Willmar Bait Shops


Recommended Posts

In the eagle lake forum,there was some talk about the bait shops in willmar and the differences in them.....We need what we have in this town when it comes to fishing and hunting and are losing outdoor sporting good stores (holmbrothers) the way it is already.I do as little shopping for fishing supplies out of town as much as possible and try to give my business to the "little guys" in the Willmar area.Wouldn't it be great to get Brad and J together and open us up something like the sportsmans warehouse store in St.Cloud.

I agree we need a better sporting goods store in willmar. I personally disagree about Holm Bros AKA in some circles as Hold UP Bros. Any way a couple guys from work and I were talking about the same thing If a larger store Like Gander or Sportsmans could "make it". The one co worker would like to see a paint ball range? How long has the old Pamida building been out of buisness? That would be a Great place for a bigger store or partnership.

I just heard recently that Mills Fleet Farm was not coming in. It was just supposed to be a new Mills car dealership. That could be wrong too. I was hoping Fleet Farm would come in. I know the Brainerd one has an awesome selection of icefishing gear.

Fleet Farm is going to be building at the same site as the dealership just to the south. They aren't planning on even breaking ground for atleast a year and a half though. This is coming from someone that works at mills.

Mills just made an announcement last week that 'at this time, a Fleet Farm is not planned for Willmar'.

I've been hearing a 'Fleet Farm in Willmar' rumor for the last 10 years. It would be nice, but St. Cloud or Alex aren't that far away.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
