    2.00 more at Bobby's than bass pro for a bull dawg.......if you think that is over prized in the middle of no where than I guess we will have to agree to disagree.
    Ryan says he will be matching the big guys pricing.
    And my point was more directed at the guy that keep claiming that you could not find any tackle at eagle. Trust me I live here he is giving out incorrect info.

    On the side of the Blue Herron, right on the docks infront of safeway. ( docks on lake, not the river ) Not any real signage yet, just have to walk to the side of the blue herron.

    Hi everyone,

    Darcy here, the GM of Figure 8 Baits. Thanks everyone for the positive comments!

    The shop is going to be about 80% Musky related with rest being Bass, Walleye and live bait (suckers too!!). Our prices will be very close to the major shops South of the boarder. ...no we can't completely match their prices, but they will be very close. In fact as I type this I'm waiting for NEW 2011 Canadian pricing from several major manufactures due to strong Canadian dollar.

    Because we are still not "officially open" yet, there are no signs on the building (Northland and Shimano banners are up right now)... but our doors are open and business is welcome! (our official grand opening will be March 2011) Here is a link to the Kenora webcam you can see the building in... http://www.gokenora.com/webcam.shtml once you have control of the camera click the "Downtown Kenora" preset. We are the blue store on the bottom of the screen with the docks in front of it. There are 38 dock slips that our customers are free to use for the day.

    Me and Ryan are Musky Crazy...we've dedicated the shop to Musky fishing bringing in most major players in the Musky world. Just to name a few... Stealth, H20, River Run, Suick, Bobbie Baits, Big Game, Monster Lures, Red October, Lee Lures, Musky Inno, Drifter, Grandma, Legend, Shack Attack, Chaos, Mayhem, Dadson, Bait Rigs, BS Willy, Bucher, Tackle Industries, Llungen, Phantom etc etc etc... More and more arriving daily!

    Hope to see some of you up here!

    Darcy Cox

    We've been told we WILL be able to get suckers... BUT, they have not been guaranteed. It's kind of a new request for our bait trappers. It would definitely be a good idea to call ahead of time to make sure we have them in. 807-468-3762

    ...I will be trying my hardest to get them for the beginning of October.

    Hav'nt been to Eagle Lake but on trip all across western Canada on the way to Alaska and on trips to northern Saskatchewan or a half dozen trips to Ontario (Winnipeg River, Lake Of The Woods)I personally havn'nt seen many tackle shops in 8 trips and thousands of miles.I'm a bait shop junky i've been in lots up and down hwy 29 in the Dakota's Reed's in Walker,tons of little ones in western Wisconsin,Thorn Bros. and a few others in the Twin Cities.Rollie & Helens and a million others in Northern Wisconsin. I guess I have a couple more to put on my list.
