Bait!!!

5 posts in this topic

I'm heading down from cities to fish shields or french lake tomorrow with a buddy for first time ever, I will be coming down 35 to cty 21 and was wondering where the best or closest place would be to stop and get bait. And if anyone knows what time they might open in the morning.

Thanks in advance

Option 1 -

Naegles.

Take 21 south into town, take a right at the stop light - cloud 9 bar and Burger King.

Naegels is down about 1/2 a mile on your right, across from a chainsaw store.

I do not know what time he opens.

Option 2 -

Take 21 north towards the lakes, the one-stop gas station sells bait. Its on your way to Shields and across the street from Mazaska.

*Side note on the 1 stop - I was in there a few days ago getting Milk, and they were out of shiners. I do not know if they have them in yet.

I have heard that there is a huge shortage on shinners..so may be tough to get them anywhere!

I believe there are "import" restrictions on bringing them in to the state due to VHS or Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia which is a highly infectious viral fish disease.

Arkansas is a large supplier of shiners with all the fish farms down there. This VHS is being noticed as spreading rather wild from what I hear. You might see supplies or availability very limited by spring.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
