Welcome to…

Johnston Bait & Tackle

The 515’s Bait House

… a wholly different experience.

We aren’t your big box store with drone workers, un-knowledgeable service, old bait,
or random products picked out by the industry.

We aren’t your small local shop with limited selection, limited baits, and high prices.

We are Johnston Bait & Tackle, the perfect mix of Local Bait Shop with big selection.

We have the Products that work right here in Iowa, and access to Special Order almost anything you want.

We have Personal Knowledge of the Waters surrounding Des Moines, and across the State.

We go the extra mile to put the best equipment and bait in your hands.

We are Johnston Bait & Tackle.

With a wide selection of Reels, Rods, Accessory Goods, and Premium Baits

We strive to make your fishing trip the best one until the next one.
