Bluewater bait on the south end of town is a great shop with good selection. Or Tabers bait is always friendly and willing to give advice on lakes and bait.

We have some good shops and great people that work in them all... Bluewater, Tabers, & Gander are the ones I visit...

Hope this helps...

Talk to Keith at Gander. He'll put you on the fish. I never forget to stop and talk with keith when I am upnorth and he always puts me on the fish.

We've had a family lake home near Bemidji for 25 years. Like Beef said, all three of those places offer great bait, and you won't go wrong with any of them. The key to a bait store (good bait is only the first important thing) is reliable fishing info, and over the years I've gotten good tips from all three places.

Also Tabers has emerald shiners which the other two dont and i dont know if any other places around carry them but we have had better luck with those than some other baits.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
