"I have been going to R & R bait for thirty years. They have always provided excellent service with a smile! R & R is my go to for all my fishing needs (and wants) for any season!"

"I don't remember a day that the bait store wasn't there to supply me and my friends with quality live bait for our annual fishing trip at Lake Erie. They make it easy to call ahead and place an order for all the live bait we needed to take with us in convenient packages ready to go!"

Sarah W., Buckeye Lake, OH

"When I moved to Columbus I was new to the style of fresh water fishing, I had no idea where to even start as far as location, bait, or even what kind of fish were the best to catch! The members of R & R made it very easy for me to learn and understand the best way to catch them all! But most importantly they helped me get set up with new tackle!"

Kyle M., Columbus, OH
