IN THE FINAL WEEK OF JUNE, JAMES GANG FISHING COMPANY CEO & FOUNDER ALEX HAS INVESTED IN AND ACTIVATED THE HOLCOMBE AREA'S FIRST 24/7 BAIT & TACKLE VENDING MACHINE. THIS MACHINE IS STOCKED WITH LEECHES, NIGHTCRAWLERS, MINNOWS, WAXIES, LEAF WORMS, AS WELL AS TACKLE & SUPPLIES FOR THE ANGLER ON THE GO!
OTHER TACKLE & SUPPLIES AVAILABLE NOW!
Besides hooks, slip bobbers, sinkers, and other terminal tackle, Alex also included some much needed items for the river anglers, boaters, and even drivers with trailer issues. The machine is stocked with 1" wheel bearing kits as well as marine-grade grease for the unfortunate trailer breakdown. Remember this is 24/7 service, so if you are within a reasonable distance of Holcombe, WI at any time, this is available to you. Sunglasses, bug spray, river sinkers, flashlights, glow lights, JB's Fish Sauce, carp boilies, catfish bait nuggets, James Gang Fishing hand-crafted lures, and fishing line are all available at your convenience in this great location on Hwy 27 at the Big Minnow Bar & Grill. The available items will be seasonal, as sporting goods relating to the hunters and ice fisherman will replace the summer angling items in the fall through winter months.
MINNOWS IN A BAG? HOW DOES IT WORK??
We are sure anglers are hesitant when hearing that minnows can be purchased without aeration in a minnow vending machine. Believe us, WE WERE TOO! But after talking to actual vending machine owners instead of sales pitches, we found that this system of minnow sales is successful and works very well. The key is to use the correct packaging, use top quality bait, treat the water correctly, and sell them in small quantities to preserve the oxygen. In this refrigerated machine, the amount of oxygen needed is reduced, and will give the lively minnows 7+ days of life in the vending machine. We are labeling a "SELL BY" date on all of our minnow vends so that the angler will know that the minnows are still alive. In the case of any spoiled live bait of any kind, James Gang Fishing Company will definitely work with the customer to give them a FULL REFUND if they clearly were sold spoiled bait. We will be checking our stock frequently as we refill our inventory, and we will make sure to inspect our live bait during each visit.
WHERE IS THE MACHINE'S PHYSICAL ADDRESS??
BIG MINNOW BAR & GRILL is open 6 days a week, Tues-Sunday from 10 AM to Bar Close. They have fantastic food at affordable prices and a large variety on their menu. Their staff is very friendly and the local crowd is a very fun one that is mainly composed of anglers and people visiting the lake, their cabins, or their nearby campers. Big Minnow has been legendary in the area for decades, and the owners that took over a few years ago have done a fantastic job keeping the place performing at a high-level after the original owners had retired. Stop in for a burger, ask the locals about the fishing reports, and fill your boat up with gas across the street.
PAYMENT METHODS ACCEPTED IN VENDING MACHINE
JAMES GANG FISHING's 24 hr vending will accept cash up to $20 bills, and a credit card reader will be enabled around or before the July 4th holiday weekend.
