The Timonium Show is 1/2 a boat show and other half fishing. Last year it was split in three sections. One room for saltwater, retailers in between and the other room for freshwater. I recommend going to this one if you haven't been. They have seminars every hour which include bay guides like Captain Mike Murphy and writer Mark Sosin. A lot of the local takle shops will be set up here offering discounts on everything in stock. Manufacturers like Shimano, Yo-Zuri (U.S. supplier can't remember name) and St. Croix will be on hand and offering discounts as well. Some of the pro staff will allow you to test out the gear too.
