Live bait supply???

Recommended Posts

fishinz4me

I was wondering if there is going to be a shortage of live bait such as shinners and or fatheads.... With the restrictions that have been put into place because of the Spiny Waterflea we were wondering if we should stop on our way up to get bait.. We fish on the west side so i was thinking about calling the Gateway and Bait n Bite to see what they had to say... Any info is appreciated.. Thanks and have a GREAT opener...

Bait should be no problem. Phil just totally cleaned and overhauled the minnow tanks last week because he had a "big shipment" coming in! I can almost feel the tug on my line now!!!

Not sure if this is derailing this thread, but what the best place to get bait (minnows/leaches) between Orr and Crane Lake?

fishinz4me, try Cold Springs between Orr and Kabetogama. Largest dealer around the area and decent prices. Worth seeing their tanks.

Cold Springs is a great bait store with a great selection and pricing the only problem is that they aren't between Orr and Crane Lake.

That is correct. If you read my post you will also notice that I was responding to fishinz4me as he was inquiring about bait on his way to the west end of Kabetogama.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
