Here are some of the most common questions we receive. If you do not see your question and answer here, drop us an email from our contact page.
Is there a guarantee? Yes, 100%. Satisfaction guaranteed. All items listed carry our money back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied, simply return the product/s and your money will be promptly refunded.
How much is shipping? Domestic (U.S.) shipping is normally around $3.00 - $3.50 total for normal sized lures being shipped. A little more for giant lures. All U.S. orders of only $25 or more get free shipping. International shipping is calculated at checkout depending on your choice of delivery options. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Where are you located / where is your store? We are in Neenah, Wisconsin but do not have a physical store. We sell only online at this site, mybaitshop.com. Given today's virtual world it is much easier for us to keep costs down and ship worldwide.
Do you offer gift cards? Yes we sure do. They are available starting as low as $10 and as high as you want. Mix and match amounts if you don't see the one you want. They are delivered electronically and can be emailed on or printed out. They never expire and are good towards anything we have in stock. You can find them here: GIFT CARDS
Are you a retailer? No. We are not a retailer. We are collectors of old fishing lures and a fishing family. What you see for sale on this page is the extras we find when we buy and trade lures. UPDATE: We have recently begun stocking some newer lures such as Bagley, Bill Lewis, Mepps, Dardevle and Chautauqua. We anticipate we will have even more in the future as our family business grows.
Do you have a catalog? No. As our inventory changes daily we do not offer a catalog. All of our inventory for sale is here on our store at mybaitshop.com
Are all of these lures new? No. All of these lures for sale we found somewhere. It could have been a garage sale, auction, online, old tackle boxes etc. While all of these lures are used, some are what we call "new old stock". These lures are older but have never been used and may come in their original packaging. UPDATE: we have begun stocking some newer lures such as Bagley, Bill Lewis, Mepps, Dardevle and Chautauqua. We note that on the product page.
How many of each lure do you have? Most of the items for sale on this page are just a single item. There are times however when we come across a supply of older lures that are identical old stock and will offer more than one for sale. As our inventory is sold it is marked as such or removed from the site.
How can you sell some of these lures cheaper than the big box stores? This is easy. We are not a big box retailer. We go out and find these old lures in large volumes and buy for our collection. What we don't collect, we sell. This allows our price points to be much lower. We are also a family run business. We work as a family to find, list, and ship your lures direct to you.
How often is new stock added? Almost daily. We have a huge supply of lures and tackle to add.
How big is your inventory? I would guess around 25,000 lures at any given time. If you are looking for something you don't see for sale, email us and ask.
What is a "Warrior"? The term Warrior is used to describe an old lure that has been through the battles. These are lures that show wear and marks from fish and general use. While not the prettiest to look at these lures can be added to a retro display or better yet take them fishing. After all they got this way for a reason... they catch fish!
Do you sell on Ebay? Yes, we have sold on Ebay since 1998 off and on. Our seller ID is mybaitshop.
What is the NFLCC? This is the National Fishing Lures Collectors Club. We are a member. If you are new to collecting old lures, check them out and join. A link can be found in our Resources section.
Can I use the photos / pictures on your website? You may use the photos on our website for non-commercial use. We do ask that you give us credit (My Bait Shop, LLC) and provide a link back to our homepage www.mybaitshop.com where possible. If it is for commercial use, please contact us for possible arrangements.
