Mack’s Lure, Inc., manufacturer of the famous Wedding Ring, Smile Blade, Sling Blade, Glo Hooks and more, is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the Bi-Mart Kokanee Tank at The 2018 Sportsmen’s Shows presented by The O’Loughlins. This year’s shows will take place in Puyallup, Wash. (Jan. 24-28), Portland, Ore. (Feb. 7-11) and Redmond, Ore. (Mar. 1-4).
The 40-foot tank, which will be used for demonstrations throughout each show, will be stocked with live kokanee for the first time. Several Mack’s Lure Pro and Guide Staff members will be on hand at the Washington Sportsman’s Show (Washington State Fair Events Center, Puyallup), Pacific Northwest Sportsman’s Show (Expo Center, Portland) and the Central Oregon Sportsman’s Show (Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center, Redmond) to provide seminars on kokanee fishing techniques, trolling tactics, lure and attractor combinations, and much more.
Headlining the seminars will be Mack’s Lure’s Gary Miralles, Jeff Witkowski, Ray Bailey and Mike Hall, each of whom are one of the region’s foremost experts in all things kokanee fishing. Together, the four anglers bring with them over 200 combined years of kokanee fishing experience.
