Out of the three stores bass pro shops, cabelas and sail. What store to you all enjoy to shop at. My go to store has always been bass pro shops. Like there lures and rod/reels selections. They always have my gear in stock. But that just me. Whatís everyone else take on this.

First off I hate shopping, when I go to a store its to buy something.
At this stage most of my purchases are well planned for so I'll go to the one that offers the best deal.
Cabelas is to far of a drive for me to make it a competitor for my dollars so that leaves either sail or basspro which are both basically down the street from me.
Sail has in my opinion limited options but they offer fairly regular minimum 15% off days. Basspro does have a bigger selection but their sales are usually a bait and switch gimmick but if you know how to play the game good savings can be had.

Well I'm from Cambridge so I mostly go to Sail since we have one in town, but most of the time they do not have what I am looking for so I venture off to Canadian Tire.

If Neither have what I am looking for, I'll get together with a few buddies and put an order in on Bassproshops.com. They have everything and its free shipping over $100

Living about 90 min. from the closest of the three (Cabelaís), lately my number one store has been eBay.ca and other online places. Iíve got some pretty good deals on bulk line spools, lures, reels etc. and even with a bit extra for shipping itís still cheaper than the drive south, especially with the gas prices. If Iím down there for something else, Iíll drop in and see what I can find.

Out of those 3 Bass pro.

I live out in the boonies so I buy online. My favorite site to browse is Tackle Warehouse, it's selection is second to none. Their sales are like clock work so I can plan my order now for november. Best online sales I've gotten probably from amazon, though Basspro and cabelas put some crazy prices on stuff in their clearance tabs...sometimes.

Well Carbela's is closest too me so I go there often. And I find their website to be the best if the bunch so it's easy to find out what's in stock.

But I do enjoy my time at the bait bucket. Tom, as well as the customers are always very friendly. He is having a big sale storewide the first weekend of June and I plan on being there for some new gear. Also like those mystery tackle boxes he puts together.

You can find a lot of good deals online at amazon , tackle warehouse has some unique items hard to find in Canada even JDM products but itís pricey to ship to Canada.

I likes Sail. There 15% off sales are more regular, They also seam to carry a wider range of rods and reals when it comes to diawa, shimano and some of the other name brands. Bass pro and Cabelas seam to push there name products more than others and keep the rest of the stuff at a limited selection. That being said nothing wrong with the Cabelas and Bass pro line up great products at an affordable price.
