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.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
