I was at the EP Gander Mtn a couple days ago, all they had for shiners were small, medium and a hand full of large mixed in.

I ask the clerk about them and he said it will be the same problem as last years supply if not worst.

I asked a guy in the bait shop in owatonna cabelas and they said they probably wont get any shiners at all.

I hink you will find the occassional larger shiners mixed in with the regular ones - but you wont find those nice large silver shiners for nort fishing anymore - because they cant be transported in.

Funny thing is I am from the Fergus Falls area - and go back to that area about every other weekend. I would find some REALLY nice shiners all year round at one of the local baoit shops around there. They were really nice ones - and I would buy a couple dozen and bring them down here- and they would live until I had used all of them. I am going to try that again this year. But I dont think the local bait stores around here will have a conistent supply - at least of the oarger ones...maybe the smaller ones for the eyes. Could be wrong - keep us posted as to what you find out.

Do you happen to go to the trading post there?

If so my uncle don owns it!!!

It's a great place to get minnows when he's there because he'll throw in maybe another half scoop if you ask for 2 scoops..

    • 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.
