Kasst Bait Store

Postby fishlips » Apr Sun 10, 2016 8:33 pm

Just a heads up,anyone going fishing around LaPorte,Kasst hasn't been open or had any bait for a couple months now,not sure whats up,if its gonna close or just problems for a while?? Even as bad as it smells in there,I hate to see it go,its the only bait store in LaPorte,so get your bait somewhere else.You may get lucky when ringing the doorbell that someone might answer,if so they still have tackle and stuff,but NO BAIT

That sucks. The mom n pops shops are becoming a thing of the past. I have to get my minnows at a pet store....
Keep fishing and keep smiling! Take care of one another folks!

So what bait shops do we have left in LaPorte county? There's the one at Catch-um lake out by me in Fish Lake, one on Highway 4 by me, but you have to be lucky and catch them while they are there, have to try and get bait ahead of time and keep it alive--

Yep,Catch Em, Tonys [Chiefs ] on Hwy 12 west of M City,Tony wholesales to most bait shops in NW Ind and SW Mich.and has a pretty nice store going now. Country Bait in Valpo,north of town. Theres a new one,not sure of the name on south side of Valpo now. some gas stations in LP have a small fridge with worms and waxies. Thats it as far as I know .I do know Tony has been wanting to open a shop in LP, now that stinkys is closed he will probably be looking for a place to rent out, he had told me a while ago that rent here is awfully expensive,its a tough buissness to make a buck at anymore.I wish them all luck.Support them as much as possible,not just bait but tackle as well.Thats just it Kingfisher,have to be set up to keep your bait alive anymore,I keep my minnows in my beer fridge with an aerator ran to it,change water every few days,keeps them alive for weeks.

My buddy just told me a Sign on Kasst door says go to Tonys,not looking good.I have had Steves cell number for years and he allways returns my calls,but the last couple months he hasn't returned any messages at all???
