Hello Mr. John,
"Received my order on frozen dace last night,, as you stated, this time of year may not be frozen,, well the whole package was still in great shape! Not totally thawed, but still not frozen solid. I am very impressed! Straight to the freezer, and I'm sure they will be just fine! Product was astronomical!! Thanks for great bait and emails keeping me posted on shipping!"

Thank you. Merry Christmas."

Hey Jon,"I’m sorry you didn’t hear back from me Friday. We ran into a family emergency. I sent the package back on Friday the 20th and it was returned back to us because of a post office mistake. We have kept it in the freezer to keep it frozen. As soon as the post office opens back up we will return the package again. I will attach the invoice that was in the package in this email."

"Once again John I have to say for my second year ordering bait from your company it’s been an excellent and unscathed experience. I’m very impressed with the frozen sucker chubs and to ship 2000 miles in 3 days is awesome. I said it last year and I’ll say it again but your customer service and variety of products I personally think are remarkable. Not many companies I can honestly say I trust to do business with these days but I’ve spoken to you on the phone in the past and you bring back that customer service most companies don’t have anymore. (Honesty, integrity and personality) I thank you for that. I took your advice from last year and ordered early and the selection of bait was flawless this time of year.
Whoever packages the bait for long trips you should buy them lunch. They were packaged so good it was impressive. They did a great job!!
You got good people there keep them.
"Received the shipment I ordered. Looks just as advertised.....
Will do business again."
