Wouldn't say it's very good for trailer parking from the lot I know of. Maybe they'll change it....
I'm going to head straight past and go to Angler's Point. Think the SDI at 16mi does just fine I'll help out the other bait shop

When they put the round about it they shifted the main road out away from the building some and redid the parking lot for the land lord.so there is more room then what used to be there.

Is that the location right around the corner from the Anglers and Archers bait shop? If it is, I'm wondering if there is enough business for both to survive?
There has been two bait shops there for sometime. So there is plenty there for everyone.

Gonna be interesting. SDI, Angler's Point and Cabela's all within about a mile of each other. Definitely give SDI and Angler's the edge on bait needs in the area, but C's on tackle, etc. selection and other stuff. We'll just have to wait and see how the future pans out..........everybody has their preferences, so pricing and customer satisfaction will be paramount, IMHO. Good Luck to all!:)

I went into that Cabelas for the first time this past weekend & I wasn't impressed. They had far less tackle, rods, & reels then the one in Dundee.

I agree, but that's only because the Chesterfield store is about a third the size of the Dundee one. They still have more rods, reels and fishing tackle in general than SDI and Anglers combined. What I like about places like Anglers & SDI is they'll carry more tackle that is specific to the SCR, DR and LSC. Bait is a no-brainer.........SDI & Anglers hands down. I really used to like Lakeside at 10 & Jefferson especially when Larry Sawicki owned it, but they've really gone downhill the last few years, both in what they carry and in any customer service.

Can you fish the docks behind the store?
Musta seen at least 15 guys at Anglers on the last warm weekend of the month a few weeks back. No one brooming them away, so I'd say "yeah" the docks must be open for the shore guys.

I hope Angler's keeps their "bargain" table going. A good place to pee away some cash on some random lures. I found 3 knock-off bull dawg muskie lures this past summer - $5 a piece! One worked, which is worth the throw away money if one should be lost. Like to see SDI offer up some unique finds like that as well. Yes, they're right around the corner from each other now, and SDI can handle the live bait scenario better, or seems to. Hey, it's competition!
