The Cabin Bait, Tackle and Deli
215 Vista Drive
Kuttawa, Kentucky

The Cabin Bait & Tackle and Deli is under new ownership by Tom and Melissa Sandefur. Tom would like to welcome all to drop by for all your fishing needs. Also, swing over to the deli side for some great food.

The Sandefurs bought The Cabin from Ronnie and Diane Critcheloe, who had owned it for 11 years and have decided it is time to start another chapter in life (semi retirement). Tom and Melissa want to say thank you to the Critcheloes for making this business a great success. The cabin is known by many as one of the best bait shops on Kentucky and Barkley lakes.

Tom has some great ideas for the future of both The Cabin and the Deli. Tom says he would like to expand The Deli into its own building. And with that comes some different foods being introduced by their good cook Rose Fraliex, manager of The Deli. All are excited to see what the future brings.

Tom is carrying on the dream of his late grandfather Jim Fleming who in the 70′s was the president of the Kentucky Bass Federation out of Owensboro Kentucky, when the bass fishing was just getting started. Tom wants to thank his grandfather, father (Tom Sandefur) and mother (Jane Bruner) for helping give him the chance to do what he loves to do, “fish”.

The Cabin Bait & Tackle is having their open house May 9th, 2015 from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. They are calling this their “meet, greet and eat”. Free hamburgers and hot dogs from 12:00 noon to 2:00 P.M., with lots of great deals and give away drawings.

Come start their new journey with them.
