the one in Burleson is horrible with their fishing section. Half of the racks stay empty most of the time. The local Walmart carries more. Academy in general have all seemed to have cut way back on what they carry fishing wise.

Most of the ones I frequent have fishing racks that look like they are going out of business. But they have 500 different styles of running shoes!

RIP Casey Allison. He sold all his fishing gear and is now a runner. I blame Academy!

The Tyler Academy has re-done their whole fishing dept. It is now bigger and lots more empty pegs on the new shelves. They got done with construction a week ago but still have not restocked. Once they do looks they are going to be great. They have also improved their rod selection and a new reel counter that looks to be fully stocked.

The Academy in Garland is a good one like that. Really impressed me.

I have complained at the Denton store several times on how the plastics are organized or unorganized. Take the zoom section baby brushog colors are just put wherever there is room other baits are the same way you have to look through the whole section for the color your looking for. If I don't have to have something within a few days I'll just order from TW. I don't usually have 10 minutes to dig to find each color I went in to get.

I have been told by store employees they have a outside company that organizes their tackle and if this is the case they need to be fired.

I really hope the Greenville store will be set up nice for you Mark, but the last few academy stores I have been in were lacking in fishing tackle to say the least. The store over by my deer lease in Monroe La. Probably has the best selection I have seen in any academy stores in years. If all of them were stocked like that store I bet they would sell a lot more fishing and hunting related items.

Academy is just a place for trophy wives to buy yoga pants. Ever since they sold out it has become a clothing store. The one here in Longview is ok but luckily we have a couple of nice tackle shops.

www.Academy.com, I'm pretty much done with wasting my time going to the stores. We have 7 or 8 stores in the San Antonio area and there might be 2 worth going into. The store that I went to most frequently has been out of the same stuff in the fishing department for over a year without restocking!
