Pelagic Fishing Expo Kicks Off Season in Socal
Good vibes and great weather greeted all who attended the Inaugural Pelagic Fishing Expo last weekend, hosted at PELAGIC's California Flagship store in Costa Mesa, CA. Music, food, games, raffles, giveaways and more made for a fun-filled way to kick off the summer fishing season.
A huge thank you to our Expo vendors: Excel Sportfishing, Cedros Sportfishing, Seeker Rods, Davey's Locker Sportfishing, Newport Landing Sportfishing, Bear Flag Fish Co., Peter J Gyotaku Art and Sonny Jones from the Red Rooster III.
Enjoy photos from the event below and stay tuned for future events at PELAGIC!
The PELAGIC Cornhole game was a hit as patrons took their best shot to win a PELAGIC prize. // Tent city in the PELAGIC HQ parking lot
PelagicGIRL Marissa Everhart assisted Expo-goers in signing up for a chance to win an 8-day trip on the Excel or a 5-day trip with Cedros Sportfishing.
Seeker was on hand showcasing their rod line and gave the opportunity for anglers to pull on their latest offerings.
No one went hungry that's for sure as Bear Flag Fish Co. set up shop and were slangin' the best fish tacos, burritos and poke around from their iconic food truck.
Raffles were announced every half-hour, with prizes including hats, tees, lures, gloves, Aquapak backpacks and duffels, from PELAGIC, as well as vendor prizes including: rods and apparel from Seeker Rods; Gyotaku prints from Peter J Art; fishing trips from Davey's Locker and Newport Landing; and Ballyhood Lures from Sonny Jones and Red Rooster III
Our California Flagship store features the largest selection of PELAGIC products under one roof! // The atrium entrance features 1,000-pound giant marlin and tuna mounts where patrons can take their photo at the official weigh station.
Patrons browsed the extensive selection of PELAGIC products, such as gaffs, rods and lures, as well as our best-selling fishing shorts, shirts, polarized sunglasses, outerwear, and accessories throughout the event.
