A friend of mine is feeling the crunch from all the big stores, he is going to have to give up his tackle business if it doesn't pick up this year.

His bait business probably will survive but he needs our help, It's Outlaw bait in Colorado Springs. I am not involved in anyway with this business. I'm only telling fellow fisherman the small man is getting eaten alive by the walmart type's.

I have been buying my bait from him for 11 years, directly and indirectly. Mikinaak  8)

I hate wal-mart.
Absolutely no help area is always a mess, and does not even have tackle that pertains to the area.

I'll try to stop down there when I go to eleven mile.

Which leads me to ask, are there any good bait/tackle/equipment stores in south metro DTC area in denver?

I went to a pet supply store today and found that you can get worms, mealworms, crickets, and wax worms for something like $3 for 50. Its called Pet Ranch and is over off of Independence and 58.

Don't forget about Valley Country Tackle at the intersection of Parker and Quincy. A real hassle to get to right now with construction but Louise needs our support in there right now more than ever!!!

She is great but that other guy that works there sux. When ever I leave there I always wonder why I spent $ there. The guy is rude and no help at all. Again, shes way cool but shes not always there.

Does Louise know this? is it an employee, husband, friend?

Cuz if I go there and feel that way too, I may never go back, First impressions are big, and friendly helpfull are the key for the little guy to keep it going.
If I want to be ignored, or abused, I'll just go to Wal-Mart, or Gander Mountain.

If anyone knows her, and is brave should mention something to her about this.

Im not sure who he is. He's an older guy. Maybe in his 60's or so?

Hes not a bad guy but for sure not someone who should be in the customer service business.

I know what you mean Jay! I felt the same way when I went in there! He has a very strange attitude!

...kinda funny...he has always been more than helpful to me...in fact I was in there Tuesday and he helped me find some stuff...had to call him back this morning because I thought I left my sunglasses...he looked around but unfortunately they werent there...I think he is more the quiet and shy type...maybe not the best for customer service...he told me Louise's mom had been sick and recently passed away...so if you go in there dont say where have you been?!...so that she will probably be working more...

who you going to askwhat size minnow is catching Pikeview Crappie?or the Power Bait colors used in Prospect or any local out of the way lake
Or where is everybody catching wiper? Wal Mart does know, Sportman Warehouse doesnt care.Its the Local Bait Shops!!!!!!! I have seen 3 go out
of business because of big stores and 1 accident,and its hurting the future fisher person because if you dont know they wont go.
I got to Outlaw all the Time!!!!He helpeed me with my boat,and is the best at letting me know whats going on in the area.I will and other should continue to buy bait and tackle form OUTLAW its part of what make fishing great.
