Just got back from there... it wasn't that much of a zoo. Lots of people just looking. Very different from the Washington one.

I went there today around 1pm. I was suprised how many people there were. There was even people out directing traffic there. I haven't heard anything about the swamp people guys being there, but I did read that Babe Winkleman is going to be there Saturday 10 to 11:30am, and 3 to 4:30pm(Saturday also).

ouch!!! Lol. My boat is weeping right now.

That place was an insane zoo. There was zero parking and people everywhere...I kept driving. It's not going anywhere and my new workplace is 5 minutes away so I'll have plenty of time to get acquainted lol.

If you don't mind people then you'll have fun.

I was there for the opener :-| was gonna buy some stuff as they had some nice deals in the bargain cave. but i didn't feel like a 2 hour wait in line was in due order. They do allow pictures, I am bummed there is no aquarium there tho. How am i spose to test out fishing gear for sensitivity? hmmmmmm? lol

Man what great guys got a shirt autographed and some pics they were so friendly and takin time for the photos very different than many meet and greets . The store is small by Cabela standards the fishin gear selection is as good as any of the other local large stores , bought a pair of new waders from the bargain cave for 46 bones reg over 100 still very busy but checkout was not that bad, signed up for all the give away stuff too .All in all a good mornin my wife was very pleased to meet Troy and Jake.
