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!!

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
