I would call Scheels in Mankato or St Cloud. I may have an extra pound of Accurate #9 which I used for 10mm and now use for 357mag. Let me check when I get home after 6pm. I'm in Savage so it wouldnt be very far.

Sorry It took me a couple days to get back to you. I did look I have only one pound of #9 and I use that for my 357. Did Scheels have anything? I will stay on the lookout for you.

this whole powder shortage sucks big time. I am looking hi and low for win 231, unique, long shot, blue dot, or any pistol powder for that matter. I did have a little luck in that a co worker is watching different places for me and was able to get me a bottle of 700x. I looked up some of the rounds I want to load and found formulas for using the 700X. I will be able to use it for 9mm, .380 Auto, & .45 Auto rounds. I have this person looking for some 800X also so I can do some .40 S&W & 10MM rounds. I did run across a person on the internet that had some win 231 for sale but they were asking $35.00 per pound (not the best price but I would of paid it) and $40.00 for the hazmat shipping on it(shiiping was to rich for my blood). I am kind of taking the stance of just buying new factory rounds for the 9mm, .380 Auto, & .45 Auto and then saving the casings for when powder starts to show back up on the market. In the mean time I am trying to get as many primers on hands as I can so I don't run short on them. as for bullets I just started casting my own and as long as lead can be found I am set with bullets. hopefully my lead source never dries up.I also use this lead for making fishing jigs and sinkers.

      I agree on circle hooks, just remember you don’t need to set the hook hard just pull tight. When we go up to LOTW and fish in Canada you can’t bring in live bait so these use soda water instead. If that helps you feel better about killing your cut bait

      Welcome to FM @burgoyne.   BBs advice is great. There are quite a few here who fish the area.   I'm guessing someone will be along shortly who can help you out.   Have fun and be sure to get some oics to show us how it's going.

      work the area between Daisy and Banana Island, it's near where you're at. There are three hazard markers there, just be careful with your lower unit   There are plenty of Pike spots in Daisy Bay - study the map and follow the wind. 8-10' breaklines where the wind is blowing into. Look for mid-lake structure that support Ciscos and Perch.

      Franconia or Somerset landings. Quite a bit of fishable shoreline at both spots. Boomsite wayside is fishable too, but there’s always way too many people down there, and too much boat traffic for my liking.

      Got a report that my Father inlaw was out on the chain to see what he could find for Walleyes and said he landed a 18" and a 27.5" on the westside of the chain before the storms were rolling in.  I hadn't talked to him but in this particular area I know we usually will use jigging raps instead of live bait due to the fact that the perch devour any live bait you put down.

      Welcome to MN! While i'm not familiar with the Eagan area I would suggest using the MN DNR recreation compass. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/maps/compass/index.html  some searching on the link above will not only provide you fish creel surveys, but lake maps and water clarity reports. I've spent countless hours cyber scouting lakes. Good luck!
    • Barbelboy
      yeah, with larger suckers i just pre-cut the bait and keep in a little cooler so it stays fresh. I usually use a treble hook and chicken liver, but when i use cut bait a circle hook is my go to.

      Fished a small lake up by Togo this weekend. Just a bit in mornings and evenings. First nights crappies but a walleye never bit. Watched a beautiful thunderstorm at sundown that just scraped us a few minutes.

      Just cut the head off first.

      looking to try cut bait for catfishing. Usual use nightcrawlers or stink bait, but am looking to filter the Rockbass and small cats.  I'm gunna buy a couple decoy suckers and use. But am wondering how to humanely kill and cut up? Or do I just cut umm alive while flopping like a serial killer?
