I will have to check that out next time the shiners dissappear. I like the Madison Lake shop and the Bobber shop. Gander and Scheels are OK but who wants to carry the bucket all the way through the retail store there? Poor planning IMO

If you want good bait and have a plan then go to the bobber shop for the quick stop, if you need local lake info the Madison lake store is full of easy going friendly employees that are always more than willing to shoot the [PoorWordUsage] for a while.

I stopped at Walt's this morning for the first time. Very impressed. Got the standard amount of bait and a pop for the road and Walt gave me a card for what will eventually be free minnows. I'll definitely be back.

      Hey, Oakley is one of my favorite brands, but now many suppliers of wholesale sunglasses are accessible on the Internet selling sunglasses in bulk.

      Hi there, Polarized sunglasses of lens color like a grey base lens with a blue mirror is the way to go or for freshwater and inshore an amber, rose or copper lens with a green mirror are lenses that can be worn. My father is also a fisherman, So, I bought wholesale sun glasses for him from some useful sites. I always prefer to buy sunglasses in bulk, as buying bulk gives a number of choices to wear and it is also affordable in cost.

      Hey Guys, I'm wondering what the water temp on the St.Croix is. I Haven't herd anything, all I know is that Catfish become inactive after it drops below 60F. I want to know if they have already become inactive, you would think we would at least have until October.    One more inquire,  anyone one know about a nice carp lake north of the metro. Most people don't like fishing for common carp, but they are a great fall fish to catch when they Get 30+ plus pounds.
