In 1971 young Johnny Morris, frustrated by the lack of tackle in local stores, rented a U-Haul trailer and took off across the country filling it with the newest premium fishing tackle he could find.

When he returned home to Springfield, Missouri, Johnny started in the fishing business with eight feet of space in his dad’s liquor store which became a popular stopping-off place for local and out-of-state fishermen on the way to the Ozark’s famous bass lakes.

A number of these anglers started calling when they got back home wanting Johnny to send them some of his specialized Bass Pro Shops tackle. In 1974, in response to this demand, he printed and mailed his first Bass Pro Shops catalog. Today, outdoor enthusiasts around the world look forward to opening the mail and getting their favorite Bass Pro Shops catalog, while many enjoy visiting and shopping basspro.com.

In 1978, Johnny introduced the first professionally rigged boat, motor and trailer fish-ready package. The Bass Tracker boat “package” revolutionized the marine industry. Huge boat showrooms are featured in every Bass Pro Shops store.

Bass Pro Shops today isn’t just fishing. It is an outdoor retail leader in hunting, camping, nature gifts, outdoor cooking, and much more.

From that simple beginning, Bass Pro Shops has become one of America’s premier outdoor retailers with destination outdoor retail stores across America and Canada, serving over 75 million sportsmen a year. Each store is unique and offers a truly unforgettable shopping experience - as close to the Great Outdoors as you can get indoors!

  • Best selection, especially on Black Friday deals. Columbia Men's and women's puffer jackets, normally $139.000, Black Friday special $99.00, assorted colors. Service staff very helpful in directing customers to correct aisle(s), to save valuable time. Highly recommend a store visit, if you've never been. Give yourself adequate time to check out their cool aquarium and adjacent trout pond. There are also shooting galleries for the kids so they can occupy their time , while one shops.
  • Excellent customer service, professional, courteous, friendly, personable, and always ready to assist the customer in a most efficient manner. Not any could ask for a finer outdoor authority, specializing in all areas of the sporting world. Their products are the very best, as the Redhead brand is certainly recognized in the hardware line as being at the upper end. When any seek to purchase the very best; look to Bass Pro Shops which is a stationary foundation always striving to improve upon their image.
  • I was one of the artists that built, sculpted, and painted the waterfalls, beaver pond, and aquariums in this store, and several others in the country. They all have their own individual charms, but this is one of my favorites because I really enjoyed Foxboro and the surrounding areas that I could visit while there. Being right next door to the Gillette Stadium is a real plus .
  • High brass, braided line, overly large coffee mugs, and Santa around Christmas time. What more could you want!? I love this place. I'd host my wedding here if they'd allow me.
  • Bass Pro has everything that anyone could want to fish for bass, freshwater or salt. They also have most products in a range of prices and brands. They were once inexpensive, but have no driven enough competitors out of business to charge higher prices. So this is one stop shopping for all your fishing needs, but don't expect bargains on name brands.
