If in the hustle and bustle of everyday business, we sometimes fail to slow down long enough to personally say thank you, please know that your patronage is never taken for granted. We would like to thank you from all of us at Fisherman Fred's LLC for giving us the opportunity to supply you with your fishing needs. Tight lines and we hope you hook that big one.
Well as you can see we have changed the name of this section. It is now Store News. That is because Fisherman Fred's may have moved but we are the same great
store you have used in the past. We still offer all the types of live bait we had and everything else, including the best customer service there is. Remember our
motto is "Delighting Our Customers". Hopefully in the near future we will be adding more product lines and maybe even different types of bait. If there is anything
you think you would use in the bait line, let us know and we will see if we can add it. We want to be the number one bait shop in the Greater Trenton area. We
want to be your one stop shop. As the year comes to a close, we would like to thank all of our customers for their support and for you to enjoy the Holiday season.
Seems some are having a problem finding us. Well we are right across Quakerbridge Rd. from Risoldi's Market. Directions and map are on our Contact web page. If you do have a problem finding me please call us at 609-570-8035.
