Great place to get bait. The guy's even tell you where the best spot to catch fish. What bait to use

Great place, well organized. Friendly staff. Four stars because there is always fishing rods in front of the freezer door. Open the door and knock them down.

We stopped by yesterday with a group of 10. Our summer program for youth with disabilities is focusing on career exploration. Andrew was awesome! He patiently answered our questions and explained to us about his job. He even let us see the fish tanks and told us how he takes care of them. You can be sure we are now planning to rent paddle boats there as an activity for fun!
