March 20th COVID-19 Public Release Statement


The leadership of Bud’s Bait in Joplin and Carthage believes that with the pandemic of COVID-19, fishing is amongst the best activities that individuals can partake in to exercise public social distancing and still enjoy life free of the worries of the day to day routine.  We also believe that the health and safety of our employees and our customers is our top priority. As such, we will do everything we can to continue to serve our fishing community AND do our part in helping slow the spread of the virus. 

Friday, March 20th Governor Parsons issued a decree limiting gatherings to less than 10 individuals. As a result of the escalating COVID-19 pandemic, and to do our part in helping to slow the spread of the virus, we are immediately implementing a restriction in access to our stores to no more than 6 customers in the store at a time. When a customer comes to the store they will be directed to check with the store clerk and may be asked to wait outside, in their car,  until the capacity of the store becomes appropriate to allow another customer inside. We have implemented regular sanitizing of surfaces and ask that all customers sanitize or wash their hands as they enter the store.

We have also posted a catalog on the front page of our website,  The catalog represents all of the inventory that we stock in our stores as of February 1, 2020.  You can call during normal business hours and place an order over the phone or through our website.  We offer FREE shipping on all orders over $50, with the exception of fishing rods, combos, buckets, liquids, and lead.

Thank you for patience and understanding as we work together to protect one another.  


We stock a variety of tackle and fishing supplies; from top brands in the fishing industry for tournament bass fisherman, to live bait for the weekend farm-pond warrior, and everything in between.  

Our bass baits include top brands such as Z-Man, Culprit, Googan Baits, Gene Larew, and many others.  We have an extensive selection of crappie baits that include, Bobby Garland, Mr. Crappie, Fle Fly, and several additional premiere brands.
