Bait shops in area

6 posts in this topic

I have been using the Hardware store in St. Michael for bait, but I am curious what other bait shops are around and in what cities.

Thanks

The hardware store in Rockford sells bait. I think it is Ace hardware but I am not sure. It is just west of Sarah Lake on the south side of 55

FYI: just to add to the list the Hardware Hank's in Big Lake also has a selection of bait. I figure the more we prop up the retailer's bait business the more we encourage them to continue carrying the product- and bait retailers are far too rare these days it seems.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL
