Bait Shop West of Fort Frances on 11/71

6 posts in this topic

Last time I was in Fort Frances we stopped at Witherspoons to buy leaches. I’ve heard they are now closed.

We are heading west on 11/71 out of Fort Frances then north on 71 through Nester Falls and Sioux Narrows. Do any of you have recommendations on bait shops along the way that sell leaches by the pound?

Thanks,

rcguy.

Your best bet is likely Rainy Lake Sports just East of Fort Frances by about 1 to 2 miles. Look them up on the internet for directions.

Thanks for the reply Eastwind.

I would like to find one west of Fort Frances so we don't have to double back. A couple of miles isn't that big a deal so your recommendation on Rainy Lake Sports could work for us.

Village Variety in Emo on the left hand side of the road sells leeches by the pound and have minnows and crawlers as well. In Nestor Falls there is Anglers Pro Shop and Nestor Falls Bait & Tackle, they both sell leeches by the pound as well. Rainy Lake Sports always has leeches and has good quality as well, but is a little out of the way.

Stop at Anglers pro in Nestor Falls, Phil has always given us great bait. He really has good leeches when everyone else seems to be running out.

Good Luck.

Thanks for the reply's all.

Sounds like I can find bait in Nestor Falls (after we stop at the Emo Inn for lunch) on our way up to Reddens on Longbow lake.

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
