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!!!

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
