Last weekend we attended and exhibited at the North East Florida Realtors Association charity bass event in Palatka. It was an interesting day but frankly proof positive that the economy is not yet recovered regardless of what the media might say. Few lookers and no buyers for almost all of the folks showing products. The price of gas was a topic since we all know boats burn it very quickly and those big bass boats do use it quickly. Sure better than even 5 years ago but fishing trips by power boat are expensive and getting to be out of reach for a load of people. Kayak fishing is getting a hard look by many an anglers with the gas costs. Those were the type of things discussed. The RV folks that came along to talk were really feeling the pinch. A number of them mentioned their rigs were currently parked and would stay that way for some time to come. All in all we did have a nice time though, just wish a few more Emmrods had found a new home.
