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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
