Josh's bait shop
West Brookfield, Ma

                             All very good and lively bait and he has golden shinners for pike bait mainly of whatever your going to throw down pond shinners for. Also has a good array of gear to grab just before you hit the ice also has night crawlers and rosey reds. In all a very high recommendation to get bait at a very reasonable price.

I just found out today J J's bait on cresent st. in Brockton I open 7-12 Saturday and Sunday as long as the ice holds up no jumbos but decent size medium larger shiners. Tom's wholesale is usually the the place to go for the extra large if you don't mind paying a little over a buck apiece and having them trip your flags all day but as of last weekend he was all out of everything but very small small shiners have not called over to see if they got any in yet but he has a good selection of augars in stock along with many tip ups sleds safety cleats and spikes very good selection of equipment in stock

Arlington Bait and Tackle has just received a shipment of Max Traps. A big THANK YOU to Brian Maxham and hope the surgery went well, our prayers are with you.   We carry "The Max" which is made of white ash, "The Fisher"which is constructed of UHMW, a very tough plastic and "The Hybrid"which has an ash upright and the "H" made of the UHMW material.  These traps have a large spool and great trip mechanism.   These are probably the best traps on the market today.  Stop in and take a look be the first on your(ice) block to own some.
