Few stores in the area consistently stock multiple types of live bait. With our large assortment, we’ve made it easy for you to get the right bait when you go fishing in Grand Rapids, MI. It doesn’t matter what species you want to fish for or what season you want to fish in—Al & Bob’s Sports has the type of bait you need. Our selection includes:

  • Leeches
  • Mousies (when available) Night crawlers
  • Red worms and wax worms
  • Preserved salmon spawn and wigglers
  • Small & large shiners
  • Spikes
  • Suckers

We also offer artificial bait. Artificial bait has different advantages and disadvantages than live bait. You don’t have to work to keep it lively while you wait to take it fishing; however, since it doesn’t move on its own, you will have to use techniques to make it attractive to different fish species. Choose the type of bait that best suits your preferences and skill level. Our selection of artificial bait includes crank, jerk, spinner, and swim baits; jigs; soft plastic; and top water.


We carry a variety of nets and electronics, including several Humminbird models. We also carry all the accessories you’d need for challenging adventures like ice fishing.
