Frankie’s Live Bait and Marine, a family-owned business since 1946, began in a small section of Chisago Hardware. Frank Dusenka Sr. transformed it into a beloved bait shop in 1968, with his sons Frankie and Brad selling live bait to local anglers. Their dedication turned the shop into the Midwest’s largest Ranger Boat Dealer and a Minnesota Fishing Hall of Fame Inductee. The story underscores the importance of hard work and commitment to quality. Now, they’re excited to expand their legacy with an upcoming eCommerce addition, making their trusted products more accessible than ever.
