Bass Pro Shops/Outdoor World, Rossford, Ohio
The first thing you will notice is that our store is one of the few stand-alone Bass Pro Shops Outdoor Worlds. There are three magnificent ponds on the property which bring in a variety of wildlife such as frogs, birds, geese, and ducks. Being located on the east side of I-75 with a view through the windows gives customers a glimpse of what our store has to offer.
Once entering the building, you come into the lodge which features the moose, elk, deer, trout and bass. Memorabilia covers the walls featuring hunters and fisherman back through the 1900’s. With the tremendous fireplace and seating area, it is the perfect spot to relax during our cold winters. In the glass case across from the fireplace is a collection of antique reels and tackle. Through the archway of antlers is our store.
All of our professionally, hand-painted murals represent places in Ohio. The places include the soothing waterfalls in Athens to the great Maumee River to various wooded areas, marshes and corn fields. If you go to our fishing department and look up, you can see our mural that looks as if you are standing on the bottom of the lake. Even the rustic stair railings are handmade by Toledo’s finest artists and engineers.
Another attraction that people of all ages can enjoy is the mountain in the middle of the store that features deer, elk, black bears, grizzly bears, artic fox and a mountain lion. We have trophy bucks, pheasants, ducks, geese, turkeys, raccoons, wild boar and more throughout our store. Handcrafted chandeliers and animal prints in the concrete floor are just a couple of the finishing touches.
The most famous trophy buck we have is Ohio’s Hole-in-the-Horn Buck. He is the most legendary whitetail in North America with his antlers of a gigantic proportion at 328 2/8. In 1940, a group of railroad workers first discovered him under a fence that made it look like he was hit by a train. An infamous hole was carved out of his antler by stiff wire that was hanging down from the bottom links in the fence which had pierced his antler. Not only is he featured in our store, but he has his own mural on the outside of our building.
Aquarium and Fish Feeding
We have many different species of fish native to Ohio that live in our aquarium at the base of the stunning waterfall in the mountain. In our 19,100 gallon aquarium is home to bass, catfish, blue gill, crappie, carp, walleye, gar and more. We also have a 4,000 gallon trout stream with three generations of rainbow trout, brook trout, and brown trout. Our local pros lead seminars and use the aquarium to show their new products, techniques, and their fishing tips. On Saturdays at noon and Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m. is when the fish get fed!
Shoot N’ Range
We have several different arcade games, but it is the Shoot N’ Range that catches everyone’s eye. Being placed as a camping in the woods setting with three tents, an outhouse, and a jeep gives kids and even adults the joy of shooting at the targets. Each target is interactive so be careful when you shoot at the outhouse!
