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.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
