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

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
