Who We Are!
We opened our doors in 1997 with only $250.00 worth of Inventory. We set out to supply the Indianapolis Angler's with a real Bait Shop environment. The Bait Barn is a family owned Mom & Pop Bait Shop. Since then we have worked hard to try to keep prices at their very lowest to give you the best deal possible on all your fishing tackle needs. We started shipping across the country to provide angler's with top quality Catalpa worms from our supplier The Catawba Gold Bait Company. We opened our first online store in 1999 under the domain www.baitbarn.com. A year later we decided to open a different site on a Yahoo account instead to save money. WHen sales increased we decided to reopen The Bait Barn online but theoriginal domain was out of our price range. So now we have www.thebaitbarn.com and have been serving the online community for many years. Shipping Live and Frozen bait across the country and for a time globally until a few bad credit cards passed our way. Currently we only ship in the continental United States for security reasons.
