You have always in the back of your mind wanted to fish. Perhaps you remember when you were a child fishing with your dad or grandparents. Life moves on, and now that need to escape for a hour or so is calling you back. People who fish come into Bass Pro at all ages and sizes. People who do it for a livingl. Young children wanting to learn, and yes adults who due to a busy life have never had time. Therapy is what I hear many fisherman say. It gives you time to just think about something else that has nothing to do with work, money, or day to day problems. Fishing as in any hobby can be as expensive or inexpensive as you wish. Lets start out light.
First things first. Do you need a license? If you are 16 or older, then yes you do. We sell Fishing Licenses right here at the Customer Service Department. It does not take long, all we need is your driver's license. You can get a license for a year, seven days, or just one day. Once you have that continue down to our Fishing Department.
The Bass Pro Shop Brawler Spinning Road & Reel Combo is worthy of that first fishing pole. It has great sensitivity, and made of solid shock absorbing fiberglass. Priced just right to keep around and use until you want to change to a different pole.
What lure do we recommend with this combo? Fishing stated that this time of year most are out fishing for trout. They recommended the Panther Martin-Spinner Spinnerbait. The blade is easy and fast with a weighted body. It casts like a bullet due to the blade mounted to the shaft. It comes in many different colors and the hooks will keep that fish caught. Check out the reviews on line.
So, if you feel that the lake, pond, or river calling you back, stop on by. We will be happy to get you outside and we can fit the price for your wallet.
