Bass Pro In Bloomington?


Recommended Posts

I just heard on FOX9 that Bass Pro Shops (might) be interested in a store location at the Mall Of America. Apparently the Mall in Bloomington is going to be expanded they say a store like BPS will make the guys start walking around with shopping bags also grin.gif

Anybody know any details?

I think this is a bad idea.

Now the wife will want to come along to go shopping.

She will see what we are actually spending on fishing! crazy.gif

Just a thought.......

Could this be a hint at the new theme park:

Camp Fish? grin.gif

Just think of the possibilities

I heard the fox 9 news as well. They said the square footage is almost twice the size of the new Cabela's!

That would be great, I was to the B.P. in Springfield about 10 years ago, awesome to say the least. They are great stores.

Did anyone read Nick Coleman's tirade about BPS in today's paper.

I just wanted to barf. Calling it a "bait shop" and saying how he went to Cabela's one time and came to the conclusion that the only thing it needed was a couple of human heads on the wall to finish it off frown.gif and how the "bubbafication" of America is ruining it.

Yep, Nick you are so much better than everyone else. mad.gif

Nick Coleman, hummm. I've got a few names for him. If he knew or cared about anything about the sporting community he would have wrote differently. I wonder what Cabelas thinks of his article.

I just wonder how you could compare Humans to Animals. I Will be canceling my subscription to the Star Trib.

What a shame.

I am against BP coming into the state.

I get away without paying state sales tax now! (mail orders) That would change if a retail store came here.

I just sent him an email CC to customer service and CC to mgmt that I just cancelled my subscription due to this article. I also send a copy of article to Cabelas management for their review, I believe they do advertise quite a lot on StarTrib.

I guess coleman won't get much attention through media but through his own management.

This is a typical case of media nonsense printed just to attract reactions thus attention.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
