Default Bait Shop

Just heard that Behere Bait and Tackle closed, This sad news happening
too often. Meltzers after 101 years , Behere only after 5 years. Getting
almost impossible to get bait anymore. Is there a bait shop open near
RV and Spruce.

Yea, go see Tommy at the sporting life. He's got plenty of bait. And he's got solid open water tackle and gear to outfit you for just about any freshwater fishing in NJ. He's on eastbound rt 22 in white house. Same plaza as white house flooring and just before The Farm mall construction site.

Seems like a good shop, I just do not understand why a bait shop
is opening at 9:00 or 10:00 a.m., 6:00 or 7:00 a.m. should be the time
to open. As far as Behere always sad to see a shop close and he had great hours, opened by 5:00 and 6:00.

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.

Sounds Good.
Sporting Life sounds like a shop that cares about their customers and
all Sportsmen as well.

That sucks that Behere closed. It was very convenient to Round Valley and other area waters. But it always seemed they were operating on a shoe string. Great place to buy bait, but limited selection of tackle. I guess there isn't enough profit in largely selling worms, shiners and herring.

But as for their competetiion in the area, their hours suck. I see now that their website calls it "winter hours" but those were the hours last summer if I recall correctly.

A lot of Round Valley and Spruce Run anglers are about to call it a day by the time they open mid week.

It's a tough business these days with BPS/Cabelas, Dicks and Amazon, but there should be a place for a full service tackle shop that is also open early enough to serve the the fishig public. Right now there are few options in the vicinity to buy bait if you want to go ice fishing early in the morning. Hoping the new place can fill that niche as well.

That is my biggest problem, hours of operation. Yes some local shops
provide great service but they need to be open. I hope they realize this and
give us the opportunity to support their business.
