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.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
