Fisherman Fred's may have moved but we are the same great store you have used in the past. We want to be the number one bait shop in the Greater Trenton area and want to be your one stop bait & tackle. We still offer all the types of live bait and everything else we had at the old location, including the best customer service there is. Remember our motto is "Delighting Our Customers".
We are centrally located around most local lakes and streams. We are close to Lake Mercer, the Assunpink Creek, AMC, Miry Run Lake (tech pond), the lakes in Town Center, Rosedale Lake, Colonial Lake, D&R Canal, Delaware River, Lake Assunpink, Rising Sun, and Stone Tavern just to name a few. To see the location of these lakes you can use our lake locations web page by clicking here.
Please have a look around, if you do not see what you are looking for please email us.
If in the hustle and bustle of everyday business, we sometimes fail to slow down long enough to personally say thank you, please know that your patronage is never taken for granted. We would like to thank you from all of us at Fisherman Fred's LLC for giving us the opportunity to supply you with your fishing needs. Tight lines and we hope you hook that big one.
Well it is the middle of October and some stripers are starting to be caught. My question to you is, are you ready? Make sure your hooks are sharp, that the hooks
and split rings on the plugs are good and not rusted, that you have leaders, and what ever else you need for the fall season. Right now the fresh water fishing is
doing very well and we are stocked with fathead minnows, medium and large shiners, and all types of worms for your fishing needs. For the saltwater people don't forget
we carry vacuum packed bunker and salted clams. We do carry eels but only a handful of people have asked for them so I may not have them this year. I have to buy a lot
to get a good price on them and it isn't worth it if no one is buying them. Once the season is over don't forget we do rod and reel repairs. We are also going to be
starting up our rod building classes after the up coming holidays are over. Also we will be going to early winter hours starting October 27. Please see the Store hours
web page for more information. So check back to see what is going on here at Fisherman Fred's.
