Fred's Live Bait and Tackle has been a tradition with anglers fishing the Deer River-Chippewa National Forest Area for 50 years. You're only minutes away from great fishing spots like Lake Winnibigoshish, Leech Lake, Cass Lake, Bowstring and literally 1000 more lakes in Itasca County. The bait is always fresh and we have the tackle you need to find and catch fish. Serving both Retail and Wholesale Bait customers in North Central Minnesota, Fred's Bait can handle all of your fishing supply needs.
