Bait Shop - Hampton? Cannon Falls?

Recommended Posts

Johnny_Da_Der

I am planning on heading down towards the Cannon River and was wondering if anybody knows if there is a bait shop in the area.

Good question - I live South of Hastings and was wondering the same thing lately.

There is a small garage in cannon falls. I can't remember what street, but it is about a 1/2 block West of the main drag, Street is somewhere around the the cenex gas station and the other gas station. I am sure some on in the store whould get you on you way. Very small hand painted sign on ground leaning on garage, it is detatched from main house, I think they may both be painted greeen. You may have to ring bell if he's in the house. I may be able to find out the cross street and post. when are you headed down? Almost went down the cannon yesterday, but was talked into the kinnikinick, beautiful float.

Oasis is where I stop. There is nothing in Hampton (as far as bait goes).

I was went down yesterday at the bridge on 56 (I think it's 56).

Somehow I managed to get skunked. There were a handful of other people down there catching carp, redhorse, even a few walleye. I had some crawlers and minnows. Didn't even get a bite..... not sure what i was doing wrong.

Thanks for the bait shop tips guys.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
