Rent a boat and get all the right gear to have a great day of fishing on Lake Shabbona

The staff of Lakeside Bait Shop, Boat Rental and Tackle are courteous, friendly and willing to help you get the best of your trip to Shabbona Lake. Since 1998, this has been a family operated business. On any given day you can find a Sands family member in the shop ready to assist you. Let’s start with Denny who as many of you know as the “expert” of Shabbona Lake. Denny has been highly involved in the Park and Lake since its beginning. You won’t find anyone who understands how to fish Shabbona Lake better than Denny. Denny’s son, Clint, and daughter-in-law Heather have taken over the day to day operations of the business. Clint and Heather literally grew up on Shabbona Lake and are a wealth of knowledge like Denny.
