Again...guys he is very receptive! Stop in his shop, meet him and talk. Posting on an internet forum about it wont change anything and may even go un noticed. In small business face to face communication and customer feedback go a long way in helping the customer AND the business owner. This is our ONLY shop left in our area. No more Round Valley bait and boat, no more Behre, no more Sportsman Rendezvous. Lets support this one ore were screwed. He has a good amount of tackle and will order you what he doesent. He just ordered me 2 Avet EXW 30s. I could have got them anywhere and saved 20$ but I went to him because hes there when I need him. SUPPORT small business, go and talk to hi.!!!

I would love to give a local shop business but when it opens at 10, I am on
the water (as many fishermen are) 4 hours already.
I would like to support the local shop also but the opening times are not good for many fishermen that I know. Hopefully the hours get better but the owner has to do what he considers is best for business, I wish them luck 👍

Someone needs to modify a cellphone charging locker that you open with PIN to accommodate live bait. Preorder bait the day before and get a a locker number and code messaged to you to pick up anytime after 10pm. That would help night guys and early risers. Accept you'd probably end up with a locker full of dead herring. Sharktank?

Tommy Scotty myself and all the guys that help Tommy out down there we all came from efingers we seen it all..... Tommy was there for long time and knows the business and sport very well. When we first opened he was open 530 am while word was getting out just to clear that up, he just recently changed the hours because of the winter, if you ever worked in a sporting goods store in winter you know it could make you wanna jump off a bridge.... Just like Gary said support the little guys... If you guys are really worried about getting bait talk to tommy! There was talk of putting a bait machine in front of the store with worms and butter worms and that kind of stuff. Hell he's such a cool guy if you called him up and paid and said leave me 2 dozen shiners outside ahead of time I bet you he would do it! Stop in talk to him and check em out, all topshelf items Shimano gloomis St Croix avet etc....

This is a great idea...have it setup with aerated bait buckets that would work like the propane exchange systems at Home Depot...you would buy the bait bucket initially and leave the empty one with your new order....Mark Cuban??

I will surely give him a call to set something up for an early pickup.
In addition want to support his business like I said before not too many
around anymore.

I made my first trip to Dows on Sunday for some ice fishing gear and bait and have to say, that place is great. Not only did they get me fully outfitted but after I sliced my finger sharpening my auger blade the woman working there took me in the back and helped bandage me up. Good people there, I will be back for sure.

Dows has always been a great shop. They provide info on conditions
and try to put you on the bite, stocked, they have everything, and
hours of operation - open early close late.
