    The best little bait shop in Indy in my opinion! If you want good fresh bait and advice shop these guys. It's worth the drive. I don't know these guys personally I just shop there once in a while.

    Support your local bait shop over the mega big box super stores.

    I couldn't agree more about West Side Bait! It is one few, if not the last, family owned bait shops on this side of town that is properly stocked, and I have supported them for years.

    I would have a nervous breakdown if they ever closed!:eek:oooh::sad2::angry:

    Support your local bait shops!!!! Unless you enjoy the wally world experience!:smile2:

    I heard from a friend today that there was a bunch of left over product from the Show at the Fairgrounds that West Side is going to have on sale. I recommend getting there early, there are going to be some deals.

    I went down there today for a bit to see what was going on. They had a nice trout pond for kids, and more things were being set up. I'll see you tomorrow Scott, looking forward to your session on catfishing.

    I want to thank Scott for the educational seminar on targeting large catfish! I picked up some tips that will definitely help my fishing success and hopefully put more and bigger fish on my hook!:big_smile:

    Hey Scott,

    Sounds like I just missed this event...

    When is the next one scheduled?
    I usually go to shartz bait & tackle in noblesville which is closer to home.

    I am looking for heavier gear then they have to offer?:cool2:
