Stopped in this weekend at the Bait Den and this was the freshest and biggest fatheads I have seen in the area in a long time.

Looks like I found a new place to purchase my bait

Good luck to you guys and ill be back for sure.

I just left the Bait Den. Got a half dozen of the best lookin shiners I have seen in a long time. Also got a half scoop of fatheads for which I also recieved 6. Yeah they're nice minnows but 6 fatties in a half scoop? C'mon man. I'll give them one more shot but if they're gonna be stingy on the counts...forget it. There are alot of choices, in the area I fish in, for bait with alot better counts for my money. Almost $8 for 12 minnows! They better catch fish! You'd think that a new business would be dang near giving them away to get more repeat customers. Like I said, one more chance.

Ive said it once ill say it again go to scheels. $5 for a dozen shinners and trust me youll get a lot more then a dozen, 1.50 for a scoop of fatheads and these things are HUGE, i went to that new bait shop and my scoop of fatheads look like crappie minnows, sorry. Scheels is where its at if you dont mind goin to the mall.

I agree with the Scheels bait. I have never gotten fat heads that big in my life, scoop and a half for $1.50. Only problem I don't know if the heads will fit on my hook. Also a dozen shiners cost only $5.

I HATE THE MALL! But if you guys say they're that good I'll go to Scheel's. I live close to the mall so it's not that far out of my way, I just really can't stand going there. I can handle a quick in and out....I think. Scheel's it is!

We bought some crappie minnows from the bait den last week. immediately after, we went to the tackle box and more bait shop and bought a scoop of crappie minnows from them. Reason being, the crappie minows at the bait den were absolutely huge. They looked like chubbs!! The tackle box and more bait shop had really nice little ones that seemed to work for us when we went out! I really dont think the guy owning the bait den is nearly as personable as the guy that runs the tackle box and more bait shop. I'll stick with the tackle box and more!

This just goes to show how foolish you are when you buy bait.

You don't know one from the other. Any (Contact Us Please) knows what a chubb is and a crappie minnow.I don't think any shop in town would sell crappie minnows that big.And I have bought crappie minnows there and they were fine for me.And lively at that.So you can go where you need to go But Im stickin with the bait den.

only thing that sucks about going the scheels route is that it's the holidays and every salesperson is trying to sell gear and it can be tough to flag someone down to get the minners. but worth it!!!

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
