Our History

Todd Heitkamp tells us a bit about himself, why he opened Dakota Angler and what makes it special.

The store was opened in May 2001 with the goal of having a business that my enitre family could participate in it's growth.  We are proud to call ourselves a "Mom & Pop" shop because we want people to feel welcome to come in and have a cup of coffee and share some of their fish stories.  This recipe has worked quite well through the years.  Dakota Angler is now known has a premier bait & tackle store in the upper Midwest.  It is best known for the high quality of bait, as well as the host of the "Dakota Angler Ice institute".  The Ice Institute is a two-day ice fishing event held in November where people come from all around to hear seminars presented by the nation's best ice fishermen.  Each year people look forward to attending the Institute. 

One of the main things we consistently strive for is our customer service to be second to none!  Plus, we use the equipment that we sell so we're the experts that you can count on to answer your fishing questions and ensure your next fishing trip is not only enjoyable, but successful!

In December of 2014, we moved to our new location at 1120 East Benson Road (Cliff & Benson intersection) that has allowed us to expand our selection to meet growing customer demands!  Stop by our new location and say hello and be welcomed into the "Dakota Angler Family"!
