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.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      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!
