My names Chris I am one of the owners of this bait shop and I'd like to address your issues. 1) We are the only bait shop who packs all our bait on a daily basis to make sure this exact problem doesn't happen. If you did grab a pack of crawlers which contained dead bait(because no matter how careful we are bait does unfortunately die) why did you not mention it to us and the problem would have been taken care of immediately? 2) As far as the minnows go.. Do we count EXACTLY? No.. But if u ask for 2 Dozen you will receive between 26-30 minnows. The days of bait shops giving away minnows is coming to an end as our bait prices continue to rise along with everything else. If you would like to discuss this in person I would be more than happy to sit down aNd have a chat with you. I am there 7 days a week from 6am-1pm. I am interested however to hear your side of how we "cheaped you out" if you received 24+ minnows when you asked for 2 dozen. If you needed more you could have simply asked for 3 Dozen. When you purchase a dozen night crawlers you get 12, when buy a gallon of gas you do not get an extra 1/2 gallon. I fail to understand where the entitlement is coming from for free minnows. If you could please let me know I would much appreciate your input.

Chris Thank you for maning up.I have posted 3 times to you but they just go off in to space.Last time MY bitch is someone counting minnows.One minnow two minnows.I don,t count the worms in your face to see if a doz is a doz.Its just a lack of class.I am 65 years old and I have never had someone count my bait.

I didn't know about this site until a friend told me yesterday afternoon. I can understand your point that in the past your minnows were never counted. But please understand my point... Prices continue to rise due to increasing restrictions & taxes on minnows, fuel surcharges are becoming ridiculous, we will always give you a few extra minnows but if we do it like the past and give away many minnows we may as well simply close our doors. As I said I'm sorry that's the way you feel and it's not a lack of class it's how we must operate because the state of Illinois likes to put additional taxes onto everything they can.

Chris, i totally get where you are coming from. the price of everything is ridiculous. you examples about not getting an extra half gallon of gas puts this all in perfect prespective. i have been to your bait shop several times. honestly i do think the prices are a bit higher than i would expect. i do however totally understand that you are a small business in braidwood and paying a little more is to be expected. when i go to menards its cheaper than ace hardware, but its a half hour drive. i do remember the days when bait stores would give you 50+ minnows when you asked for 2 dozen. i actually only wanted 2 dozen and the rest would go to waste. im just glad that there is a bait store in braidwood. i hate having to buy bait from a gas station. keep doing what you are doing and dont let people bring you down.

why would you go online to complain about this mans business? do you honestly think that everyone that owns a business reads topix everyday? if you have a complaint amybe you should "man up" and just tell the person working behind the counter when you are there. im sure you were just too chicken to be confrontational. it is much more easy to complain when you are sitting in your chair in front of your computer screen.

also, im sure they have a telephone number you could have called to complain on as well. dont assume that topix is the way to get your point across to the business owners. its really just a way to bitch to other internet trolls like myself.

Any citizens who have been in the new bait shop please give a review of the business.
I have been buying bait since it opened and have never felt that they shorted me. I usually buy 1 doz. crappie minnows and 1 doz. med. bass and have never used up what I thought was enough when I bought them. There crawlers have always been firm and fresh and wax worms will last days. I always try to patronize the local stores and I feel your doing a great job. Thank You for starting a buisness up during these hard times. John T.

Yep... I have tried the place twice. Both times I swear the counted a perfect dozen minnows. I have not gone back. Angelos gives you a mess of minnows, and that's what brings me back again & again. I figured the guy & woman ust need to learn that counting minnows discourages regular fishermen from returning.... It's a very Bad business decision to count & give just an even dozen.

If they put a sign in the window stating buy a dozen & get 1/2 dozen free, their business would tripple. < Hey, minnows are dirt cheap in the bulk they purchase them at!

what about worms... when i buy a dozen i want 3 dozen. when i buy a case of pop i want 36 cans in it. when i buy a pound of sugar i want 2 pounds. come on... everything in bulk is cheap. they should give me everything for free and screw their profit. this is the u.s.a.

lol. sounds stupid doesnt it.

As i frequent this business, i never had any issues
either with live bait or prices.
I believe in small business, i believe in taking
pride in my town, and i buy local.
Noing these people, if you had any issuses, they
would of corrected them A.S.A.P
I sometimes shop at the big guys, and they don't
always have what i'm looking for.
That being said, i can go to T&C'S, ask to check
out their suppliers catalog.
I pay alittle more , BUT I GET WHAT I WANT.
They help me , i help them.
