Compared to our limited selection before, we have received a wide variety of She Safari clothing in store. We now have a selection from casual wear, safari, upland, and the popular camouflage. “She” has a great selection of clothing that is comfortable and designed specifically for women. Alongside our popular camouflage selection, I want to tell you about the new features from the “She Safari” collection. We carry a few styles of shirts and pants that are in a solid color assortment of khaki, light olive green, and dark olive green. These solid colors are perfect for those hunting in exotic areas where camouflage is illegal. I’ve been told that these specific colors are hard to find available in styles for women. She Safari clothing is tailored and trimmed to be more form fitting and flattering to our female customers. Subtle features such as scrunching, cap sleeves, and buttons add a more stylish appeal without being over dramatic. I like that these shirts are versatile and can be pulled off as casual wear when you’re not out in the wild. The shirts are breathable in hot weather making them stylish and practical. Always a plus! Don’t settle for buying men’s clothes and check out our new items in our “She Safari” collection!

Father's Day is coming up soon and I just happen to have 2 men's tops that I think you will like. Whether your man is the casual type or the dressier type, we can take care of him with these 2 greats shirts.
The first is the Red Head Sportsman polo which is 100% polyester and is machine washable. It sells for $24.99 with an upcharge on the 3XL at $27.99. The colors are great and as listed: Sportsman Blue, Vintage Khaki, Willow Green, Surf, Orangeade, Lemon, and Red Chili. This has the the quick-dry wicking technology which moves the perspiration away from the body and through the fabric so it can evaporate quickly. This helps keep the skin temperature at a comfortable level which is definitely needed living in San Antonio. This polo has an almost cotton touch to it and is imbued with an anti-wrinkle feature as well.
The next shirt I want to tell you about is the Sportsman Twill shirt which has short sleeves and a button down collar. It sells for $24.99 with an upcharge for the 3XL-5XL at $27.99. It comes in 8 colors as well; Cornmeal, Grass, Stone, Olive, White, Red. Navy, and Basketball Orange. The exciting features on this shirt that you will appreciate are that it is 100% cotton and a Nanotex Fabric. This means that it needs little or no ironing but the best part is the Nanotex fabric also resists spills. It has a technology spill resistance right in the fabric. The liquids will just bead up and off instead of soaking into the fabric.
You will be looking great in these Men's shirts and staying comfortable all summer long. We have come a long way in the technology in fabrics and their wear and durability. Both the Sportsman Polo and the Sportsman Twill Shirt will make a great Father's Day gift!

Gas prices continue to rise, but did you know that Texas resident boaters are eligible for a fuel tax rebate? The State of Texas has money for you, but you have to claim it. How??? If you collect and tally your gas receipts during the year and file a form once a year, the State of Texas will mail you a check for $.20 per gallon for the gas you used in your boat. Texas is one of nine states that offer a resident rebate for off-road fuel taxes. Every gallon of gasoline purchased from a retail gas station has a State Highway tax included in the price per gallon and since your boat doesn’t use gas on the highways, you are entitled to this refund. This can be used for boating or other “Off-road” purposes. The State Comptroller requires an annual form to filed and receipts to be verified every three years. Sending in your receipts for the first year is a certainty. If your first year claim does not have any miscalculations or disallowed receipts, the Comptroller’s office may not require you to send hard copies in your next two years.
It is a two-step process: 1) Collect your receipts, they must include the date of purchase, number of gallons purchased, price per gallon and the type of fuel purchased. Your receipt must also show the name and address of the seller. So be sure to check the receipt before leaving the gas station. You may have to ask cashier to stamp back of receipt. Keep your receipts in a box or envelope and put the date of your first receipt on the box or envelope. Keep out off heat, they have a tendency to fade. 2) File you claim, Form #06-106. Your claim form must be postmarked before the first anniversary date of the first claim amount you are requesting. There is no affiliated date when you can start collecting gas receipts. You can start collecting gas receipts when you pump the next gallon of gas in your boat. If you begin saving receipts on May 15th, your claim form would need to be postmarked by May 14th of the following year.

It's April, which means Spring is here and when we think of Spring, we think COLOR!
There are some really great brights out there this season but watch for the COLOR ORANGE! We just received a great new collection from Bob Timberlake and yes it is all about ORANGE.
It is similar to Orange Sherbert ice cream or remember eating a "Dreamscicle"? We have 2 stand out shirts in this group: the first is a short sleeve woven cotton plaid of ORANGE and green for $42.00. The second is another short sleeve in a seersucker mini check in ORANGE and blue for the same price. There is a great fashion ripstop vest with a 4 pocket front for $68.00 and it is a khaki color.
There are 4 polos in this group, a short sleeve oxford pique in blue and beige and the other 2 are a navy and an ORANGE with a stripe across the chest. You can put these together with the great flat front blue glen plaid short or the beige flat fron stripe short. They retail for $45.00 each.
I pulled in a short sleeve chambray shirt that is sooo soft and can be worn with this entire group. The colors are ORANGE, blue, beige, and a light green. My favorite short in this group is a solid ORANGE cargo short for $45.00. The fabric is excellent as well as the cut of the short, so it looks good and feel good. You have to see this collection for yourself and all the excellent detailing in each piece.

It's February and you know what that means! It's time to go fishing!! Bass Pro Men's Apparel has just what you need to wear when you are taking out your boat. First let's talk about the Flats Guide Fishing Shirt which comes in short and long sleeves. The short sleeve retails for $59.99 and the long sleeve for $69.99. We carry 6 colors which are: Mosaic (turqoise), Pale Yellow, Minnow (lime green), Cirrus Blue, and Desert Sand. They are 100% Polyester which makes them an easy wash and a quick dry. It is a loose fit so when wearing one of these shirts it is a light feeling shirt that keeps you cool and dry.
There are 5 reasons that make this one of the top fishing shirts that you should be wearing.
1.) Moisture Transportation
This means the material is engineered to wick sweat and dry fast.
2.) Strategic Ventilation
Mesh and the ultra-light polyester fabric is placed exactly where you need it.
This is technology that stops those stinky odor-causing microbes in their tracks.
4.) UV Protection
The Flats Guide fishing shirt has a UPF 30+ to block out the sun's harmful rays.
5.) Stain Resistant
Ewww....blood, dirt, and sweat may get on, but they never soak in!
Of course you will need our Guide Zip-Off Trail Pant III to go with your cool fishing shirt and we have these for $74.99. These have all of the technology that I explained in the above paragraph as well. We have these in 32"-42" waist and the colors are Light Khaki, Medium Khaki, and Dark Khaki. And to top it all off..we have a new Ripstop Fish Hook cap for $19.99. The colors are Desert Sand and Acadia Blue.

IT ONLY COSTS $79.97, when most competitors tables run around $119.99!
A behemoth of a deep diving crank designed for targeting the biggest bass, the Strike King 10XD Crankbait measures in at 6-inches in length and easily hits the 25-foot mark on 14-lb fluorocarbon. It gets you in front of fish that you previously couldn’t reach with a crankbait, and also casts and pulls surprisingly easy for its size. Available in a range of colors, the Strike King 10XD is what you need when money is on the line - and you need that kicker fish.

It is early February as boating and fishing season is approaching equipment needs to be replaced or you are looking for a better solution for what didn’t work last season.
One of the most common issues I continue to receive was an issue with anchoring in shallow waters without getting into a Minn Kota Talon or a PowerPole. Here at Bass Pro Shops in San Antonio (currently the only Bass Pro Shops in Texas that carries it) we received a couple months back a perfect solution and it is called the Stick It Anchor Pin. What is the Stick It? The Stick It is a 3/4" solid reinforced polyester resin anchor pin with a T handle; it has no metal parts so it makes it maintenance free no matter if you fish fresh or saltwater. We are currently carrying the 5.5ft in black designs just for kayaks and an 8ft white that’s recommended for kayaks and flats boats up to 24' or up to 22' bay boats anchoring in up to 7' of water.
The Stick It is nearly unbreakable and very flexible as demonstrated in the photo below from the Stick It Anchor Pins website and if something were to happen to it outside of it being lost or stolen the Stick It does have a full 5 year warranty.
So, the next time you are fishing in shallow waters and come to realize that a traditional anchor is to troublesome, get your self a Stick It Anchor Pin.

We currently are carrying 8 different colors in the Mullet pattern. These baits have been talked about all year. Designed after the Original Wedgetail, the new Kick-A Mullet suspends, rattles, and kicks as it swims. Its slow sinking action drives big Trout and Redfish crazy. It also makes a world class wake bait when worked right under the surface of the water. A twitch, twitch-stop is one of the best all around techniques for this bait. The fall rate varies depending on salinity, but changing hooks can either slow or speed up this up. As the fall season begins and the big Trout and Redfish go on the hunt these baits should be in every Fishermen’s arsenal.
Come see us at the San Antonio Fishing dept to see these new baits in person.
