Red Tail Minnows?

17 posts in this topic

I called around to 2 bait shops on the south end, one on the way up 169 and one bigger one on the southeast corner.

NO ONE carries Red Tail Minnows.

Last week i got some from Sportland Bait in Brainerd, but that is a long drive to come back to mille lacs and fish.

Where do you guys get them? any spots on the way up 169 or maybe in the metro?

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I would try Vadeo's in Spring lake park. They are hwy 65!

That or get some good sized chub or fat heads!

Did you try calling Lundeen's or Johnson's Portside. What about Pat's (I think) in Isle??

I have also heard some good things about Pike minnows this time of year (small suckers)!

Post side would not have them! But lundeens might, but most likley not!

If you don't mind the extra drive, pick some up in Brainerd. Also you could try some bigger rainbows. Smaller 4-5" suckers may work. What about river chubs.

i think it was only 6.00 for the small per doz, 7.00 for med and 8.00 /doz for the large.

Not too much more than shiners or suckers? now 10.00 is way outrageous.

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.

      hurry up ice!

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.
