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.

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
