Entering a bait and tackle store for some people can be a daunting task, similar to getting a physical in front of a classroom of medical interns. Yet others may feel right at home, almost as if they have stepped into the garage at a friend’s house.

From ceiling to floor, every inch of these shops is covered with the required gear to achieve the desired goal of capturing a fish. On one of the several pegboard covered walls are the artificial hard plastic baits in every color imaginable. They are hanging on hooks and organized by type and color similar to the fashion of one adorning a home with an infinite assortment of holiday decorations. There are chartreuse, yellow and red combinations, even something called electric chicken. There are numerous twitching, rattling, floating, suspending pieces of gear that not only catch fish, but also anglers.
