While millions of Americans rediscovered the joy of fishing throughout 2020, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s is inspiring families to “Keep Fishin’” with the return of spring and its Spring Fishing Classic. The event takes place through March 31 in all Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s stores and online.
The events of 2020 resulted in unprecedented numbers of Americans getting back to nature, with a record number of state fishing licenses sold across the country. To help encourage even more people to take up the sport and get outside, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s is inviting customers to trade in their used rods and reels in exchange for big savings while donating the used gear to local nonprofit organizations that connect kids with nature.
Customers who donate used rods and reels in working order can receive trade-in savings of up to $150 on the purchase of a new rod and reel. The used fishing equipment will be donated to local nonprofit organizations. In the last five years, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s has donated more than 400,000 products to youth-focused nonprofit organizations as part of the company’s mission to inspire everyone to enjoy, love and conserve the great outdoors.
Customers will also see a variety of special offers in-store and online to upgrade their gear before they hit the water. Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s CLUB Members will receive an exclusive special financing offer – plus, earn $25 in CLUB Points for every $250 spent in-store using their CLUB Mastercard throughout the Spring Fishing Classic. See store for details.
With the Spring Fishing Classic, families and fishing fans can take advantage of fishing report video updates throughout the fishing season.
