i pretty much know ice fishing is toast around here, but are these places still carrying bait, like minnows or waxies around here???????? headed to bowstring area friday morning so i called 2 places that sell bait up on hwy 6. both said they have no minnows and they heard the ponds froze out so noone is getting minnows.

But like your wife, they had a better idea than yours! 🤣

 

If you could swing through Little Falls or Brainerd on your way up, Da Fishin Hole, Fleet Supply and Baxter Fleet Farm probably have what you need.

 

Um, excuse me...  what you want. 😉

We're covered. Picked up waxies at Kiess's. They also had a pile of minnows.

 

Call my pal  George at the bait shop in deer river. He got plenty minnows to.he also said there is no more 2 layers of ice and only a couple beat up accesses.

He also has good news about the ice. Said a few accesses were getting beat up but there isn't any more of the 2 layers of ice.

Bet you can leave work a little earlier to make it to Fred's if you want.🤔 Because your probably not doin anything besides thinking about going fishing anyway & no one will notice.😉🙂

      We came up yesterday & didn't see the little trailer they use there yet. The cameras at The Narrows were showing a lot of open water going west too, when I looked this morning

      last 2 evenings have been fantastic.  Bird activity has been "predictable" and often. The group 3 toms are running on borrowed time now.  They made a mistake last night, however, Isaac froze and didnt pull the trigger.  Until next time.

      tight lines.

      I understand it was certified. I simply stated that I saw a video that shows what looks to be a hook in the back of the fish. And then you asked where this video was at so I posted the link to the video. It doesn’t matter to me if it was snagged or not.
