Which is better:  Bass Pro Shops or Cabela's?  Personally, I like the selection from Bass Pro better, buy what do y'all think?

Basspro can have some really good sales but some bad customer service and shipping times. Cabelas sells good quality lures but can be overpriced. If it was up to me I would chose ***.  ;D

for me to get to either one of the two I have to drive 3 1/2 hrs so by the time I get there I am happy to be there.

This coming weekend I will be going to BPS in Vegas so I plan on having a good old time in there;D ;D

like a kid in a candy store, if I could only get free samples...

I agree with this. I would take Cabelas if I had to pick one. BPS is my last resort option.

I've recently decided I do NOT like BPS anymore, however, I do not have a cabelas anywhere near me (BPS is still an hour and a half) I do not like buying online, so its kinda up to local (ATLEAST 10% more expensive) or I do BPS...there are rumors of a cabelas or G. mountain opening near me tho, so maybe I'll be better off soon.

They are both fun stops if you are in the neighborhood. There are some great small companies that do mail order. I have the number for Northern Bass Supply in my cell phone and have called from the water and have ordered from the water and had a live well pump sitting on my doorstep the next morning. Susquehanna Tackle is another good one and in the west Bass Tackle Depot and Tackle Warehouse are both good and carry a lot of stuff that the giants do not. For reels I have found that Bait and Hook has the best price lately.

Its pretty awesome really for the Angler today. You can get anything on line and those little brown trucks come almost every day. Long gone are the days when we had to rely on Bass Pro and Cabela's alone

BPS by far. The Cabela's by me is a joke. They have about 1/10th in the store of what they have in the catalog. BPS has more. Never had any problems with returns etc. from BPS.

BPS needs to address their shipping/customer service problems. If I place a order on Saturday I expect to have it by the following Friday. BPS cannot provide this so I no longer use them.

Every one of the hundreds of my BPS orders has never taken more than 4 days! For $1.00-2.00 more they do the 3 day upgrade(USPS only). I have had nothing but great experiences with their customer service as well!

I like BPS better but, I go to Cabela's because it's 2 hours closer.
