There is one on your right just before you turn left off of 61 I think thats the road. Its a gas station and its white thats the only one that I can explain how to get to and its right on the the way.

That baitshop that bassman is talking about is a great place to get bait. You ask for a dozen and they give you at least a dozen and a half. Plus its only one of 2 bait shops, in the metro area that I know of, that carry red tail chubs on a regular basis.

Correct...that is a great bait shop. It is a Marathon gas station I believe and is located right off 61 like the prior post said.

I can't confirm they have them now, but Blue Ribbon Bait in Oakdale had Redtail's in October. The owner told me as long as they sold he would keep 'em. Haven't looked for 'em the last few times I was there so don't know for sure if they still have them. How do they work in the winter?

There a great universal bait. I've caught walleyes, bass and northerns. Plus they can take a beating. On one minnow about three weeks ago I caught 5 northerns. But on average I would say you can catch 3 fish per minnow. Overall I would say if they have them get a half dozen.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
