Blue Ribbon in Oakdale usually has them. Might want to call and check first.

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.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
