Bait Shops?

7 posts in this topic

.

Hello All:

Getting really excited to make another trip to Voyageurs. Pretty sure we will be landing from Crane Lake Ranger Station. Will we pass right by Andersons outfitters on the way there? Looking for the best place to buy bait, etc. We stopped in Orr last year and I was wondering if Andersons would be another good choice?

If we happen to land from the Kabetogama Visitors Center where would be a good stop for bait on the way there?

Thanks Everyone,

-Voyageur

I think the Gateway store is your best bet if you end up using the Kab landing. It's the store accross the street from the walleye statue.

Are you campin on Namakan again?

Hey Farley!

Ok yeah, I remember the Gateway store from a couple a years back - is that right before you turn off 53?

Yeah, we're gonna be on Namakan again. Can anyone tell me where Anderson's is and if its a good bait shop - vs - the shop in Orr?

Thanks.

Anderson's is on your left, just before getting into Crane Lake, you can't miss it. Maybe a mile or two from Ranger Station? We stay in a cabin across the channel from the Ranger Station and Anderson's is where we get all of our bait. Nice people there.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the shop in Orr and the one on the way to Crane both Anderson's? I thought they owned both spots.

Anderson's in ORR and Anderson's in Crane Lake are two different families. Anderson's in Crane Lake is always stocked with what you need for the area and offer good information on the bite.

If you get up near the Ash River trail, there is a place called "Cold Spring". It is about a 1/4 mile before the Ash River Trail turn off. Owner is the bait wholesaler for the area and the bait is as fresh as it gets.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
