AUBURN — It’s one of the few bait and tackle shops around, and it’s for sale. Dag’s Bait & Tackle at 559 Minot Ave. has been a fixture for local anglers for years and remains a busy store.

Dylan Larose and his father bought Dag’s in 2009, shortly after he was discharged from the U.S. Air Force, where he was a machinist. His father has retired and lives in Florida, and Larose said he just wants to punch a clock and let someone else pay him to work.

He said he’s interested in the life sciences field and may go back to work for the government.

The building is for sale, as is the three-bedroom apartment above it, and the stream and dam behind the building and an older building that used to house a grist mill. It’s listed for $425,000.
