Anyone know where I can get some redtails come September?

I'll be with family near Dorset.

Either somewhere near there or enroute. I'll be taking 64 up from Motley.

Thanks in advance all!!!!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

STORE. I asked for bait one time in there and they directed me to a house that provides bait to all the bait shops in the area.

There is a bait shop in pillager that carries redtails and creek chubs, I know its a little out of the way but it maybe something you want to check on.

Try Northern Bait Co. in Park Rapids. They do wholesale and retail so they usually have the best bait in the area.

We stopped for bait in Motley Tuesday night at a little bait shop on the south side of Motley on the east side of Highway #10. They had a very nice selection of bait, leeches being the only thing they were short of. They had it all from water dogs to redtails. I think the name of it is "Charlie Browns" or something like that.

Man they were so expensive they were offering a life insurance policy on them. Just kiddin...I think they were about $5-$6 a dozen. Man they had all kinds of creek chubs and some things they were selling I've caught before (when I was a kid on the wing river). Good Luck fishing

Jim W , Charlie browns in motley is the spot for red tails $6.50/dz if your going up hwy 10. It is in motley right after moreys. If you need leeches try to find them before you go I am not sure if you can even find any in the cities. If anyone knows could you post where. Thanks

FYI:
Delaneys in Park Rapids had great "Creek Chubs" last week at $4.75 a dozen. It was a mix of Red & Blue Tail minnows, and they gave you about 30 minows for that price. The size was perfect. However, I don't belive they always have these minnows.

      There were a lot of ATV/SxS running around the lake but I found it quite slippery even with AWD engaged.  I did see a couple of snowmobiles crossing the lake.  There is enough snow to keep the slides lubricated, especially when the temperature is above freezing.  If your track is studded that would help traction and slide lubrication.

      It looks like it's ATV/SxS season on the lake. Snowmobile season is on temporary (or permanent) hiatus.

      Was back Tuesday-Thursday this week after I discovered that walleye season ends on Sunday, February 25th.  I thought that the season has closed the last day of February in recent years.  I see that I fished on Monday, February 28th two winters ago so lucky I didn't get busted then.   The ice was in very good shape.  I found 15-18 inches of solid ice in the areas I checked.  There was no standing water on the ice and very little snow as shown in the 3 pictures of the McKinley Park landing from Thursday afternoon.  When the temperature was below freezing, the ice was very slippery.  When it warmed up mid day it wasn't as bad.  The landing was starting to deteriorate today, but with the cold weather on Friday it should freeze over.  It may start to get bad again by Sunday when it warms up.  Full size vehicles were still driving out close to Birch Island so apparently that path is still good.   Fishing was very good for late season.  Most of my walleyes were again 9-12 inches, but I did catch a 21, 24, and 27.  I was lucky to catch my limit of 14-15 inchers today to bring home for a meal.  The walleyes preferred small rainbows, but also liked lively chubs.  I caught four fish on the same small rainbow today when I was running low on small ones.  I finally gave up on that minnow when I went 20 minutes without a bite.  I had 3 rainbows come off the hook on their own; one when I dropped it in the hole and the other two when I dropped them to the bottom.  I think that happens when you hook them in the soft part of their body.  I caught my first tulibee of the winter (15 inches) and it really stunk up the house.  I also caught a lot of perch for the first time this winter.  I only caught 1 perch the previous 14 days I fished, but I caught 11 perch in these 3 last days, including six that were 11-13 inches long.  I wish I liked to eat perch so I could have kept them.  The hardest bite I had this week was by the pictured 8 inch walleye.  This little guy grabbed that full sized minnow and pulled it quickly to to bottom of the hole.  (However the 27 inch walleye did peel off a bit of drag bringing her in).  Morning bite from 830 to 1230 was best.   If you venture out the last weekend of the season, good luck.  Be cautious of ice conditions since the sun can really melt some holes in the ice this late in the season.
