If you’re even thinking about buying a new boat, the Louisiana Sportsman Boat Show is focused on all the latest boat manufacturer offerings in one convenient place.

Sponsored by Essential Federal Credit Union, the Sportsman Boat Show will be held this Thursday through Sunday, March 12-15, at the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales in conjunction with the Louisiana Sportsman Show.

It will include 15 boat dealers in a dedicated 75,000-square-foot building.

“I think it’s safe to say that every major boat line and outboard manufacturer will be represented,” show organizer Jack Fisher said. “So you don’t have to drive all over the place to compare what is out there — you can simply walk through the Louisiana Sports- man Boat Show to look at all the features available in the current models of boats.”

The show will include dealers’ offerings for both fresh and saltwater fishing applications, but that’s not all.

“We’ll also have a full range of duck-hunting boats, along withkayaks,” Fisher said.

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

“This way, you can check out all the boats, but move back and forth to the main show to see what fishing tackle and hunting accessories are available,” Fisher said. “You also can check out all the special events, like the Louisiana Sportsman Big Buck Contest, the 40-foot Bass Tub, Splash Dogs, Yamaha Test Track, archery shoots and the jambalaya cook-off

“And it’s all available for one price - just $10 per day.”
