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.

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.

      This year I will be able to leave Finn at home, so I can fish. @Cret Jigs @Shack Anyone I missed come and join the fun. Let's get this set so we have time draw a crowd!
