Eagan Bait

5 posts in this topic

As I was leaving the hardware store across from Walmart and next to Von Hansen, I noticed that they advertised bait. It said minnows, crawlers, leaches and wax worms. I would call 1st because of the time of year, but if they offer good stuff, this would be awesome.

Has anyone bought bait here? Any reports?

Nope, but that's only a bit from my house. I'll try it out next time I need live bait. Thanks for pointing it out! It'll be really convenient if they stock live bait year round, especially when ice time arrives!

Well, I didn't know there was a place in Eagan that actually sold bait. That place is about half a mile from where I'm at.

I stopped by over the weekend to check it out. They have worms, leeches, nighcrawlers and crappie minnows. Two small refrigerators that hold everything. The minnows and leeches are in a bag, both are very small.

I stopped in this weekend & bought two containers of nightcrawlers. The first was great, the second one about half were dead & they'd pull apart when I stuck them on the hook. Not that my daughter or the sunnies cared. tongue.gif

The minnows looked lively. I use live bait a lot more in the winter, so I'll take another look then, but it's nice to have an option close to home.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
