Cricket has the goods that will not only lure fish but shoppers too. Cricket’s Bait Shop has been attracting travelers to Krotz Springs, Louisiana since 2004 with its unique signs and artwork, giving visitors a sense of authenticity. The shop’s owner, Cricket, has a talent for acquiring eclectic and even folk-artsy items of all sorts. It’s definitely worth the time to wander among the many treasures she has on hand. Cricket has also managed to care for a 100 plus year-old, loggerhead turtle, weighing over 100 pounds. The turtle was saved from being killed for its shell. You can stop in at the bait shop to see this natural wonder.
