Bait Shop - Hampton? Cannon Falls?

6 posts in this topic

I am planning on heading down towards the Cannon River and was wondering if anybody knows if there is a bait shop in the area.

Good question - I live South of Hastings and was wondering the same thing lately.

There is a small garage in cannon falls. I can't remember what street, but it is about a 1/2 block West of the main drag, Street is somewhere around the the cenex gas station and the other gas station. I am sure some on in the store whould get you on you way. Very small hand painted sign on ground leaning on garage, it is detatched from main house, I think they may both be painted greeen. You may have to ring bell if he's in the house. I may be able to find out the cross street and post. when are you headed down? Almost went down the cannon yesterday, but was talked into the kinnikinick, beautiful float.

Oasis is where I stop. There is nothing in Hampton (as far as bait goes).

I was went down yesterday at the bridge on 56 (I think it's 56).

Somehow I managed to get skunked. There were a handful of other people down there catching carp, redhorse, even a few walleye. I had some crawlers and minnows. Didn't even get a bite..... not sure what i was doing wrong.

Thanks for the bait shop tips guys.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
