About Us

John's Bait & Tackle, is located on the edge of Faribault, MN. It is located in the old creamery on route to six Rice County lakes - (Cannon, Cedar, French, Hunt, Roberds, Wells). What better place to have a bait shop, than one you can easily drive up to, get your bait and head straight out to the lake. You will be able to buy all the basic bait such as minnows (various sizes), leeches, worms, jigs, fishing poles, reels and line, and of course a license. We provide a convenient driveway that allows you to pull in and out easily! The goal is to provide items needed for summer & winter fishing.

If you don't see what you want on the shelf, ask to have it ordered!
