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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
