As great as the store is, should we not try to support the local tackle shops that are run by a guy who loves fishing. Just a thought.

Agree, HTHM, I give JB's lotsa business. I buy from him about 6 x per year.

However, there comes a time, a good deal, gotta go for it.

Yeah we should but what do you do when you go in 3 or 4 times and he has promised you the goods but they are never there? He claims he orders 4 cases and only gets one.... So by the time his buds and the staff are done they don't have what I want, in the last 6 trips in there. I could live the 25% higher cost on the small stuff but if I drop 2 to 3 grand a year on goodies I need to save money on the bigger stuff or do without..... (which ain't going to happen) LOL

Just go on www.basspro.com and click on the box on the right for store selection and click on the outlet store. The stuff is always cheaper than our Basspro here. I've been doing it for a while now and always save a ton.

I'm with tonyb - don't need the drive (on a specified date and time) for overpriced stuff - I really don't need right now.

For a second I thought they were closing to lower prices. You know, since we're at a dollar seven above par. I know its a great store, but how about giving back what us customers gave to.
