    Re: Whats YOUR fishing store?

    I never under stood why they moved the SJ store from the location they had on DeAnza blvd, to just a few blocks away from BassPro. That new location was smaller they what they had less inventory. The selection of trout/kokanee gear was so much less, I use to spend so much more at the old location. I hope they do better in there new location, where ever that is.

    Re: Whats YOUR fishing store?

    If I remember correctly. Fishermans Warehouse open before Basspro opened their doors. And knew Basspro was going in. I think they got a decent amount of bleed over from Basspro.
    I heard it was rent, and they bought a building in Fairfield.

    Fishermans Warehouse is not managed very well anyway. Almost always out of fast moving seasonal products.
    I went to Sac store for presentation on trolling for Salmon. Owner of “Tightlines” was instructing the class. Recommended a Cousins rod. Three of us were looking for rod to buy! None in stock! Bought mine directly from Cousins. Smart business people?

    I will miss Fishermans Warehouse. Staff was friendly and great to deal with/talk to. Management, not so great. Got my last $ unless I’m passing through Manteca and need something I didn’t plan for. I miss Mell Cottons too

    They are moving but to us San Jose folks it's pretty much the same as closing down because our options just dwindled from 3 to 2. Pretty unfortunate.

    As to why they are moving, it doesn't really have to do with lost business from BPS but rather their rent was increased by something like 2-3 times what it was. Very few places can afford a rent increase like that.

    I'm jealous of those that have either an OPS or a Sportsman's Warehouse. I'd trade either of them for a BPS in a heartbeat. I only shop BPS because it's 10 minutes from my house and their gift cards are convenient to purchase.

    Thumbs up Re: Whats YOUR fishing store?

    Fisherman's warehouse Sacramento, the bomb.

    Pretty much everything you need for the delta is there, and reasonable prices.

    Plus they always have some kind of seminar there, they gives you some good tips, might be a class for you.
