Cabelas "After Hours" Sale

Recommended Posts

PFUNK

Anybody else get an invite to attend this sale on Sunday the 16th? I got an invite in the mail because I'm a Club Visa holder and I'm just curious if the "employee pricing" is worth it? Sounds like you may get decent deals on clothing, especially the Cabelas branded stuff? Also food and drinks provided. I imagine there is a pretty good crowd. Is it worth the 50 mile drive for me?

Not worth it. Many of the sale prices are better than the employee pricing. Lines are insane I'm not going

That's funny I always find great deals. I got a OTTER XT1200 Lodge for the employee price of 824.99 regular 969.99, a 145.00 off seems like a good deal. It all depends on what you buy, cabelas brand items have the most discount, guns and electronics have the least amount. Then you use the 20 off coupon, and that brings it down to $804.99.....

Have a friend that works for Cabela's...hard goods (guns, augers, blinds, decoys etc.) are least discount (typically 10%-15%). Soft goods (clothes) are biggest discount of around 25%-30% with Cabela's brand being the biggest discount.

There are certain 'deals' to be had...but for the most part not as good as regular flier sales.

I saw the following somewhere about Veterans Day Pricing. Check before you go, just in case my info is wrong.

Cabela’s is giving their standard employee discount to all US military veterans, active duty military, Guard/Reserves, law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel. Discount varies from 5% to 20%, depending on the item.

Flyer deals may be just as good or better than some of the discounts, but don't forget that there are limited items in the flyers vs. getting EVERYTHING for a discount. Some things never go on sale so the card holder nights are a great way to take advantage of getting something you want for less money. Standard employee discount runs 10%-25% depending on brand and item. Yes, hard items tend to be in the 10-15% range, but most all clothes go for 20-25% off so it's a great time to pick up some cold weather gear for less. Lines are long yes, but don't be in a hurry and you'll enjoy the time there and pick up some good deals.

I've went the last couple years when they offered the employee pricing. It is a good deal if there are things you need that rarely go on sale. Also gives you an excuse to make the drive to Cabelas...

50 miles isn't that far anymore. If you need something from Cabelas then it will be worth it. At the very least it's time spent checking things out.

Report back on what you thought of the sale.

Well the sale was alright. Nothing great, but I needed a couple things and I was happy with what I paid. Lines to check out were insanely long. They wrappred from the registers all the way to the back past the bargain cave and boot sections. We just took our time and waited for them to die down while we snacked on the free food which was pretty good. The discounts on hard goods were a little lower, usually in the 10% range. Clothing was closer to 20% from what I could gather. I ended up leaving with a pair of Lacrosse aerohead boots, a couple shimano sienna 500's, and a neck gaiter for $160. This was with an extra $20 off that they let me stack on top of the employee pricing. Usually they don't let you stack coupons so that was nice.

      Got on a pretty decent bite this weekend.   Lots of quality eating size fish 14-18" mostly,  a few bigger ones.  Fish were in main basin steep drop-offs in 20-30 feet.  Crawlers and leeches were working.  Weather was beautiful all weekend.  Can't wait to come back up in August!

      We did okay in Frazer over the weekend. Some nice 15's and 16's and tons of the smaller walleyes. For some reason I usually catch the smaller ones clean, but I throat hooked a ton this weekend. Just couldn't feel their bites, so I'm guessing they had plenty of time to try to swallow the bait. 17-22 worked best for us with Lindy's and seemed leeches outperformed crawlers about 2-1

      Water is pretty high on Vermilion for this time of the year. We were up over the weekend and got another 2 1/2 inches of rain!

      After a long 13 days straight of work we got out and did a little fishing!  Felt AMAZING to get back out on the water.  We chased panfish Saturday evening and pretty much struck out and went Sunday with the old man and got into a big ol mess of panfish.  Buddy of mine opened up his jig company in Vergas, MN and it's called Panfish Pirates, check him out on facebook.  Hes got a soft plastic called the Kraken that I have never seen before and boy did the fish eat them up!  We didn't use any live bait during the 6 hour trip out fishing and we landed hundreds of gills and crappies.  We landed 6 gills that were 9.5" sadly we couldn't find any big crappies even though the girlfriend lost one at the boat that was over 13".  Fish were on the edges of the weeds either lilly pads or down in the cabbage.  This Kraken has 3 legs behind it and it has natural bouyance within the plastic and it allows the jig to be swam through the weeds slower which was key yesterday.  Dad was in the front of the boat and a few times he had to stop and put his rod down because his arm hurt from fighting the fish and a few times his finger tips were hurting from taking the fish off of his hook but regardless he had a blast fishing.  We used 6 mm jigs tipped with the Kraken pitching from 4-14 feet of water.  Few times we were vertical jigging and my big blue gill pictured below came vertical jigging in about 12 feet of water.  All the gills were returned safely and only 6-7 crappies were taken home for dad to have a fish fry.  Pike must have been starving because I had about 6 blue gills get attacked by pike at the boat as i was bringing them in!

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.
    • delcecchi
      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.
