    There's a pretty nice looking shop opening up on Manchester Road in the Save-A-Lot plaza. From what I could see, they're in the process of setting up and had a good sized selection of plastics. Anyone know the name/owner of this shop?

    That's a buddy of a friend of mine opening up the shop. I was told that the owner will have something for everyone's style of fishing, including a decent selection of Lake Erie tackle.

    I talked to my buddy a little while ago. The place is going to be called Land Big Fish. The owner's names are Jeff and Gary. The shop will be 8,000 square feet of fishing tackle. No opening date at this time, but I'll find out.

    It will be nice to have a specialty store that will probably provide a wider selection than wally world. I expect to pay a little increase in price, but if the service and product selection is there, so am I!

    Thanks for the update Het!

    Where is it exactly located? In relation to Norton Marine for example. I hope it lasts longer than other Manchester Rd. bait and tackle shops of yesteryear.

    Totally different. The newer gun store, The Gun Shop, is owned by the same guy that used to have The Deer Hunter.

    I stopped by the new store today. They weren't open for business yet, but I got a chance to speak with the owner.

    This place is huge, and they have everything. If you are a bass fisherman, you'll be in heaven. They had thousands of bags of soft plastics alone (three isles full). They had a huge selection of quality reels, with a very large selection of rods to boot. They had isle after isle of crank baits.

    Lake Erie fishermen will be pleased to know that also have a very nice selection of trolling spoons, as well as Dipsys, Jet Divers, snubbers, and Reef Runners.

    The grand opening will be September 22nd. They will have door prizes and some contests going on.

    I also told the new owner about OGF. He is anxious to check out the site and look into becoming a site sponsor.

    They are still stocking the shelves, but I snapped a few photos while I was there.
