A family-owned business since 1946, Frankie’s Live Bait and Marine started out of a Chisago Hardware store. The current owners sold live bait to local anglers as young children. They loved trapping bait and eventually earned enough money to buy a few boats with hopes of selling them to local anglers.

Today, Frankie’s Live Bait and Marine is the world’s largest Ranger Boat Dealer and a Minnesota Fishing Hall of Fame Inductee. The owner grows his own supply of golden shiners and suckers! Make sure to stop in to see the boats and buy some bait to hook a big one!
