Hi every one, This just a reminder to visit your local Bait & Tackle shop.I know many of you do and there are some that dont. I for one owned a Bait & Tackle Shop and my biggest complaint was wal-mart & K-Mart is cheaper. And this is true,BUT the tackle shops have to pay more for there items than wal-mart and k-mart they can,t buy them by the 1000,s like they do. And also the rods and reels are made diff, for the bait shop than they are for wal-mart and k-mart they are a better quality at the bait shops. The reels that you buy from wal and k-marts are made with plastic sleves where the ones for the shops have at least 1 to 2 ball bearings instead of the sleves. I understand that alot just cant afford the prices at the local bait shops. I cant afford them eather but i still go. My wife works for wal-mart here in my little town. I dont buy equipment there because it seems i have to take it back because it stops working or something. the local bait and tackle shops are special places and are a dieing breed. there are not to many of them left and the marts will drive them out sooner or later. then there will be none. So visit your local Bait & Tackle Shops today. Let me know where your Bait & Tackle Shop is, Mine here is Riverland Bait and Tackle shop. Thank you for reading this .
