BAIT....GENE'S in PERHAM

Recommended Posts

Guest

Just wanted to pass along a good old fashioned heads up for those of you needing good bait....bought a pound of large leeches Wednesday....called Gene's ahead of time....they were ready when I arrived AND they were larger than the Jumbos in Saint Cloud AND they were $11.00 cheaper! KUDOS to GENE's AGAIN AND AGAIN!!!!

I can also put a plug in for the Sports Shop in Perham. They do a great job of keeping their bait fresh. They will also work hard to do what they can to accomodate you. They fish a lot themselves, so they know what works as far as tackle and equipment also.

I am a big fan of St. Croix rods, and was really interested in the reels that St. Croix now sells. I was at Genes sometime around the 4th to pick up some bait and a new fishing rod for my daughter (not a St. Croix though) I asked if they carried the St Croix reels and what they thought of them. The guy pulls one out and hands it to me to look at and flat out says not to buy it, he already had one and was not happy with it at all, especially at the price.
Honest opinions and advice - gotta like that.

Was just there on Sat. the 10th and picked up some shiners and Redtails and its great when you ask for a dozen and they don't count you out just 12, there dozen is more like 2 dozen (maybe it's just new math)..

A few years ago I was looking at a new shotgun, and was on the fence, they gave me a box of shells and said go shoot it, if you don't like it I'll take it back.....

That's service

i also have nothing bad to say about Genes. the bait in the winter is also the best around, especially the shiners, they arent the big arkansas shiners like normal shops have that time of the year, they are MN river shiners. All the bait keeps a long time. Got some red tails once that kept to 2 months with only 2 or 3 dieing. good bait at a higher price is alway better than the **** that dies right away, but they dont by any means over charge. Genes is a great place!!!

this is just my 2 cents

Gene's in the greatest bait shop in the best bait shop in the planet...period. Tom is great and always gives you great deals or advice. No matter what your looking for they can find it. I only come up to perham once or twice a year since it is a 10 hour drive for me, but even thought i'm not a regular, they treat me like one. Now, if only they would bring back "Gene's favorites" spinner baits, i could get a good nights sleep. Oh well, i'll live

find me a small mouth!

I Couldn't agree with you guys More. They guys and gal at Gene's are Great. Does anyone know if Old Gene is still around??

I try to buy quite a bit of my lures up at Genes. I can easily get them cheeper at Walmart or K-Mart, but I would much rather spend an extra buck or two for good service and good advise.
And they sell the minnows buy the scoop for about 2.50. And you easily get 2 1/2 to 3 dozen minnows.
I wish they would bring back to biggest fish contest. I like looking at all the pictures of the fish. It also kept me, by little bro, and my cousins busy all week, trying to catch the biggest bullhead of the week. We would hurry into Gene's everyday to check to see if we were still in first place. ( like anyone else would actually bring bullheads in!!)
I can't wait to visit them in about a week.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.
