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.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
