Favorite fishing shop

  1. A lot of us travel to fish but might not find the good shops not local to us.
    What and where is your favorite shop?

    For me, it's Daves Bait in Vermillion (rarely get there, but he's helped me) and Kames near the Akron/Canton airport.

    What shops suit you and where are they?
  2. Flathead King 06

    Flathead King 06 click...click...click

    Fishermans Quarters in dayton just off keowee st. and then here in springfield at C & J shoreline...they are really down to earth and will cut ya some nice deals...also if out of state, theres a shop over in Slate Run, Pa called Slate Run Tackle and Trout...one heck of a shop, they have an orvis fly shop in the back of it

    Dave's Bait in Vermillion is the one stop for me. I make it a point to stop in each time out and purchase a few new spoons or cranks each trip. He treats us well and have no need to stop anywhere else. His everyday passion is ours and always seems to point us in the right direction.

    Thanks Bait Dave........

  4. daves bait vermilion. hands down one of the top five shops ,I rate him #1. kames in north canton. gander/dicks in canton just don;t rate. maybe there just to far from the lake?

    Den's Sportsmans Outpost, Dave's Bait, and Cranberry Creek get 95% of my business. All very knowledgable Lake Erie Fisherman and good people !
  7. Erie Outfitters, hands down. Craig has the best prices around, plus a killer selection. If he doesn't have what you're looking for in stock, he'll get it.
  8. Fishermans Wharehouse on Williams Rd in Columbus and Mary's Bait Shop in Pancoastburg (Deer Creek area). These little shops tend to have a touch higher prices than the bigger stores but the service and knowledge are unbeatable. I'd rather give my money to the small private shops than the big chain stores anyhow. Fishermans Wharehouse gets my money for most my fishin gear and Marys gets it for my bowhunting goods.
  9. Cripple Creek for sure down here and Dave's Bait at the big pond.
  10. DAM that was fast!!! beat me to it !!! i agree on both!!!:D

    When I lived in columbus and fished hoover I loved going to the old dutchman. I remember going there as a kid with my father as well. Good prices plus they made some good baits in house. I don't know if its still there but the old Red bank on hoover as well. Good people use to own them places too bad.

    Now i go to C&J shore and the boat house. Both great places.
