      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast.

Gander Mtn. Low Price Guarantee

Question

Scott M

I saw a reel I've been meaning to buy on an internet sale from one of Gander's big competitors. Would they honor their low price guarantee with this, or is it only print ads? Thanks....

Most places wont price match Internet offers. Most wont even match there own price if its lower on the net.

I beg to differ!!! This last winter I was in the market for 2 ATV covers. The place I found them and the price was right, so I ordered. "Item not available" for like 45 days. I copied the internet page and took it to Gander, Came home with the IDENTICAL item that was in the catalog! AND, that was with the salesmans' supervisors blessing!!It was a $50 saving!! If you're in "doubt", I can show you the ad and the receipt. Go ahead, copy the internet ad and take it in. The worst that can happen is one may say "no", go back after that shift ends and your "luck" may change. Phred52

Scheels also told me they would match internet prices. I did not actually try it though to see if they would follow through with the offer.

Print off the add and bring it in. They should match it.

Cabelas and Sportsmans Warehouse price matched trail cameras from the internet. I don't see why GM wouldn't price match from online.

Bass Pro will match their own internet prices at their retail stores. I did it just yesterday. I'm not sure if they'll match competitors internet prices. It's worth a try, what do I have to lose? Cabelas just opened a new store here last Friday, so their prices on the net would be easiest to justify matching by Bass Pro.

Cabelas just matched a Reeds internet price for me on a new reel. I printed off the add & brought it in; they just called Reeds to confirm the item was in stock & matched it no problem.

Just 2 weeks ago Gander Mt. EP priced matched a lowrance x135 for me on an internet only sale from cabela's, saved me a $100 bucks. The cashier explained to me that this was a new thing, that they never used to do this in the past but now they do, something about new management. Needless to say I was very impressed with GM. smile.gif

Since when did Cabelas start to price match?

Sutty,

I have not been to the Bass Pro in Branson as I understand it is about 40,000 square feet.

I know the one in Springfield is larger than that, I just found that it is 310,000 square feet. I've been there, it's HUGE. It really is like nothing else! It also has a catalog outlet store next to it.The store in St. Charles, MO (closest Bass Pro to me)is 72,000 square feet.

Cabelas just opened a 130,000 square foot store in Hazelwood, Mo which is even closer to me. It opened alst Friday (the 13th) I haven't been there yet.

Dang it I should have made the trip than. I new it was bigger but did not know it was that big. I thought is was kind of funny though that the aquarium in Bass Pro had trout not bass...

Sutty,

I'm sure that the aquarium had trout in it because of Lake Taneycomo. Lake Taneycomo is pretty much a trout fishery. Bass Pro's website says that the Branson is a tribute to the White River, Taneycomo, Bull Shoals, Table Rock etc. Sounds like they are keying in on the trout fisherman.

I was in the new Eden Prairie Gander Mtn store for their grand opening event. I have to say that I was very disapointed in the store. I live very close to the Lakeville store so maybe I'm spoiled, but their selection was so limited on so many items!

I just got back from GM during my lunch hour and was looking for a baitcasting reel and all I can say is "what selection". Sorry but I just have to say it. Normally I don't like to criticize about a business but it was not looking good. They seem very competative on the clothing but when it comes to reels, lures, and terminal tackle they fall a little short. Well look at it this way there's always room for growth.

Gander matched the price on my Aqua view from a Cabelas internet ad. I told them about the ad and they looked it up on the computer right at the customer service desk.

It would seem that price matching has relaxed quite a bit. It did not work for me but that was over a year ago and have not tried since so I will try again sometime.

Maybe with all the competition around now the stores were kinda forced to start being a little more relaxed on this.

I do know that when I receive sales offers from cabelas in my email some are for Internet only and some are in store only and some are for both. Go figure.

Gander in Maple Grove this spring honored the sales price on Rapalas from Fleet Farm and yesterday I brought in the sales flyer from Joe's that I printed off the internet to Cabela's in Rogers and they matched the price on the Berkley crank baits. One thing that I really like about Gander is their return policy on their products. I have two of their guide series rods that have broken while fall trolling on Mille Lacs...I no longer had the receipts for either rod, but they took them back and replaced them at no charge. This kind of customer service certainly makes me want to continue to shop there. Now if they only would restock their fishing supplies after the first two weeks of the season, but that's a whole nother story!!!

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.
