I don't know of any bait shops open in the S.W. p[art of town. However if you drive over to Sprinl Lake Park just north of Fridley Vados Bait Shop ought to be open. I don't fish the lakes out your way much anymore so I am not sure what might or might not be open. There ought to be one or too open around Lake Minnetonka. Or maybe down toward Prior Lake, maybe. I would guess. Maybe someone else can give you a better idea.

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
