I got the double bummer in a week, first 169 Sports closes it's doors in Belle Plaine, so yesterday I went down to Monty to get bait only to find out that Larry and Alice have closed the doors as of last Wednesday. Ended up going to Shieldsville to get bait. I do fish the Southern lakes every now and again and this only makes it tougher to find good bait. The business is tough and I will miss Larry and company.

WOW... I used to go there for bait lots of times! Was the closest place there was to Hooterville to get bait when the guy in town was not open. Are they closed for good or what? Seemed like there was always some business there. Where do you go in Shieldsville? Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

In Shieldsville there is the gas station (Lakeside One Stop) that has a very good selection of bait.

In Lonsdale there is also a bait shop

Yeah, I hang out and BS with Kyle a lot at the Lonsdale bait shop, but some days at the time I want to go fishing he is not there so I used to run to Novotny's on those days. Do they have a good selection of minnows at the gas station? Thanks and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Yes, I too went to get some minnows yesterday and found that they've closed up. Quite a shame, because they were a good source of bait, equipment, licenses, gas and good tips on where the fish were biting and close to home. I'm going to miss them. I know the place was for sale.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
