       Re: The Bart Hall Show at the Del Mar Fairgrounds Starts Today, February 15, 2024!

      Hello All,

      Just a quick reminder that the Bart Hall Show in Del Mar starts today and runs through Sunday, February 18, 2024.  I hope you can attend and want to let you know that the booth number is #414.  We are adjacent to the double wide sized booth for the Dan Hernandez show and are across the isle and not far down the isle from the large space occupied by Costa Sunglasses. 

     I am expecting another great Bart Hall Show and hope you can come out and enjoy the show.  If you can attend, please stop by the booth to say hello, take advantage of the show specials on web site subscriptions and maybe pick up a t-shirt or two.  It is a chance to get show specials on our goods and services that are still available at pre-covid era prices.  I have a brand new insulated fish bag for sale as well.

     All the details about the show are at the Bart Hall Show web site at and you can buy your tickets on their web site as well.

     I hope to see you at the show!

     Thanks very much,

      Bob Vanian

The Bart Hall Show in San Diego is at the Del Mar Fairgrounds from Thursday, February 15, 2024 through Sunday, February 18, 2024!

     The Bart Hall Show in San Diego at the Del Mar Fairgrounds is back again in 2024!  The show begins on Thursday, February 15, 2024 and runs through Sunday, February 18, 2024.  Show hours are noon until 7:00 PM on Thursday and Friday, 10:00 AM until 7:00 PM on Saturday and the show goes from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM on Sunday. 

        The Hall Shows have traditionally been the greatest fishing and boating shows in the San Diego area and there is every reason to think that this year’s Bart Hall Show will live up to that same high standard. I hope you can attend and share in the fun!  The Del Mar Hall shows have been known for a casual and relaxed atmosphere where exhibitors have time to talk with customers in a non rushed atmosphere.

    The Bart Hall Show has something for the whole family with plenty of things for kids to do including a free trout pond.  Kids 15 years old and younger get into the show for FREE with a paid adult ticket and can fish for free at the Mammoth Lakes Kids Free Trout Pond!  Other great kid’s activities include the Ultimate Air Dogs presented by Turner’s Outdoorsman, the Jon Petty Goldsmith and Convict Lakes Resort American Duck Races and the Okuma Bass Tank.

     I hope you can come to the Bart Hall Show in Del Mar and if you do, please stop by the 976-Bite booth to say hello and take advantage of the show specials on web site subscriptions, pocket t-shirts and men’s and ladies tank tops.  We offer a fantastic deal prior to factoring in the show specials as we have maintained our pre-covid era prices on all we offer!

      A tip to help you avoid a possible ticket line is to get your tickets ahead of time over the Internet at . Their web site is loaded with information about the show including directions.

     The cost is $17 for a regular adult ticket and as stated above, kids 15 years old and younger get in for free with a paid adult.  A ticket for someone with a valid military identification is $15 and it is also $15 for a senior’s ticket (62+years).  The military and senior’s tickets must be purchased in person at the ticket window showing valid identification.

    The Hall Shows are always fun and informative and this year should be no exception.  Come see the latest in fishing tackle, boats, RV’s, vacation offers and much more. 

     There are numerous free seminars during the show and there is information about seminars on the Bart Hall Shows Facebook page at As the show approaches they may also be posting a schedule of seminars on the web site. The four seminar stages are the Accurate Stage, the Okuma Bass Tank Stage, the Daiwa Stage and the Mammoth Lakes Stage.

     At the booth I will be offering special incentives on web site subscriptions and renewals that are still at pre-covid era prices. I will also have high quality 976-Bite pocket t-shirts and men’s and lady’s tank tops for sale at bargain prices.  Included in the t-shirt offerings are a limited number of the “old school” 976-Bite logo only shirts.

    Even if you do not need to renew your subscription to right now, we can add the time to your existing subscription so you can take advantage of the pre-covid era pricing and the show specials.  If you are not ready to fish right now, you also have the option of buying your subscription at the show to get the show incentives and having me activate the subscription for you at a later date of your choosing.  Even if it is just to say hello, I really enjoy seeing you in person!

     The Del Mar Bart Hall Show will symbolize the beginning of the new fishing season as anglers gather to gear up for the fishing season that lies ahead.   It is time to think about and prepare for the upcoming fishing season and I hope to see you at the show!
