Recommended Posts

Kaz

I just heard they are building a new Cabala's in Rogers, I94 & Hwy 101.. WOW is that ever going to be great!! It's suppose to be larger and GRANDER than Owatonna. Also I undrstand that Dick's Sporting Goods is also coming to the Twin Cities area. I visited a Dick's in Myrtle Beach SC and I was impressed. Lots of fishing gear and the prices were very GOOD too. Looks like we will have more choices than we can handle...LOL... Looking forward to the new stores... Kaz

We live in St. Michael and my wife is already getting nervous! She spends too much time in Kohls and Target there, it's about time I get to get even! I hate to have to drive a half hour to get to a decent sporting goods place.

Here's the scoop

Press Release: Rogers, MN (January 6, 2005)

CABELA'S IN NEGOTIATIONS TO BUILD GIGANTIC

DESTINATION/ENTERTAINMENT OUTDOOR GEAR STORE IN ROGERS, MINNESOTA

SIDNEY, NE - Cabela's Incorporated (NYSE: CAB), the World's Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, announced today it is in negotiations to build an approximately 185,000-square-foot destination/entertainment outdoor gear store in Rogers, Minnesota. The superstore, which would be the largest outdoor sports store in the state, is planned for opening late this fall or early in the spring of 2006.

The store, which would be built on approximately 40 acres of a 55-acre site about 10 miles northwest of Minneapolis near the intersection of Interstate 94 and Minnesota Highway 101, would be Cabela's third store in Minnesota. Cabela's opened a 159,000-square-foot store in Owatonna in 1998 and a 59,000-square-foot store in East Grand Forks in 1999.

"Our comprehensive market research showed that Rogers is an ideal location and such a great opportunity for Cabela's that it just makes sense for us to add a third store in the state," said Cabela's President and Chief Executive Officer Dennis Highby, a native Minnesotan. "With the success of our Owatonna and East Grand Forks stores, Minnesota continues to be a large and growing market for us. This is an opportunity for us to offer more of our world-famous products and customer service to our great customers who live in Minnesota, as well as to the thousands of hunters and anglers who travel to and through Minnesota each year."

This store would be in the ideal location, in the midst of a concentration of Cabela's customers and adjacent to the well-traveled I-94/Highway 101 intersection, which serves as the gateway to the huge expanse of sporting opportunities in the middle and upper regions of the state - including Mille Lacs and the entire Minnesota lake country famous for its hunting, fishing, water sports, resorts and summer homes, as well as ice-fishing and winter sports when the weather turns cold, Highby said. And that's not to mention the thousands of people who pass through, traveling to the Canadian Shield, with its expanse of lakes, woods and fishing and hunting opportunities, he said.

To operate the new store, Cabela's would employ as many as 350 to 400 people who will join the Cabela's family of more than 9,300 employees. Employees are expected to come from Rogers and the surrounding area to join Cabela's family of staff members famous for their outdoor lifestyle and intimate knowledge of outdoor products.

"We know from experience that Minnesotans are hardworking, loyal and dependable employees," Highby said. "They have a solid work ethic and, with their knowledge of and passion for the outdoors, they make a great addition to the Cabela's family."

"We have been welcomed warmly in Minnesota and feel we are already a part of the state and its culture," Highby said. "We are confident this store will be a huge economic boon to Rogers and the surrounding area."

Though the site has been identified and a real estate contract inked, there are still several details to work out before the store can become a reality, Highby said. If an agreement is reached, construction is expected to begin as soon as possible.

The new store will complement the Owatonna and East Grand Forks stores. The Owatonna store continues to grow, serving the southern part of the state as well as those traveling from the Midwest to the Twin Cities and points north. The East Grand Forks store similarly serves its own customer base in western Minnesota, the Dakotas and Canada - as well as those traveling to those areas.

"Even though the Rogers store will be 90 miles north of our Owatonna store, which is the second largest tourist attraction in Minnesota, our customers have been urging and encouraging us to build a store on the north side of Minneapolis so they can have even more access to Minnesota's largest selection of outdoor equipment and our world-famous customer service," said Mike Callahan, Cabela's Senior Vice President of Retail Operations and Marketing.

Cabela's currently has 10 retail locations. The newest, a 176,000-square-foot facility in Wheeling, W.Va., opened in August of 2004. Currently under construction are a 230,000-square-foot store in Fort Worth, Texas; a 185,000-square-foot store in Buda, Texas; and a 150,000-square-foot store in Lehi, Utah. Cabela's has also announced plans to build a store in Wheat Ridge, Colo., in 2006, and another in East Rutherford, N.J., in 2007.

The Rogers store would be built in Cabela's trademark style that evokes the look, feel and atmosphere of the outdoors. Cabela's stores are known as top-notch educational and entertainment attractions, mixing a décor of museum-quality animal displays with colorful dioramas, huge aquariums stocked with native fish and a centerpiece indoor mountain displaying trophy animals interacting in realistic re-creations of their natural habitats.

Cabela's stores are known as destination stores, drawing customers not only from the local area, but also from hundreds of miles away. Many traveling sportsmen and women are also attracted by the familiar Cabela's script logo and the Company's world-famous reputation for quality merchandise, value and extraordinary customer service.

Hey Dick, the new Cabelas should work out perfect for you on the way to Baudette. I think a lot of guys will feel better about their ladies going to the Albertville outlet after Cabelas opens--drop the lady off and head for Cabelas. Somehow, I doubt if your Sportcraft was missing many fishing items!!

Are you staying warm enuf down in Florida? Supposed to be highs in the teens below zero here in Bemidji Thurs-Sat. If it hadn't snowed a good bit up here,it would be close to extension time already.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff
    • imhatz
      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike
