The Seattle Boat Show is coming up on Jan. 27 to Feb. 5 at CenturyLink Field Event Center in downtown Seattle, and will offer more than 200 free seminars on boating and other water related activities, including 65 on fishing and crabbing.

Those who attend shouldn’t pass up checking out Tom Ohaus, a nationally recognized outdoor writer and Sitka fishing guide. He will be providing presentations to teach anglers how to improve their fishing skills for salmon, halibut, lingcod and rockfish.

“He is hands down, the most cerebral speaker on the circuit and we are excited he has joined the Seattle Boat Show fishing seminar team,” says Tony Floor, director of fishing Affairs for the Northwest Marine Trade Association. “He understands how fish think, their life histories and diet.”

During the show be sure to stop by to view the grand prize for this year’s Northwest Salmon Derby Series – a 21 foot welded aluminum River Hawk boat powered with a Mercury 150 horse 4-stroke Verado outboard motor and a Karavan galvanized trailer.

The boat also comes rigged with Scotty downriggers, Lowrance electronics and dual stereo system- The boat will be unveiled at the show, followed by 14 tournaments – beginning immediately after the show with the Roche Harbor Salmon Classic on Feb. 2-4.
