    Default Richards Bait Shop

    I drove by Rickards Bait shop on Rt 53 in Port Clinton yesterday. I was in some traffic but it appeared with a quick glance the parking lot was roped off and I think the for sale sign was for the bait shop, and not the Gateway restaurant next door. Is that correct the shop is closed and up for sale?
    Thanks

    I can't say as I blame Rickards for selling. That is one busy place. They probably would like to spend more time fishing. Owning a business like that is pretty rough when fishing is what you love to do ! I hope someone else takes it over, it is pretty handy.

    That's a bummer! I've been stopping in there every year since 1988. The lake wouldn't be the same to me without my morning visits with Ric. Damn!

    Rickards Bait IS for sale but IS well stocked and open for the 2018 season. Gateway Restaurant next store has been sold. Seems to be a lot of confusion out there. WE'RE still here!

    That's great news! You'll be seeing the black Hummer pull in soon. Can't wait to get this year started. Should be a good one!
