercury, MinnKota, Mud Buddy, Pro-Drive, Suzuki, Tohatsu and Yamaha.

And the best part is that entry to the Louisiana Sportsman Boat Show is included in the general admission price of the Louisiana Sportsman Show.
