General

So sending out a quick update. The last several weeks I have received many phone calls inquiring as to the status of Jenk’s Bait and Tackle due to the Coronavirus outbreak regarding our hours. Come the Wednesday before Opening weekend we will resume our regular hours and we will be open for business for the season! Hours will not change nor will our status of being open. We will be open to serve you and your family and friends for another memorable season. Another update….we got a significant amount of thaw this morning and minnow trapping should begin this weekend or early next week!!!
