About the Store
Bass Pro Shops/Outdoor World, Tacoma, Washington
The first thing you need to do as soon as you enter our lobby is look around and up! You will be amazed at how artisans have captured the beauty and outdoor opportunities found in the Pacific Northwest. Massive log and rock work, a large indoor aquarium and water fall feature stocked with native fish species, hand-painted murals, museum quality fish and wildlife mounts, photos, and artifacts that all pay tribute to the region’s great outdoor heritage.
We are more than just a Fishing and Hunting store. Come to our store and see our other extensive departments like Camping (that includes hiking, grilling and everything in between), our Gifts and Nature center (toys, hot sauces, wind chimes, music, etc.), Apparel and Footwear (with brand names like RedHead, Under Armour, Bob Timberlake and more), Marine (electronics, boat accessories, GPS, etc.). The best part is that each department has skilled and knowledgeable associates that will guide you thru your every need.
The 12,000-gallon freshwater aquarium is a focal point of the store and features a 3-D diorama of a running waterfall with mountain lion, big horn sheep, and mountain goats against a backdrop mural of Mount Rainier. The aquarium is stocked with 75-100 fish native to the area such as largemouth bass, striped bass, black/white crappie, yellow perch, muskellunge, rainbow trout, brook trout, walleye, channel catfish, and more.
Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl and Grill
Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl and Grill is a nautical-themed entity located within the store. It features an atmosphere and design geared for family fun and dining. Casual family dining will be available in the grill where customers can select from a menu featuring a variety of appetizers, sandwiches, salads and burgers. 16 lanes of bowling will offer customers the chance to feel like they’re bowling in the ocean.
Tracker Boat Department
The store features an expansive boat showroom displaying boats from Nitro, Sun Tracker, Mako and Tahoe as well as Arctic Cat ATVs and accessories.
