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?

How much are they costing now?

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

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.

    •   Wanderer, you better scaddle on out of these parts before your soul gets taken and your brain gets fried too!
    •   Yeah, you better stick with Bob's girl above old timer. She wouldn't swallow what your selling either!
