Hey ISA Guys,


Dick's is going to build a store on Rt.50 and George Rd. Estimated start date of March 2008.

Not good for remaining local bait shops in the area.

I dunno Mark, Dick's does a pretty poor job catering towards the sport fisherman. They don't carry higher end rods and reels and overstock on lures that don't have fish in many areas. We have about 6 or more in our area, I visit them about twice a year. I chose to shop online or ebay.


A good tackle shop will continue to do well. Fear not.

Lousy news , the camel is starting to get his nose into the tent .


I am definitely less than impressed by Dicks but unforunately they may be followed by other mega stores .


Support your local tackle store .
