Where is the best bait and tackle store for braidwood and heidecke. Is there a boat rental for those 2 lakes? Thanks, cause I fish shabbona the most and just wondered if those lakes had a similar bait and boat rental shop.

Pretty sure the boat rental at Heidecke is no more. Never had any at Braidwood.

Angelo's in Wilmington is the best shop for both. A few other roadside ones around Braidwood you will see as you head to the south launch. Heaven's Bait on Lorenzo near the tracks closed and Greybeards tore down the trailer so no more boat rentals. I know a family sunk one out there in rough weather, don't know if that had anything to do with it or not, probably just slow business once the shad hatch.

Greybeards had a stroke and his family did not wish to continue with the bait shop and boat rentals even though he still had 2 seasons on his contract with the state. Its a shame about Heavens too real nice folks but I understand it was also health reasons- before Heavens was in the front -the out building in the back was the bait shop-nothing better than at 5 am getting bait and daisy duke's behind the counter!!!!

There is no boat rental at either. Angelos are good people.
