Best Bass Pro Black Friday Deals 2020
From fly rods to combo cookers, our selection of the best Bass Pro Black Friday deals has you covered. Family fishing trip, here you come!
Mr. Heater Portable Buddy Propane Heater—Now $80 (was $100). Ice fishing, hunting deer from a perched box, or waiting for the sun to rise from a duck blind are all fun pursuits, but ice fishing, hunting deer from a perched box, and waiting for the sun to rise when the temperature is in the single digits is decidedly not. That’s one reason the portable propane heater from Mr. Heater is so popular. The Buddy is easy to transport and operate, and can kick out an amazing amount of warmth given its size. Fueled by a simple propane canister, it can kick out 4,000 to 9,000 BTUs an hour for three to six hours and heat up to 225 square feet of space. If you’re worried about safety, it’s okay to use indoors or out, and it features low-oxygen and tip-over safety shut-off systems.
Bass Pro Shops Pro Qualifier 2 Baitcast Reel—$70 (was $100). This lightweight, compact reel is made from one piece of machined aluminum. It features an instant anti-reverse and the line guide is titanium-coated. Plus, it has a built-in lube port.
Simms Headwaters Pro Mesh Vest—Now $100 (was $130). Historically, when anglers ventured from home to the water, they didn’t know what mood the fish would be in, so it paid to bring all the tackle and equipment you could carry. But it’s such a cumbersome task, and as they say, necessity is the mother of invention. Hence, the fishing vest was born. Not only do these sleeveless, sporty outer layers provide enough room for nearly every hand-sized tackle box you own, some, like this model from Simms, have large zippered pockets to hold anything from a packable rain jacket to a sack lunch. What’s more, the Headwaters Pro Mesh Vest is largely constructed of just that—mesh—so your skin is free to breathe on sweltering afternoons.
Zoom Zlinky 5-inch June Bug—Now $4 (was $5.50). You can never have too many soft baits in your tackle box. Not only are they inexpensive, they’re easy to rig and mimic their real-life counterpart so much you’d swear there’s a heartbeat in it somewhere. The Zoom Zlicky is one of the softest soft baits on the market, which can make the difference between a bad day and a good day on the water if the fish aren’t especially aggressive. These worm-shaped attractors are loaded with salt and have a molded in-hook slot for secure hook connection.
Zoom 6-inch Lizard—Now $2.50 (was $3.00). Not to be outdone by the Zoom Zlinky, the Zoom Lizard kicks, swims, darts and dives just like the real thing when it’s in the water. And while bass are likely willing to strike a lizard any time of year, they’re especially ready to bite in the spring when they’re guarding their nests from a potential egg-stealing attack. Like the Zlinky, this bait is impregnated with salt, has a realistic profile and action, and is available in over 45 color combinations.
