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!!!

      I think it will be alright but i would be lying if i said i wasnt thinking what to do myself.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
