Itchin’ for Open Water? We have the Bait!

Posted by  / 


Anyone itching to get out in the boat? We certainly are! Here is a little throw back of the beautiful brown trout Jack landed on Maranacook lake last spring!

Spring bait is in and we’re fully stocked so if you’re on the hunt for open water this weekend stop on by Jack Traps in Monmouth for your bait. We have everything you’ll need to land the big one including live smelts & shiners, crawlers, small worms, and preserved smelts & shiners. We also have on hand some great trolling supplies and spincast rods all ready to go! The ice is finally breaking up here in our area and we’ll be in the boat before you know it! We’re open 7am – 3:30pm Monday thru Saturday and by appointment Sundays. Call ahead 933-9499!

Spring has Sprung- New Hours!

Posted by  / 


Well folks, it looks like this winter has finally decided to come to an end. As of this week our store hours will be 7am – 3:30pm Monday – Saturday; by appointment only Sundays (call ahead!). There is still lots of ice out there but shorelines and weak areas have started opening up. Anyone taking advantage of the long season we have had we urge to be very careful! We currently have Emerald shiners and Large shiners in stock and plan to carry live bait, pickled bait, night crawlers & trout worms through the rest of the year – we will have some smelts in for spring fishing soon! Also we have some great trolling and casting rods all rigged and ready to go in stock, and of course all of the highest quality ice fishing gear you can find!

Ice Fishing Open After March 31st!

Posted by  / 


Well folks, it looks like the next ice age is officially here! It’s the end of March and there is about 3 feet of ice in most areas. With the weather we are having it seems like it’s making more every day. Everyone should be aware that with law changes this year there are many great bodies of water that are OPEN TO ICE FISHING AFTER MARCH 31st. Unless otherwise stated in the law book, any lake or pond in southern and eastern counties is open to ice fishing until the ice is gone (you do need to get your ice shacks off by the 1st though). Although many bait shops have thrown in the the towel for the season we know that there is plenty of good fishing left – our bait tanks are fully stocked with smelts, emeralds and shiners of all sizes and we will be open 6am 7 days a week until the ice is gone!

Plenty of Live Bait Left!

We have plenty of nice BIG shiners here at Jack Traps to finish off the ice fishing season – lots of ice here in Maine so at least a month left of fishing here! We also have lots of Mediums and Emeralds so stop on by. Open 6AM 7 days a week.
