Dixon, CA –Gone Fishin’ Marine in Dixon, CA plans a big kick-off to the boating season at the International Sportsmen’s Exposition Western Tour at Cal Expo in Sacramento. The second of five stops on the tour, the 22nd Annual Expo runs from January 15-18, 2009.

“After so many years of attending and staffing boat shows,” says GFM president, Mark Blanton, “we decided to change things up a little. We’re really excited about the new lineups from our manufacturers; especially the all-new JetCraft 1725 LTD. But just putting boats on display isn’t what Gone Fishin’ Marine is all about- we’re fishermen and boat owners and can share exactly what anglers want to know. Not to tip our hand, but we have some great activities and programs planned for our ISE visitors!”

In this year’s showcase, Gone Fishin’ Marine invites all comers to check out boat models for every fishing application, and so much more. From starter-level jon boats, to duck boats with mud motors; from bass boats to super-shallow jet boats; from indestructible deep v boats to coastal fishing boats, Gone Fishin’ has the right boat for pretty much any fishing or hunting use imaginable.

After a first-of the-year debut of their redesigned website and online tackle shop, Gone Fishin’ plans on several additional attractions in their boat display. Visitors can sample services and products only available through GFM- opportunities to discuss questions and problems directly with certified technicians, join owners’ clubs, sign on for fisheries conservation projects, enter a raffle to win a boat, meet and greet local angling celebrities, and enjoy some out-of-the-ordinary displays, among other exciting diversions.

Celebrating 13 years in the recreational boating and fishing business, Gone Fishin’ Marine is one of the largest full-service dealerships in Northern California. As a Marine Industry Certified Dealership, and a Boating Industry Top 100 dealer, their operation is arguably the best in the west! With an award-winning service department, fully stocked tackle shop, and full-time finance department under the same roof as their enormous new boat showroom and used boat clearance center, it is crystal clear- there is nothing the dealership can’t do for the recreational angler.

The Sacramento show opens to the public Thursday and Friday the 15th and 16th at 11AM running until 8PM. Saturday’s hours are 10AM to 7pm, and everything will wrap up Sunday the 18th between 10AM and 5PM. The show occupies and expansive portion of the Cal Expo fairgrounds at 1600 Exposition Blvd in Sacramento, CA, and boasts Northen California’s largest display and sale of sport fishing boats. With off-road and ATV test tracks, a fly-casting pond, lectures around an enormous bass aquarium tank and a youth fair devoted entirely to youngsters in outdoor sports, there is something for every member of the family at ISE Sacramento this year.
