Bait needs??

11 posts in this topic

Heading upto Appledorns this Friday-Sunday and wondering where we can get some bait? What seems to work best for tipups or rattle reels at night, in case Walldoe wants a change of pace on the last weekend?? Thanks in advance Tracey

Look for the big muskie on the east side of the road. You can't miss it.

Prince Bait in Milaca. 3 miles North of Milaca on HWY 169. For your rattle reels at night put on a shiner with a red hook. If you can't find shiners just use a fathead.

Princes had some shiners left but they went very big. i had to have tony do some digging to get me a couple dozen 3-5". They are what we got all our walleyes on this weekend. We got some really nice fish.

Start checking early because most people in this area are out of shiners.

I would also plan on bringing up your own Euro larvae if you plan on using them for the perch. Seems the farther north ones goes the harder they are to find. Plenty of shops have the waxies but not the smaller version.

Thanks for help on the bait needs. We learned two things this weekend the guy at Lundeens dosn't have to worry about ever selling us bait again. On the otherhand Johnson's gets big credit for being very sociable and willing to help 4 guys who haven't fished the lake very much. Just wish we would have bought all our bait there. I will drive out of my way to buy bait there again............Tracey..

P.S.- The fishing was beyond bad but the weather was nice and it wasn't from lack of effort......

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
