metro area bait shops

5 posts in this topic

a while back, (maybe 2 years?) there was a post about metro area bait shops. Now that we have the new forum, could we have a sticky post on the top that lists all the metro bait shops? this would be handy I think. Maybe something to do for all the local areas.

Leahman's Toro service in Anoka on Coon Rapids Blvd is a pretty decent place, no great selection but it's fair if your just looking for standard stuff ie, crappie, fats or suckers. During the summer runs a great "on your honor" service. Also runs a pretty good small engine shop, have gotten my auger serviced there a couple times over the years.

thanks for the responses guys, but I wasn't intending this to be a post for everyone to reply to with a shop. What I was hoping for was a sticky post with a growing list as the first post showing all the area bait shops. Maybe broken out by north, south, east and west metro.

If we need a post were people can go to enter all their fav bait locations... then by all means list them here. Then maybe this thread can be compiled into just the one sticky that will stay at the top with the list.

my 2 cents, hastings outdoors @ hastingsoutdoors dot com

right on hwy 61 just across the bridge going south. they are in a new location now on the east side of the road.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
