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.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
