Storyline

Paradise Lake, near Kissimmee, Florida, is hosting a Professional Bass Association contest. Local bait-shop owner and former amateur champ, Bill Dugan, is in deep trouble: the bank wants $15,000 for the shop's mortgage, he doesn't tell his wife who's angry when she finds out, and his wealthy blow-hard father-in-law wants Bill to work for him. The tournament favorite is Hot Rod Johnson, a crowd-pleaser and ESPN darling who'll do anything to win. Bill's son Scott thinks Hot Rod is cool, Hot Rod opens a huge store close to Bill's, his ne'er-do-well pals are ready to desert him, and Bill may lose it all. His one hope is to enter the contest and win the prize. Time to fish or cut bait. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Best movie I've ever seen about a bait shop..........
17 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Obviously a labor of love, this family movie will appeal to a very limited audience. Definitely not a chick flick, unless your girlfriend or spouse is into fishing. I suppose fishermen, and anybody who tolerates goofy characters doing stupid things, might find it bearable. The actors are definitely limited by the overly simplistic script. Richard Riehle, and Harve Presnell are welcome additions to the supporting cast. In fact, Harve Presnell's character is not unlike the abrasive Fatherinlaw he played to perfection in "Fargo". "Bait Shop" is an effective time waster, if you happen to be in the mood for mindless entertainment. - MERK
