Well that sucks. You gotta sign up to see the article. Tell you what...

Click here and then click on the first link that says "The Big Stores." That will get you in.

Sorry about that...

Well now, that's too bad. I always try to support the little guy. It is coming folks. The day when the only place you will be able to buy bait is from a store that boasts 5000 parking spaces.

That will put a crimp in your style.

The plight of the small bait shops is written on the wall. If they can't purchase at wholesale what the big boys sell for retail, what is the point? Hard to make a profit that way.

Bah!! Makes me sick. I would rather pay a few extra bucks ( and I do) to go to my local bait shop for some knowledge, friendly faces and tall tales. There is nuthin like the sound of those minnow tanks when ya stroll into a local bait shop. Marv's Minnows, Tales & Trails, and Ebner's Bait shop will always be my place to buy my license and my bait. As long as they are around anyway.
