Progressive Saltwater Fishing Expo will host seminars led by well-known anglers

The Progressive Saltwater Fishing Expo will return to the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center March 15-17.

The event features more than 230 exhibitors displaying boats and products, and others offering services such as charters and outfitter bookings.

“We have an amazing show planned this year in Edison, and there’s no better place to stock up on gear and shop deals on hundreds of products ahead of the saltwater angling season,” said show manager Tod Alberto in a statement. “With all of the incredible seminars, speakers and activities on the schedule for this year’s show, it’s the perfect place to prepare for a successful day on the water, whether you’re a seasoned pro or novice angler.”

Seminar speakers include Paul Hebert and Dave Carraro of National Geographic’s show, Wicked Tuna; Capt. Al Ristori, editor of Salt Water Sportsman and The Star-Ledger; Nick Honachefsky, previous IGFA All Tackle world record holder; Capt. Frank Crescitelli, from the show, The Fin Chasers; and Jim Freda.

They will address topics like surf casting, inshore fishing, offshore and canyon fishing, bait rigging, rod building and repair, and travel charters.
