Smokey's Bait Shop

Welcome to our 30th year of serving the fishing community of Pewaukee Wisconsin and the surrounding area. We, John, Loie, and our new dog lucy, we’d like to thank you for visiting our little corner of the Internet. We are excited about the future and look forward to meeting new customers via this website.


A lot of things have happened over 30 years. With the help of our parents, Loie and I started this business and through illness and good health, the raising of children and financial woes both good and bad, Smokey’s has always been a Pewaukee mainstay for those who like to stop by and catch up on the latest news of where the fish are biting, what bait is working the best and who’s in the doghouse with their wife over the last fishing trip. We pride ourselves in providing what you want, when you want it and at a price you can afford. We love fishing and love our customers even more.


We have two locations .  Our downtown location offers pontoon rentals, 14' aluminum boats with Yamaha motors, canoe and kayaks,  boat and pontoon trailers for you to take a boat to a different lake.  You can launch at this location and gas your boat up.  We have night crawlers, minnows, redworms, wax worms, leeches and licences so you can actually go fishing.  We also have fishing rods and reels.  We offer competitive prices and hope to provide fishing experiences or your entire family.


Reserve a pontoon now online or call us at 262-691-0360.  We also have bait, boats and motors, canoe, kayaks, gas on the lake, and have the famous Smokey Musky Shop 2 miles down the road.


Come take a summer retreat on Pewauee Lake.
