Bass Pro Shops was founded in 1971 by Johnny Morris, who began by selling tackle in his father's liquor store in Springfield, Missouri. Less than 10 years later, Morris developed the first boat, trailer and motor package specifically designed for fisherman. Bass Pro Shops remains the premier retail outlet for fishing and boating needs and has expanded its inventory to include equipment for camping, hunting and cooking outdoors. There are physical locations all over the United States, with most stores clustered in the Central and Eastern states. Some retail locations include full-service restaurants.
