Everyone I go in there, my wife will call. After I tell her where I am, She says "Oh god,do I need to start moving money around"

My wife has now termed it, "Academayo"

I've easily dropped 1,500 a 2,000 in there the last two months. I guess that comes with owning your first boat.

This is the exact reason I'm glad FTU and Bass Pro are 30min. away. If they were as close as Academy I'd be so beyond broke....

Happens every time. I cant remember the last time I got out of there under $100. I probably haven't even used half of the stuff I bought.

Only $100 bucks I call the discipline.

I wish they were that close to Athens----
Academy Tyler-- 45 minutes
BPS -- Garland 1hr 15 minutes
so when I go there I think I am never going to make it back & I buy 3-4 of everything, even though I still have over 300 bags of plastics in my fish shed.

it is an addiction...HEY....maybe I should start a "Bass Fishing Clinic" group, kinda like the Betty Ford Clinic. Think I could get some customers ?

Haha I went to buy some plastics the other day and left with three bags of what I went to get, one bag of something "cool", some more frogs, and a new Falcon rod. I had no self control when I go to a great tackle shop.

Of all the stores in DFW that offer fishing gear, so far, Sports Academy is my favorite!
Surprisingly, my least favorite was the big Barlow's Tackle Shop store off Central at Arapaho.

Addendum: Yes, I've always called it Sports Academy.
