Pacific Coast Sportfishing Tackle, Boat, Travel and Outdoors Show Returns to Orange County Fairgrounds

ORANGE COUNTY— Excitement is building as the Pacific Coast Sportfishing Tackle, Boat, Travel and Outdoors Show (PCS) prepares for its return to the Orange County Fairgrounds from March 7-10. Now in its 14th year, the event promises to be bigger and better than ever, encompassing the entire fairgrounds complex and featuring an array of saltwater and freshwater fishing brands, sport boats, landings and top companies in the fishing industry along with vendors from the boat, tackle and travel sectors.

“We are so proud of what the show has become,” said Bill DePriest, owner of the Pacific Coast Sportfishing Tackle, Boat, Travel and Outdoors Show to the Log.  “From 2020 being in one building to three buildings in 2021 and now onto seven halls and the entire OC Fair and Event Center becoming the largest and most well attended Fishing Tackle, Boat and Travel Show in Southern California. The support of the industry and fishing community has been nothing short of amazing. The show now takes more than a day to see the whole thing and has great family activities as well.”

Expanding to cover five acres and boasting an impressive 217,000 square feet across seven halls and the main mall, the 2024 show is a testament to its ever-growing popularity. From its humble beginnings the PCS has steadily evolved, with this year’s expansion into the parking lot ensuring ample space for attendees to explore the latest boats, fishing tackle and outdoor gear.

Attendees can expect an extensive selection of boats, engines and electronics to peruse, with dealers, manufacturers and experts on hand to address inquiries and assist with purchases. From inflatables and jet skis to multimillion-dollar center consoles, there’s a vessel to suit every budget and preference.

But the PCS is more than just a boat show; it’s a full-fledged family event. Live entertainment, interactive activities and engaging seminars complement the diverse exhibitor offerings, ensuring a memorable experience for attendees of all ages. Free activities abound, including a kids’ trout pond where young anglers can test their skills and enjoy catch-and-release fishing.

With ample food vendors and plenty of opportunities to explore the latest trends and innovations in outdoor recreation, the PCS is a must-visit destination for outdoor enthusiasts across Southern California.
