If you need bait after hours, Reel fishing has bait in there entry way. It is not free, please leave the opperate amount, a little extra for convenice would be nice.

I've been wondering if they still do that. There are days where I'd like to be out on the ice before the sun comes up, but need bait.

What sort of bait is available in the entry way? Waxies? Spikes? Crappie Minnows?

We keep crappie and fathead minnows in our entryway. Most of the time, it's too cold for waxies.

I am just posting to say thanks to Joe at the bait shop in Madison Lake, we caught and released about 20 crappies in the 5 hours we were out, your bait and tackle tips worked awesome and you were right on! Class act Joe and I have already given out 2 of your business cards to people I met at Mankato about your fish and tackle operation, we will see you in the spring after walleye opens back up and I am saving up for the camo ice armour suit. Again thanks was great to meet and talk to you!!

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
