Reel in the Sunshine Fishing Expo

February 10 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm


Sunshine Ace Hardware has announced its eighth annual Reel in the Sunshine fishing expo, a free family-friendly event being held Feb. 10 in Bonita Springs, will highlight the growing popularity of recreational fishing in Southwest Florida. 

Reel in the Sunshine features vendor-led demonstrations, product giveaways and exclusive discounts on a wide range of fishing and lifestyle gear, including fishing apparel, rods, reels, lures, hats, sunglasses and other accessories. 

The expo will feature a pair of local fishing guides and boat captains, Capt. Barry Cuda Nicholls and Capt. Chris Turner, who will share stories and expertise with attendees during keynote addresses. For those new to fishing, Nicholls will lead a “Fishing 101 for Beginners” seminar, offering valuable tips to get started, selecting waterways and choosing the right gear for a successful fishing experience. Turner, a third-generation Naples native and seasoned tournament angler, will delve into “Inshore Fishing Tactics,” exploring opportunities to increase your experience on the water.
