Very good store. We always head up there on our way to cordova Lake, and their stock almost never disappoints. Just the other week, I went to the crowe and stopped at the place to pick up some tacke and bait for fall musky, but when the cashier asked me what I was going for, I told them 'pike and musky' to which they gave me a northland bucktail spinner for free. They asked me to send them pictures of what I caught with it. But I have yet to have any luck. But hopefully, I can get a good pike or musky on the bucktail before the freeze. So yeah, it's a really good store. The folks running it are always nice, and the prices are the best in Ontario I'd say.

A real gem with all your hunting and fishing needs. Staff are super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. You won't find any newbie shaming here, come in and relax!

Went with hubby to take a look and found a really nice shop with a bit of everything. Bigger on the inside than it looks from outside, there is a treasure of everything hunting and fishing at reasonable prices. Love the unexpected items that are available for the browsing spouse.

Owner was very kind! I was in the area and needed minnows and they were about to close. I called and told her I’d be there soon and she said she would wait for me and close 15 minutes later. She also prepared the minnows for me before my arrival. Highly recommend this place and their small minnows (didn’t need the large sized ones as the small ones worked well!)


Lee Bowman on 22-Mar-18

Always super friendly and great pike minnows :)


Robert Vesterfet on 27-Apr-16
Sandra & Chris are extremely pleasant to deal with. Their store is full of class A items for hunting and fishing. If you haven't stopped in, I would highly recommend you do. You will not be disappointed. Great people, Great store. Great products. Give them a try. I did with my grand kids and the service was excellent. Sandra made my grand kids feel very special!

On Wed out looking at a cottage property and driving around stumbled on this bait shop just outside Marmora, great place, nice staff, plan on returning when we need items for sure. Understand they are planning to add more space including guns for sale.

Today I visited your store and was greeted with friendly service and got the items I needed for the upcoming spring turkey hunt season. Thanks

Over the past year I have started to buy all my fishing and hunting gear from Sandra,the number one reason is service, and of course great products. If you love to fish and hunt you have to check out Chris's Live Bait. Matt, Stirling, On

Hi there never been to the bait store but i can tell you from workin' with Chris and getting to know him, he's one of the nicest, honest fellers i've met, so i'm sure him and his staff(wife and kids)will make you feel right at home. Darren Little Britain, On.
