Bought some Rainbows and Shiners from Jimmy's in Stillwater Sunday. He had a good supply of both then. I don't think he had redtails though.

Joe's doesn't sell shiners or chubs...just crappie minnows (3 different sizes), fatheads, and sucker minnows (3 different sizes).

I just picked some up yesterday from Northwoods Archery & Sport in Newport (right off hgwy 61 on your way to Prescott). It's a new shop that just opened last fall. Good bait too!

joes had a tank full of shiners i saw while i was buying some LURES . looked nice and healthy too.(rare). if it was me? i'd just get a dipnet and catch some shad ar emeralds and fish away. even a dead shad( not rotten if you want Waldo) is better than anything you can buy. good luck.

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com
