Our bait shop in Grand Rapids (Oh) is for sale and we've moved our rental operation across the street to our warehouse at 24287 Front St. (across from the Town Hall). We'll be renting kayaks from Grand Rapids when the water temperature gets above fifty degrees. Farnsworth and Middlegrounds metropark rentals will open for Memorial day weekend (4-25-18) and continue all summer until Labor Day. It's been a pleasure to rent kayaks at our beautiful metroparks and we've received a lot of great comments!
