Welcome to Captain Norm's Bait and Tackle Shop!

Situated by the beautiful Missouri River in Southeastern South Dakota, Captain Norm's Bait Shop is your gateway to a spectacular outdoor adventure at Lewis & Clark Lake, the premier spot on the Missouri River Reservoir System. This picturesque lake, renowned for its diverse and abundant fish species, is a paradise for anglers. Whether you're after Walleyes, Sauger, Smallmouth or Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, White Bass, Crappies, or Catfish, Lewis & Clark Lake is the place to be.

But that's not all! Nestled adjacent to South Dakota's largest state park, Lewis & Clark State Park, the area boasts nearly 400 campsites, offering a perfect blend of tranquility and adventure. With the tailwaters of Gavin's Point Dam close by, you're in for some of the best fishing experiences in the Midwest. The dam area is particularly exciting during October for snagging Spoonbill/Paddlefish and in June for bowfishing enthusiasts.
