Support the local businesses

2 posts in this topic

Just a Reminder to everyone to please support the small guys. I know that it is awsome to go into a "Box store" and see all the fish tanks and the thousands of rods and reels and the guns and the furniture and so on and so on... But lets remember that the guy you buy your minnows from needs to sell more than a dozen minnows to keep his lights on. I Always make it a point to support the local businesses when I go on vacation. This guy is here in his store waiting to tell you where and how to catch fish or where the birds are at or whatever. The only way to make sure he is still there next year is to do a little business with him. The kid at the "box store" doesn't have the foggiest notion what they are hitting on the last three days but I bet the guy at the local bait shop does and as long as he is there he will be happy to tell you! smile.gif

good point, if everyone who stopped for info bought just a few new lures and a box of line or so it would go along way. so they cost a couple bucks more but the local store just may be there again next year .whats an extra 20 on a thousand dollar trip.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
