Crappie Basics – Buy Winter Fishing Gear Now for Bargains
Are you one of those people who goes out and buys Christmas ornaments right AFTER Christmas because you know they’ll be on sale?
Or maybe you even buy fireworks after the 4th of July to (safely) store until next year?
You know the prices likely drop after those special holidays, sometimes by significant margins.
Perhaps you should apply the same principal in shopping for winter fishing gear, especially ice fishing equipment, during the dog days of summer.
You know as soon as the first skim ice appears wherever you live, there is going to be a mad rush on your local sporting goods stores, and maybe even online. Prices will be at a premium, and that is assuming they can even keep the stuff you are looking for in stock. For instance, Scheels has a propane heater (at this writing) $79.99 (normally $99.99).
Odds are some web surfing can find you some similar deals, so maybe right now is the right time to do some shopping for the coming winter, insuring you are stocked up and ready when the mad winter rush begins.
