New Cumberland Lock and Dam Baitshop

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by benpecc1, Nov 7, 2008.

  1. Are there any bait shops near the new cumberland lock and dam on the Ohio river? Also, what works best there?
     
  2. The only one I know of is the gas station with bait in the back. Take the first exit and make a right when you take the bridge to cross over to the WV side. Cant go wrong with shiners.

    Correct me if im wrong someone.

    Been to that gas station myself. I'd heard he no longer sells bait. I generally get mine before leaving my area, than I don't have to wonder if they have bait, or wonder about quantity or quality issues. I find it hard to believe though, that being that close to the river no one has bait, and trust me, I've talked to many locals and there is NONE!
     
  12. Other than the place neocats mentioned, there really isn't anywhere to get bait around here, which forced me to buy a cast net and now catch my own... There is a place down by Pike Island Dam called the Ohio River Bait Company but is 30 min south of the New Cumberland locks.

    Why not take the bait with you, it will save you time and probably some money.This time of year the minnows and shiners will last a long time ..........Mark
