Live bait

Anyone know if any baitshops have suckers or bullheads yet close to the west side of the metro?

Definitely no shortage of Sucker in the Kato bait shops, but still no luck on Creek Chub sadly. Gander up in the Metro area not stocking up on Sucker yet sir?

The going rate for Heavy Sucker, at least here around Mankato, seems to be in the 1.50-2.00 range apiece, and I believe in season, Chub are right in that neighborhood as well. Course the bullhead we pull out around here are free - fifty, which I always say is a bargain.

I like to have a few heavies with and the rest in the med range when I cannot get bullheads.

Yeah heavies make for some nice cut chunks, and if you're feeling lucky will do for live bait ... they do seem to like to 'dig in' the mud from time to time, the nice thing about chub is they won't do that. I would say my live bait hierarchy would be Bullhead > Chub > Suckers

Last time I was at Moore's, Bob had both bullheads and chubs, but no suckers.

I just got back from bait fishing and brought home 10 chubs and 3 decoy sized suckers. The fish are out there to be caught guys, and all it cost's is time!

Tom- I know it's probably not to easy for you to just go jumping around in a creek bed, with your new knee and all, they are there and very willing to eat! I may also be able to help you out from time to time this year. Being that I have found 6-8 new spots to catch bait whistle
