Lack of tackle shops

Steve had a Tackle Shop in the 80's, first in the front of a home on Main, later on a store on Lakeport think it was, catered mostly to the salmon and steelhead crowd.

 

edit : that vintage the Fenwick HMG 1441 blank was really popular in the 12 footer, it was a true noodle rod, 2-6 pound line.

 

 

He was about the Fenwicks for sure, then G Loomis before he move onto Port Burwell for charter fishing. Yes, long time ago. 😄

The various dollar stores have all kinds of tackle, and let me tell you, do they ever produce. Can't believe how many gobies and sunfish I get on them.....  

JR's in Welland used to be a decent place to get stuff as well.

Was called Wells Bait but not there any more was actualy by there yesterday and the building is gone

Last time I heard of him he had a shop at the junction of Hwy 6 and Hwy 24 south of Simcoe.

I didn't realize that they were closed on Wed...........Hopefully they will change their schedule, if they already haven't...................

Interesting. Would have to go for a drive and drop in to see what he's selling. Name of shop?

im Done with bass pro, walked out with nothing the last two times I went.  Ct their prices are ridiculous, thought big box stores were suppose to be cheaper.  I hate how most tackle shops don’t open till 9:00am and I wanna be on the water by 6am then they close at 5:00 and I work till 7.  

Used to be tackle shops were open by 7am or earlier.  Many would have a pot of coffee brewing.  They would also shut down early, so the owner could get in some time on the water. That does not happen in Niagara. I've thought about running a shop, but I'm getting too old for that, and the son has lost interest.
