Meet Chase Fletcher


I’m Chase Fletcher – I grew up here in Beaver Dam and when I decided to start my  business, I knew this is where I wanted it to be. This is where everything began.

A Labor of Love


Fishing and carpentry have long been two of my passions, so opening my bait and tackle shop where I’ve been able to do much of the carpentry has been amazing.

What’s in a name


James E. Bait & Tackle is named for my grandfather, James E. Fletcher. An avid outdoorsman and a kind, generous and patient soul, he introduced me to the water and the woods and taught me to appreciate and preserve its treasures. Rest in peace, Grandpa Jim. And thank you.
