The 5th annual Northshore Boat-N-Fishing Show at the Northshore Harbor Center in Slidell includes boat and outdoor gear exhibitors, kids’ activities, lectures with professional fishing guides and marina owners, door prizes and family fun.

Presented by Lakeshore Marina & Yacht Harbor and Marsh & Bayou Magazine, the Northshore Boat-N-Fishing Show opens on Friday, March 18, from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m.; Saturday, March 19, from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.; and on Sunday, March 20, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. General admission is $10 with plenty of free parking. Coupons and information can be found at

Seminars will be held throughout the show, and everyone can learn tips on fishing, kayaking, cooking, boat maintenance and other topics that can enhance their outdoor experience.

Redfish anglers will have the opportunity to enter the Louisiana Saltwater Series' redfish tournament. Tournament director Sam Barbera recently announced that this will be the first time that the series has allowed a "trailer to your launch" tournament. All teams will have a boat check very early on Saturday morning, and then they can drive and launch to any location and have to be back to the parking lot by 3 p.m.

The weigh-in will be live, on stage as part of the show. After teams have weighed in their fish, they will be available for show attendees to talk to and maybe pick up a tip or two. For entry information, go to the website,

The event features the second "Rice and Spice Jambalaya cook off", sponsored by Pontchartrain Ace Hardware, in cooperation with Toyota of Slidell. The winning team will carry home a first place trophy, along with a Cajun Classic 20-gallon cooking pot setup, valued at $500.

All teams will be judged by experienced cooking judges, as well as judged by attendees on Saturday afternoon in the "Peoples Choice." This means that everyone attending the show on Saturday from noon until the jambalaya runs out will have an opportunity to sample all of the entries and vote on their favorite team.

Teams can register at Pontchartrain Ace, located at 13320 Pontchartrain Drive in Slidell. An entry fee is $50 per team. Contact Mike Siebenkittel at Ace, 985.643.4672 to enter.
