Tackle Shop Reviews for Lakefront Bait - Waukegan, IL

Poor Service at Lakefront Bait


This place has the saddest employees. Did not anything about salmon fishing. The owner was crabby. Sorry I bothered him for anything. Trust me I will not be back. Went right around the corner to a shop that had a very helpful employees and i found out one is a charter boat captain and fishes on Lake Michigan and has been for over 25 years. What a difference. Just north of the launch ramps about 200 feet away. I will only go to the salmon stop east. Very nice girl that works there - never crabby like the lakefront shop is.
