Live bait in Chatfield

11 posts in this topic

I will be fishing in Chatfield in a couple weeks and I need to know where I can get some worms and minnows.

Yea, we will be selling worms and minnows in a week or two. Will have flyers all around Chatfield by this weekend or so. We will have high quality worms. Hopefully the minnow sale wont make the minnows run out but i doubt that because we will have plenty of minnows. The flyers will say where were and I can tell you where we are later. It is a new bait store so its not on the one your thinking of too. Good Luck

I live about 8 miles outside of Chatfield. Nightcrawlers no problem, as of right now there is nobody that sells minnows in Chatfield. I hope somebody starts but if you want minnows to fish with???

I'm assuming that the minnows will be used on non-designated trout waters as the rules specifically prohibit using live minnows on designated trout streams (see page 27).

I was wondering the same thing...

If you use minnows in designated trout water, they must be dead.

Only frozen, dried, or pickled (brined) are allowed. You can't just let 'em die in the water bucket and hook them on.

yea, I know but thats at trout streams. I wasnt talking about trout streams but I never knew that you cant use minnows in the root river.

Actually unless it changed this year, you can use minnows on SE MN trout streams unless they have a no live bait rule.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
