Swanson's has been the local bait shop in Hackensack for generations. Originally known as Cline's Minnows. With its distinctively painted rocks on the front of the building. Cline's was the place to stop for all of your bait.
Cline's was purchased by Ed and Marcia Swanson in late 1970. Ed and Marcia continued the tradition, and the business flourished. In 1995, Ed and Marcia sold the business to Jim and Lisa Tuller. In 2017, Jim and Lisa sold the business to Dean and Chris Garoutte. Dean and Chris, and their two boys, look forward to keeping Swanson's the long time traditional stop for many.
