The following are bait and/or tackle shops in the Toledo to Lorain area. They are here to be of help to you in finding them. I have no business connection with any of them. I have done business with them and find them to be good places to purchase my fishing needs.

If you know of others and feel they are honest and fair in dealing with the fishing public please let me know. I would like to see, name, address, phone, directions to store and web site if they have one. I will add them to the list. We did this with fish cleaners and have had some positive feedback.
