Although Texas offers near year around boating, water sports and fishing opportunities, the first couple months of the year can be inclement. But, there are still plenty of things to keep boaters and water sport enthusiasts busy in the way of boat shows. Across the state, early 2015 is a virtual non-stop carousel of boat shows and exhibitions.

The largest of these shows, the Houston International Boat, Sport and Travel Show kicks off January 2, 2015 and lasts for 10 days. Held at Reliant Center, the Houston Boat Show draws over 150,000 visitors, each of whom are treated to an eyeful of the newest boats, travel trailers, rvs, watercraft, camping equipment, fishing tackle and more.

Held at Austin Convention Center, the Austin Boat Show overlaps the last weekend of the Houston Boat Show ends, running January 8-11, giving visitors to the Lone Star State an opportunity to take in two of the largest boat shows in the nation.

This year’s version of the San Antonio Boat Show runs from January 29 - February at the Alamodome. During the four-day show, San Antonio area residents and visitors are treated to a wide-array of boats and watercraft, as well as fishing tackle and boating accessories.

The Dallas Boat Show kicks off the first weekend of February. The Dallas Boat Show features an impressive display of boats, accessories, personal watercraft and fishing tackle, as well as informative seminars.

These are but a few of the largest boat shows and expos going on throughout winter and spring. So, if you are a fishermen, boater, or water sport fanatic, make plans to attend one of these premier events – but be prepared to see more than you can possible take home with you.
