31st Annual Fishing Lure Show

February 3 @ 7:00 am - 4:00 pm

Show Hosts: Casey Jones and Bill Bates

The 31st annual Carthage Show will be held on Saturday February 3, 2018 starting at 7:00 am, at the same location as last year. The Fairview Christian Church is bigger, brighter and gives us room to expand for the future. It is on the south side of Carthage, yet easy to find and maps will be provided. The public is invited to bring in tackle for identification and appraisal from 9:00 to 11:00. The host hotel is the same as last year.. We will be at the Quality Inn and Suites – Precious Moments Hotel, details below. This hotel is close to our show and more spacious, with more rooms and an elevator to the second floor. We also plan to have a hospitality room set up at the hotel around 4:00 pm on Friday.
