Fishin Franks Bait & Tackle    




Due to the pick-up truck landing on our building
then exploding into flames we will be closed for a while.

What is Happening now? We are waiting on insurance money.
We have a building under contract, But without the insurance money, we can not afford to get it.
Our plan is to be open this fall, November is likely, I guess with clovid and all of the weird and strange stuff of 2020
I should not expect to have things go in a timely manner, However we remain hopeful everything will work out and

Fishin Franks will be back.

IF the money does not come in our plan is to open a small  version of the store until the whole of the insurance money comes in. But a small store has all of the problems and no real profit for the effort and finding a place, which will allow bait tanks, which have their own essence "aroma" ok smell, which seems to penetrate everywhere over time is difficult, So a stand alone building is our best bet. A temp store would cost thousands of dollars in labor and materials to do. and we are barley able to afford to get the larger building so that is why, we are waiting for the entire insurance money, as opening a small temp store
could put getting a real store out of reach.

We miss you all, and hope to see you all soon in a different building in a different Fishin Frank, Not bigger and better
Just different place with the same ole Fishin Franks uniqueness

Thank you  Fishin Frank
