ICAST 2018 (the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades annual show) in Orlando has come and gone, but it’ll make a lasting impression on American anglers.
The 61st ICAST, held July 11-13 on 220,000 square feet of floor space in the Orange County Convention Center, showcase the newest and best gear the sportfishing world has to offer — from hooks, lines and sinkers to high-tech electronics.
Game & Fish’s Dr. Todd Kuhn took to the floor to capture some of what intrigued him most at the big show:
