If the new Academy Sports store in Orange Park is gonna be anything like the Academy Sports that's proposed to open November 1st at Atlantic & Kernan Blvd. LOOK OUT!
Most people have no clue who Academy Sports is.....my neighbor Tom didn't. I do because I read La. Sportsman Magazine...Go figure. And Academy Sports advertises in La. Sportsman magazine. And has for along time been west of us, as in "I don't believe they were ever in Florida?"
And if you've ever watched fishing shows on Direct TV (satellite TV) some of the good ones are based in La. and Texas. Well, to make a long story short, Academy always seems to advertise on the Gulf coast fishing shows.
I was at the Academy Sports store in the dreaded O.P. yesterday. My dad had to go pick up a motorcycle engine from a friend that lives over that way. So as a treat for helping navigate with the GPS to find his buddies house through a maze of streets. He awarded me 25 minutes in the new Academy Sports store. He's scared, because one time he spent 8 hrs in a Bass Pro Shops.
As far as Fishing stuff in Academy Sports...."I think you'll like what you see, I did".
They have lot's of stuff that has always been on my mind, Gulf Coast tackle. Lot's of products from H&H tackle, Castaway Rods, etc. All the little tackle items you just don't see here, that much.
And on that topic....I'll let the fish outa the bag.
(watch those dorsals!!!)
Here's a place I've been shopping for years. I'm on the mailing list. And ya wanna talk about some sweet deals. (Especially Reels.)
Actually, I don't know why I'm so nice! (maybe cuz I have more than I need??) Because FFO has been a double whammy secret shopping site of mine for along time.
