The action at ICAST 2022 continued on Super Tuesday with the Annual ICAST On the Water Event held at the North Concourse Pond area of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando Florida.

Despite the blistering mid-day temps and typical high humidity, a number of companies and their representatives were out showcasing some of the latest fishing gear for 2023 prior to voting taking place at the New Product Showcase.

Here are just a few items I found interesting:
