All the boat and fishing shows happening this weekend, and pics from last weekend's shows...

First, let's take a look at last weekend's shows... 

What you missed in New England
Our friends at the new nautical site, Northeast Boater, were on-site and they grabbed some pictures of both the New England Boat Show in Boston, as well as Connecticut's Northeast Fishing and Hunting Show, both of which wrapped up this past Sunday. More at NortheastBoater.com

What you missed in Miami
We just saw a headline that attendance was down slightly at this year's show, but exhibitors are saying that both sales and optimism were high. Most people and publications focus on the big yachts when they discuss the Miami Boat Show, but the folks at Florida Sportsman Magazine took a different approach. Check out their pictures from Miami of the latest boats and gear that are, let's say, more realistic for the average boater, including the brand-new Contender 25 Bay, "a dual step bayboat from the well-known offshore center-console builder."
