Hi ya PAC!
Bob's Bait & Tackle
4863 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19129
(215) 487-0887

They're located right by the Wissahickon Transfer Station. Also right by the Schuylkill River and Wissahickon creek.
I've been going to this shop ever since I was about 10 years old. They're not the biggest shop by far but they usually have in stock all the basics and the classic gear you might need. The main guy who runs the place is a older guy named Doug, he's my Yoda 😃 for fishing. He's friendly and packed full of knowledge, the guys been fishing the Tri-state area for longer than I've been alive! He's a great resource to have as an angler.
Check them out and keep an old mom and pop bait and tackle store running!
The only bad part is that they're only open from late February to the end of November-December depending.

Any days a good day for fishing! Tight lines,

Illadelphia

Haven't been to Bob's in awhile, but always enjoyed the pleasant conversation and service when I visited.

Yea all of them got lucky there. Too bad though because a couple of homes in that row have become abandoned...

UPDATE:

Talked to Doug from Bobs Bait and member FishOn.
The shop is currently opening Monday through Friday 10 A.M. - 2 P.M.
Doug hasn't received a straight answer yet about weekend hours.
As of 3/18 they didn't have any live bait but anticipate a shipment weeks end.
They will be opening much earlier and later as we get closer to the trout opening
