Daddy Mac Expo Season – Updates, Thank you’s, and Upcoming Expos & Seminars – 03/23/2016

Well, our crazy fishing Expo season is in full swing! We’ve had a busy couple of months here at Daddy Mac Lures with nine expos under our belts from January to present!

We’d like to take the time to share information regarding our expo season, and to thank so many people who have helped us along the way.

(scroll down for a list of upcoming expos and appearances)

Co-owners Dennis “Daddy Mac” MacDonald and Jack Houghton have been working tirelessly to promote Daddy Mac Lures and get our incredible lures into the hands of as many fishermen as possible. The outpouring of support and loyalty to our brand has made every effort worthwhile.

We’d like to thank all of the organizers and event planners for the following expo events, as well as the thousands of Daddy Mac customers and fans who stopped by our booths to say hello and get a head start on stocking up on their Daddy Macs for the upcoming season:

We were fortunate to speak at many of these events, with co-owner and one of the leading Northeast vertical jigging experts Captain Jack Houghton presenting seminars on Vertical Jigging for Striped Bass.

We’d like to thank the following Expos for the opportunity to present:

New England Fishing & Outdoor Expo

Springfield Sportsmen’s Show

New England Saltwater Fishing Show

World Fishing & Outdoor Expo

The Saltwater Fishing Expo

Massachusetts Striped Bass Association Expo

A special thanks to the New England Fishing & Outdoor Expo and the World Fishing & Outdoor Expo for allowing us to do a swimming demo of our big swim baits (our patent protected Viper Series lures) in the Hawg Troughs!  The responses and feedback we got never ceases to amaze us!

We would also like to thank our incredibly knowledgeable and dedicated Pro-Staff members Tim Moore of Tim Moore Outdoors and Richard Yvon of Twin Maple Outdoors for representing Daddy Mac Lures at the Kittery Trading Post Spring Fish ‘n Hunt sale in Kittery, Maine March 17th – 20th. They did an outstanding job.  We would also like to thank Kittery Trading Post for an unbelievable 2015 season, and a tremendous start already to an even better 2016 season!

We pride ourselves on having the most talented and loyal Pro-Staff team here at Daddy Mac Lures. Newest Pro-Staffers Richard Yvon and David Riley were a huge asset at many of our expo shows this year, and we thank them for their hard work and commitment to Daddy Mac Lures.  We look forward to a great future with these upstanding and talented guys on board.

We would also like to thank Matt Dempsey, Donald Hobart and Colton McGrath for attending every show as part of the Daddy Mac Team. Without their dedication and hard work setting up for shows, working the booths, and breaking down after every event, we never would have seen such an unprecedented and successful expo season. A special thanks to Donald Hobart for months of behind the scenes labor and preparation along with co-owners Dennis “Daddy Mac” and Jack.

Finally, a big thanks to our friends and supporters Field Staffer James “Squid” Young, Jim Smith, Dan Thissel and Phil Belcher for assisting Daddy Mac Lures with packaging in preparation for the show season.

It is a team effort here at Daddy Mac Lures, and we feel honored to have so many supportive and loyal friends, family and Pro-Staffers in our circle.
