Anyone know the status of the store supposedly going in at Fork. When he did his pop up store back in March, he told me it would be up and running by May. Drove by today and didn't see the sign that used to sit on the site.

He has been kind of quiet on social media about the store as well. Probably focusing more on putting out baits

The sign has been on a trailer and someone has been parking it there every morning and taking it back every evening from what I've seen... I noticed that they are prepping for plumbing and electricity over last couple of days so it looks like things are moving forward.

As far as the lot goes.. Look at the proximity to of the other surrounding businesses to the road... There shouldn't be a problem where the forms are set. Plus, it's a deep lot with plenty of room.

Great baits but obviously I do not know "the rest of the story".

Trailer is there today, but it wasn't yesterday. That plumbing and electrical rough in has been there for months. The set back issue makes no sense to me either since it is in line with the building next door.

@Captainchunk , our plumbing was roughed in yesterday and our building is being delivered this Tuesday. We had some snags with the pemit for our driveway and plans for future contruction . We have a 4 acre lot and plans for future things. I truly appreciate the intrest and am absolutely excited about the future. Ive invested 20 years into fishing and building nothing but swimbaits. My store and staff are the most knowledgeable swimbait guys in the local area. We are a swimbait only business and are only interested it that. We specialize completely in swimbaits. We hope to educate and inspire everyone. We are the first swimbait store in the world and plan on carry ourselves in that manner. Keep an eye on our social media for updates and information. Thank you sincerely, Mickey Ellis
