    Default Bass Pro Shop to open soon

    I have heard they will open in early July. I am surprised not a lot of noise about their opening like there was with Cabelas. I like Bass Pro, and not just the name. Thay have lots of guns and hunting supplies as well as fishing. I'm hoping they cover some bases that Cabelas left out with their new store, such as boats and ATV's. I do believe that their prices are a tad bit lower then Cabelas. Have not heard a word about any big grand opening introduction like Cabelas did. Bud

    I am sure it will be a multi-day event with invitations and all that just like Cabela's.

    I know Bass Pro will have boats. They are going to be a dealer for Thunder Jet boats. I think having both stores open will really benefit us since they each seem to specialize in different areas. I just hope all there fishing gear doesn't have there name plastered all over it like Cabelas.

    Yup. Grass Lake Ron is correct. The vast majority of rods will be BPS rods. But why is that a problem? I have a BPS rod from the 80's I still use.

    I was hoping they'd open early since I'll be in town from the 5th-7th. Oh well. I'll just stick to their website.

    Just tell them that you are THE Alaska Swamp Man prostaffer. I'm sure that will immediately get you in front of the line and get first choice of any gear you want. Heck, I bet they won't even charge you!

    Went to Bass Pro today. Hate to say it, but I wasn't really happy with it. Tons of fishing equipment but I tried to find some salmon mooching leaders with 10 lb line (or close) and the lightest line they had was 20 tied into mooching leaders. Aquarium was small and dissapointing. They really missed the boat in what they ordered for the Alaska market. They did have a nice bow fishing rigged boat, with light set up, but not one outboard with a jet pump on it. They did have a couple ince inboards with jets, but lots of nice tracker boats with long shaft motors. No duck boats other then kyaks, they don't carry the SxS double black power shotgun they use to carry. Things in general seemed pretty expensive, but I guess thats true eveyplace. After all, I use to live in a world when you could fill you gas tank for $5 and get a couple cokes from the 5 cent coke machine with the change. Bud

    Wasn't to happy with all the selection they had. Tons of fishing stuff, even the ammo and dog training supplies kinda lacked but still a good place to go.
