Jenk’s Bait and Tackle


Located conveniently between the Chippewa Flowage, Round Lake, and Callahan Lake, our knowledge of the area’s waters has been a help to visitors for 75 years!

Jenk’s Bait & Tackle has been in business for 75 years! We are your St. Croix Rod Headquarters! We have a complete line of fishing tackle and live bait (including indigenous wild caught minnows, suckers, and chubs) and are located just 13 miles East of Hayward, Wisconsin. Our rod and reel prices are competitive with, and often priced lower than the discounters and catalogs. Also, as of October of 2014, we are also offering basic gun repair and special order firearms for all of your firearms needs whether it be hunting, home and self-defense, or sport shooting. Whether you seek hunting and fishing information, want to hire a guide to fish the Chippewa Flowage or surrounding Hayward Lakes, or if you simply want to chat about the Hayward area, we’re here 7 days a week to help make your stay a pleasant one. Give us a call at (715)-462-3055 for more information, or stop by and see for yourself. Whether you are a newer to the area, or you are one of our most nostalgic visitors, we would love to have you here to outfit you and your family for a great northwoods adventure.
