Can't think of the resort name but the outfit that runs out of St. Albans bay near Seguchie point sold me some shrimp last winter. Never got a bite on 'em but it was a new bait for me and I'm sure I wans't using them properly.

Are the shrimp that the perch are biting on really shrimp or mayfly larvae. I've seen perch cough these up before and suspected they maybe mayflies

Give Tutts a call....for some reason I thought I may have seen them there in one of the coolers in the back. Maybe it was just different size lava.....but worth a call if thats what your looking for.

Here you go. Freshwater Shrimp. They have a picture on the page. If you google it, you can find other information. Fly fishermen use similar baits, artificial/tied, not live.

      Big Watab lake "St Cloud area" between Cold Spring and St Joseph. Couple smaller bodies of water in the area as well.... Mn DNR lakefinder is helpfull. Couple small steams in this area too.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
