I just got the hours that Conoco will be open for fishing opener. We will be staying open until at least 12:00 Friday night and then I will be opening up shop at 4:30 on Sat. Sunday is still up in the air, but I may open the same time on Sunday as Sat., 4:30. We decided we were going to wait to see the forcast for Sunday. The decision for Sunday will be made mid next week. We will be open by 6:00 for sure.

Thanks

Thanks for taking the time to post this. Ever since Boone's closed, and then Bob's closed, Conoco has been the only bait shop in Buffalo. Thanks for staying fisherman-friendly! I can't believe that the county seat with two premier lakes can't support it's bait shops better. If Conoco quit selling bait, that would be a big hassle. Keep it up!

I second federline's comments. I love fishing Buffalo and it would be areal hassle if you guys didn't have bait. I hope the business is good for it so you can keep it up.

Thank you!

Jim

Thanks for the kind words. I will make sure I pass them along to the head huncho. IF there is anything we could carry that some of you would like see, little stuff, not shacks, augers, electronics, things along that line, just say something I can pass that along to see if he wants to do it. I have made a few suggestions that we are going to carry. He ordered a lot more this year since we are the only place that has bait. So we are still seeing what is going to sell the best and what does not sell. The boss does not fish so he is learning as he is going and I think he has been doing a pretty good job.

Thanks

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
