Delighting Our Customers is our business

We carry Penn, Shimano, Tica, Daiwa, Okuma, Quantum, reels. Tica, Dawia, and Shakespeare rods. We have a good section of Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits, Berkley Power Bait, and Gulp. We also carry custom hand tied flies for both freshwater and saltwater. We also have a good stock of surf fishing rigs, sinkers, saltwater tackle and crabbing supplies. We carry LIVE BAIT for freshwater such as minnows, crayfish, and worms. Please see our Bait Status web page to see what is in stock. In the winter we will also have Ice Fishing supplies and baits. If we do not have something you want in stock we can and will order it for you.

We do rod and reel repairs. We are able to repair all types of reels. We can do a simple cleaning and lube all the way too extensive repairs. Rods we do it all from replacing a broken tip or guide to full rod rebuilds. To see more information please click here.

The New Jersey fishing reports are updated daily. The saltwater fishing report covers surf (IBSP and LBI mostly), jetty, and boats. The bay fishing report covers Barnegat and Great Bays and will include a crabbing report as well. The freshwater report covers local lakes, streams, and rivers.

Our address is 3133 Quakerbridge Road Store #2. We are right next to Brookwood Deli. To see a map of where we are located please click here.

Fisherman Fred's may have moved but we are the same great store you have used in the past. We want to be the number one bait shop in the Greater Trenton area and want to be your one stop bait & tackle. We still offer all the types of live bait and everything else we had at the old location, including the best customer service there is. Remember our motto is "Delighting Our Customers".

We are centrally located around most local lakes and streams. We are close to Lake Mercer, the Assunpink Creek, AMC, Miry Run Lake (tech pond), the lakes in Town Center, Rosedale Lake, Colonial Lake, D&R Canal, Delaware River, Lake Assunpink, Rising Sun, and Stone Tavern just to name a few. To see the location of these lakes you can use our lake locations web page by clicking here.

Please have a look around, if you do not see what you are looking for please email us.

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.

It is with a heavy heart that I have to tell everybody that our mascot, Miry the Crayfish has passed away. Crayfish live for 2 to 3 years and I had Miry for 3 years. So now we need to get another Miry or get some thing else as the mascot. Email me what you think it should be and maybe if we take your idea we will give you some thing. The fall striper run so far this year has been ok but not great. We have been selling a good amount of bait and lures for it. If you didn't know we do carry some saltwater baits, such as vacuum packed bunker and salted clams. For more information see our bait status web page. The link is at the top of the all web pages. Once the season is over don't forget we do rod and reel repairs. We are also going to be starting up our rod building classes after the up coming holidays are over. So check back to see what is going on here at Fisherman Fred's.
