On the back roads to the beach, there is Jim’s Bait and Tackle located at 35011 Roxanna rd. in Frankford, DE. Jim Mershon and his wife Sandy opened the tackle shop on their property in April. They are a family operated, and oriented business. New shops come and go, but this one is here to stay. Jim Mershon has years, and years of experience, having grown up in and around bait shops all of his life. His parents used to own the shop, Joann’s Bait and Tackle. Jim’s Bait and Tackle is located in an out building with a garage door they can open, giving it a nice “airy” atmosphere. They carry a full line of salt and freshwater gear. The area they are located in, is very good for freshwater fishing. Lots of small ponds dot the landscape near Frankford and surrounding towns. There is very little freshwater gear in any shop on that side of the bay.
They offer boating and marine supplies, along with boat and trailer storage. They are open … Monday thru Thursday 6 am to 7 pm.. Friday & Saturday 6 am to 8 pm… Sundays 6 am to 2pm … (302) 436-5050. This is neat family run store in a great location. Easy to get to from route 1, or on your way to the beach. Off the beaten path so to speak, so Jim’s Bait and Tackle can offer lower prices than most. This Labor Day weekend they will have some great sales. Stop in and see Jim and Sandy, tell them DSF sent you.
