About Bass Pro Shops East Peoria

All Bass Pro Shops are known for their visual dynamics; however, our 150,000 sq ft store simply awes the masses from the moment they cross the threshold. In fact, photo ops abound inside and out. Entering our lobby begins your experience with a hunting lodge that holds both state and world record mounts such as the Mel Johnson record typical buck, boasting both the Pope and Young and the Boone and Crockett awards. A virtual plethora of mounts, antiques, our massive fireplace and comfortable seating await you there as well.

Departments
Hunting and fishing enthusiast? We’ve got you covered! Our fishing dept alone has over 40,000 products! Tracker Boats of all sizes, electronics, boat accessories; Water-sports equipment (including kayaks); Camping equipment, outdoor cooking supplies, smokers; Gifts and Nature items; Apparel (including lots of camo!); Footwear for all ages and even a children’s Department for clothes and fun!

General Store
Our highly trained staff makes 300 different kinds of Fudge, though not all are available at a given time. If you can’t decide which one you want, ask for a sample! Fresh roasted and cinnamon glazed nuts, your sense of smell will insist that you include your sense of taste in this adventure! Many, many other hard to find candies await you as well.

Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl Restaurant
Stepping into Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl, you are immediately transported into an underwater adventure. The bar’s central attraction is the 5000 gallon saltwater aquarium housing its exotic fish species. From its raised vantage point, the bar provides great views of the bowling action while delivering your favorite refreshments. From solo ventures to kid’s parties or private rooms for large functions the Fishbowl serves up your unique destination.

Uncle Buck’s Bowling Alley
Have you ever bowled underwater? You can experience this undersea bowling alley without having to hold your breath or fight the undertow! Have fun with our shark and alligator ball returns and even more fun watching them spew forth a variety of imaginative bowling balls. Look for the colors of the coral, the massive marine life overhead and the shine of the lanes in an underwater hue.

Aquarium and Fish Feeding
We house a large variety of native fish in our massive 26,000 gallon, fresh-water aquarium: from crappie to long nosed gar. For the budding biologist in all of us, we’ve placed an identification poster right next to this educational aquarium. Our colossal fish-abode sits below a vast waterfall, in a wall designed after Garden of the Gods in Southern Illinois. Sitting atop the falls you’ll find the boulders contain an array of animal mounts. Bring your camera! While you’re there, pose with the unbelievably massive, standing-upright, 8 ft+ grizzly bear!

Our Fish Feeding Demonstrations are sure to bring a smile to your face! You’ll learn about the fish and what they like to eat. They receive plenty of the most nutritional foods first and then when they get their treats, you’ll want to take a step (or two) backward because that feeding frenzy can get you splashed!

The tank is cleaned by our own ichthyologist, in scuba gear. So don’t be startled if see someone actually swimming with the fishes!

Special Events
We begin the year with a January Free Boat Show and end with the major event of Santa’s Wonderland simply chock full of activities, crafts, Santa and more! In between we have more fun in store with the Easter Events, Family Summer Camp, Halloween Bass Pro Style and more.

Workshops, Demos and Store Only Events
Be sure to take advantage of the representatives who stop in from time to time. They’re here to answer your questions and to demonstrate their products.

We have many local fishing experts right here on staff, don’t be surprised if you see them up on top of the boulders and tossing a line in the tank as they enthuse us with their knowledge and tricks of the trade.
