Captain Norm's
Where our bait will catch fish or Die Tryn'

Captain Norm's Bait Shop is nestled near the scenic Missouri River in Southeastern South Dakota and is located at the entrance to Lewis & Clark Lake which is the first reservoir on the Missouri River Reservoir System. Lewis & Clark Lake has abundant numbers of Walleyes, Sauger, Smallmouth bass, Largemouth bass, Northern pike, White bass, Crappies and Catfish to the Lewis & Clark State Park South Dakota's largest state park with nearly 400 campsites. We are also located on the tail waters of Gavin's Point Dam which offers great fishing for a wide species of game fish and offers snagging for Spoonsbill/Paddelfish during the month of October and archery in June. This area of the Missouri River offers some of the best fishing in the Midwest and offers a variety of family fun and recreation for your next vacation. Lewis & Clark Lake offers many outdoor activities like fishing, swimming, boating, sailing, biking and hiking.

We offer South Dakota and Nebraska resident and non-resident fishing and hunting licenses and annual park permits.
