As we move into the final weekend of our annual Spring Fishing Classic, it's time to focus on the kids for awhile.  March 15 & 16 is our Generation NeXt weekend, designed to introduce the next generation of outdoorsmen/women to hunting and fishing activities.

Activities run noon - 5:00 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. The featured event is Kids Catch 'n' Release Fishing. Kids 12 and under can use a real cane pole to catch a bass, bream or crappie in our own "County Line Creek."  We will also have free souvenir pictures, free crafts (color a magnetic fish) and free tackle box giveaways (while supplies last).

We will also present two kids fishing workshops, where kids can learn to "Think Like a Fish."  These workshops take place at 2:30 and 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday at our aquarium. Each child that attends will receive a copy of "My Fishing Journal" provided by Shakespeare Fishing.book

Finally, Bass Pro Shops is presenting our very first "Women's Beginning Fishing Workshop." This workshop is being taught by women for women and takes place at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.  This is a great opportunity for all women and/or girls that have an interest in fishing but don't know how to get started. We will have refreshments, giveaways and prizes - you could win one of two fishing combos! Sorry guys - this one is for ladies only!

A Classic Sign of Spring

A Classic Sign of spring

By: Jerry Costabile

On February 28th, the weather here in the Midwest will start to get warmer, even if it’s cold outside. From February 28th until March 16th, the Gurnee, Illinois Bass Pro Shops will be having their annual “Spring Classic”. This is the start of spring for many of us fishermen and fisherwomen. This the time to forget about the cold and snow that we have been battling all winter and get inside the store where the air is filled with fishing!

It starts with the very big sales ad, 44 pages! I can’t believe the great pricing and unbelievable deals that are going to be featured from front to back. From lures to Tracker Boats, there is something for everyone! The promotions are first class from BASSMASTER University, Daily specials on March 7th & 8th and 14th $ 15th, also, The Next Generation weekend for the kids on March 15th & 16th. Check this out, from February 28th until March 5th you will be able to trade in your old reel and get up to $100 off of the purchase of a new reel and from March 7th until March 11th, you can get the same deal with your old rods! All of the trade in rods and reels are donated to charities and youth groups and organizations. If you need a way to justify buying a new rod and reel, here you go, tell them it’s for a good cause!

There will be seminars every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday throughout the Classic. Speakers from pro fishermen talking about fishing for bass, muskies, salmon, walleyes and more! There will be fried fish sampling on March 8th, and if you are in the market for new fishing electronics, you won’t believe this, buy a qualifying unit and you will get the following: First, Triple Rewards Points, second, FREE Standard Power Pros Accessory Installation, and third, a FREE three year Gear Guard Protection Plan! This includes Lowrance, Hummingbird, Garmin, Motorguide, and Minn Kota. Plus, between March 6th and 12th, you can receive up to $100 in Bass Pro Shops Bonus Bucks!

If you are in the market for a 9.9 motor, for the Classic you can get a Mercury 9.9 FourStroke motor and receive an additional $500 after special price reduction or get a $500 Bass Pro Shops Gift Card!

If you need to forget about winter and get into spring, come out to the 2014 Spring Classic and experience the biggest fishing event ever!
