Fishing Bait Tackle Shops

Fishermen spend tons of money on fishing tackle, fishing lures, fishing boats, fish finders and a myriad of other things. The one thing they sometimes fail to consider is the importance of fishing bait tackle shops.

This can be one of the most important stops the fisherman makes before he heads out for a day of fishing. Not only do these shops provide bait and lures, they also provide information that can be critical to the success of your fishing trip.

The truth is not all fishing bait tackle shops are created equal. The good ones provide not only quality bait and products but quality information. The information can be as important as the bait and lures. All the equipment in the world will not help you catch fish if you are not fishing where the fish are.

This is where the really good shops excel.They can not only tell you where the fish are they can tell you what baits and lures are the most productive. They can also tell you which time of day is most productive.

Armed with this kind of information you have a very good chance of a successful fishing trip. So now that you know what you need the question is how do you find the shops that excel. The answer can be found on your computer.

Do a search for fishing reports in the area you will be fishing. Don’t look at just one. Check out three or four or even half a dozen. Fishing reports are not created equal either. Some of them are created solely to steer you to a product or service they are pitching. These will not dwell much on what you really need to know.

Look for the ones that are talking about where the fish are and what baits are being used. They will probably include trolling depths, trolling speeds and distance of lures back of the boat. Mixed in with this will be mention of fishing bait tackle shops. If they are mentioned you can pe pretty sure they are good because the writer of the fishing report doesn’t want you to have a bad experience from reading his report.

Almost all the fishing reports have a comment section. Use it to ask about the best shops for bait and information. Nearly all the fishing reports will be selling something in order to survive but it should not be the first thing you see when going to the site. Be social on these sites and when in the shops. Ask questions about fish location, lures, live bait and what the local charter captains are doing.

Information can be king in fishing also so get armed with current information so you don’t have an unproductive fishing trip.

You are right John the best info comes from locals and many are happy to help out. Good reminder for some of us though, thanks.

You are so right. I see fishermen come to Lake Erie armed with all the latest gear and go away pretty much empty handed. If they would just spend a little time in the bait shops and at the marinas/launch ramps they would be much better off

I agree John its the same for any fishing destination local knowledge is essential for a successful trip. OK you could arrive and be lucky on the day but spending a few minutes talking to bait store owners of whats working recently, where the fish have been lately and so forth. That way you can then hit the fishing with confidence.

It's nice to know the fishing community shares info on good fishing locations. I always thought they kept the prime fishing spots a local secret for fear of over fishing.
