Yes, unfortunately that bait shop closed. The one I hear about all the time is called the Feed Loft. http://www.feedloft.com/

There used to be one on Lorenzo Road. It was open last year I believe. Really nice people. I'll see if I can find the info.

As for bait, "cut bait" is the absolute most popular bait at Heidecke. Every time you see someone walking away with a huge stringer of fish, they were almost all caught on cut bait. Hybrids, catfish, etc.

They have bait at the gas station right there at Lorenzo exit including minnows. Angelo's in Wilmington and Feed loft in channohan.
To fish or not to fish......that's a stupid question.

I would suggest Angelos like JB said. It's only five minutes from that exit on 55. It's actually the same exit I get off to go to Angelo's.

If you are taking I-55 exit at Rt6 and take it west - Feed Loft is just down the road on the left. To get back on I-55 keep going west on 6 and take a left onto Bluff Road - you will meet back up with I-55. Of course you can always backtrack as well.

Angelos is another good baitshop so you can't go wrong at either spot.
