New bait shop in Victoria

Who says small bait shops are a thing of the past? Not Nellie Thorne, who runs the new Depot Bait and Tackle store in Victoria, (309) 879-2401.

Thorne said the full-service shop will be open from one hour before sunrise to one hour after sunset seven days a week. ‘We’ll have minnows, crickets, leeches, waxworms and tackle,’ Thorne said. ‘If we don’t have what you want, we’ll get it.’

That’s welcome news for anglers who wet a line at nearby Snakeden Hollow.
