The BPS Spring Classic is a few weeks away.  I find the time approaching, when all hope is lost for my bank account.  My wife, sits in solitude as she ponders the horrors that await as I gleefully browse my master catalog, hoping, wishing, that certain items will be on sale.

 

All joking aside

 

What items are you guys hoping will be on sale, as in, you don't need one, but you will buy one, or 10, if the price is right.

 

My personal wish list

 

Hoping to pick up a Pflueger president spinning reel, rod will depend on what is on sale.  Probably a 6-6 MH.  Hoping abu garcia might have their rod line on sale, Vertias or vendetta.  I have a ML vertias that I plan on using for pretty much drop shotting and shakey heads.  Want something with a little more backbone, perhaps for jerkbaits or some weightless stickworms.  (I prefer spinning rods for this)

 

Also hoping to pick up another PQ, debating between Falcon bucco or a carbonlite rod.  I know the PQ and carbonlites are usually on sale, but we shall see.

 

Also hoping to stock up on some Jigs.

 

 

Yes, these items are not expensive even when not on sale, But I love a good bargain!

 

What are you guys hoping to see?

I love my Falcon rods.  I doubt they would put the Buccoo on sale though.   I don't have any Buccoo's but I have heard they are decent rods.  For the price IMO I would pay a little more and go with the Lowrider series.  It is worth the extra 30-50 bucks.

 

You could turn in some of your old rods to get some money off a new one.

And when at last I come to rest, I'll then most humbly pray;
When in His landing net I lie in final sleep;
That in His mercy I'll be judged as good enough to keep! -Homer Circle

I almost wish I hadn't bought the two reels I have this year -- though the BPS Extreme baitcaster was on sale and I doubt the price will improve during the spring sale.

 

Honestly, I hope for nothing. I'm pretty much as stocked up as I need to be, particularly since that son of a gun bait monkey got me  again today with some more plastics and spinnerbaits. But hey, they were on sale.


I'm pretty sure that Shimano, Jeeps, women, rye and the Chicago Bears are the keys to a good life.

What kind of deals do they normally have for this sale? Is it a xxx % off or just selected items will be on sale? Also when is it?

Usually a mix, some % off on some items, some sale prices on regular items, and almost always some special purchase items.

It can be a real find if the stuff you have been wanting, falls in one of those categories. Also a lot of guys find stuff they may have wanted to try, but didn't want to pay full price, but, hey, now that it's on sale, I'll give it a shot. It is always a lot of fun just watching and enjoying the excitement. The sale runs from Feb. 22, thru March 10. I work at BPS, so I look forward to seeing you....... uh... that is if you're going to the one in Cincinnati......lol

The flagship store in Springfield MO, has always had Wiggle Warts on sale for something like $2.99, so I always grab a handful of those.  BPS tungsten weights are usually on sale, and I always need some more tungsten weights.  Last year they had sale prices on Lucky Craft cranks.  I'm hoping they get their flyer out soon so we can see what the deals are.  It's only 2 weeks away for crying out loud!


I'd rather be fishing

If the pixy comes down it might be more than I can handle. If it gets anywhere remotely close to $300 I would buy one in a heartbeat.

 

Probably going to get a 100% dedicated topwater rod/reel. I wont be spending a fortune on it because I dont throw topwater that much at my home lake. Its not nearly as effective as other places.

I look for deals on "comsumables".

Bulk line!!! I bought 20 or 30 bags of plastics last year. I'm solid there. I have plenty of hooks and weights. I want two more Revo STX Gen3's, but I doubt they can get me know as cheap as eBay...

Def a place I could work....my check would goto the discounts on BPS products tho...Id be broke.

 

 

I hope to get another pq, carbonlite reel(s) and a spinning rod. My friends need items so I encouraged them to wait a bit.

I think this year I'm more keen on terminal tackle sales since I've already bought a Lexa 100, and I just scored a Premier at DSG for ~$50 to pair with it!!! I had to do like the commercial with my son who was with me: "Don't tell your mom"

 

So I really can't justify any "big" purchases this year. Unless I find an Avid down to $100...

That is exactly where my BPS money goes. Probably more than I even make. I am retired, and that was the very reason I wanted to work at BPS, to feed my fishing addiction. It works out real well for me.

It starts Feb. 22nd.  They usually have discounts on some of their merchandise at 50%.  Most everything in the flyer is discounted.  But my suggestion is to go in to the store anyways.  They always have other things on sale at huge discounts.  It is a time to stock up for sure!
