Fishing is America’s most popular recreational pastime, and your angling passion is the inspiration behind Tackle Town – the 70,000 square-foot all-things-angling marketplace greeting all visitors as they enter the Ford, Indianapolis Boat, Sport and Travel Show.
Remember the huge boxes you like to rummage through at the back of your local tackle shop? You never know what little gems may be waiting for you in there until you’ve made it all the way to the bottom. We’re kind of like that, but with a handy exhibitor list and directory. Like your neighborhood bait shop on steroids, Tackle Town shows visitors over 100 unique exhibitors offering cutting edge, hard-to-find fishing tackle, gear and accessories at special show prices.
Of course, there’s more than fishing tackle at Tackle Town. You’ll also find boating accessories and fiberglass repair and restoration. Learn the latest tricks and techniques from the nation’s top fishing pros at daily seminars conducted atop the 4,000-gallon Hawg Trough – a massive aquarium loaded with all manner of lunker gamefish. Need more angling intel? You control the topics of discussion at our innovative, Fishing Camp: Ask the Pros interactive seminar series.
Tackle Town has everything for the fisherman or fishing family, including charter fishing captains and guides who can take you to the big ones, the Kids’ Zone, and an incredible array of other interesting events and attractions. If Tackle Town doesn’t have what you are looking for, then neither does anyone else!
