MuskyBug,

Do you still work at Northern Bait in Park Rapids?

If so, do you have big (8 inch and larger) creek chubs on hand? How about red worms?

Will be coming up for vacation in a month and wanted to know the bait situation.

Thanks for any help.

the creek chub question is tricky, the last run we got had some absolute monsters in it, however before that they were pretty small. it is hit or miss for the most part but if you need them and give me the dates you will be around i might be able to talk dave into traping some of his brood stock for you. and we don't carry the red worms, i believe delaneys still does and markets them under the "trout worm" label.

Dad and my brother will be coming up July 30, I will be up on August 4th.

Dad will be there until the end of August, I'll be there for two weeks.

If you could have 3 to 4 dozen creek large creek chubs by July 30, that would be great. 8 inches or larger, also any monsters.

We probably will need more later on depending on how fast we use them.

I'll try to stay in touch between now and then to see if you have any luck finding them.

Thanks a lot for your help!

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]

      Yes, they are all done at the hatchery. Finished up two weeks ago this Saturday (4/15). Just waiting for eggs to ripen and hatch to go back out to area water bodies.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.
