Have you seen the size of there scoops?

Recommended Posts

I was just in the Forest Lake Gander Mountain, and I have NEVER gotten such big scoops of shiners!! Normally maybe you will get 13 per dozen..maybe 14....but I bought 4 dozen and it looks like it is almost 5 dozen!

They arealso having a sale on flats of crawlers!!

The bait out of the Sweedish village between north and south center lakes is also great....pick up a LARGE scoop of fatties for $1.35/scoop when the new owners of the mike's bait off of highway 8 is lookin' for $3.00/scoop. Not to mention one scoop at the sweedish village tops two at the old mike's....just had to plug 'em! smile.gif

Just my 2 cents, but I try to avoid the big CHAIN stores, especially for bait. They do just fine on everything else they sell. I'd rather give the small business owner who's livleyhood depends on all of us fisherman to feed their families. They NEED and most appreciate our business very much. They may not always be as kiss butt as we'd like, but you may not be in a chipper mood on Saturday evening at 7:00 when you are working on your 12th staright day of work and you started that day at 5:00AM. SUPPORT OUR LOCAL SMALL BAIT SHOPS!!!! Just my opinion.

Good call Uncle Dave, you hit it right on the head. The small town Mom & Pop shops NEED the business a heck of a lot more than the huge "big box" stores do. You're right, they might not be as friendly as they should but who is? I've been in and around the bait business all my life and can say one thing, if I go to a shop and ask for a dz minnows and get 14 or 15, I'll never stop there again. Live bait is a big money product no matter what anyone says. Ask for a dz and a good shop will show you close to 18. Many places you'll get too many, if there is any such thing. That's what makes a good shop. And because of this, I'll show my appreciation by dropping a few $ at the same store even if I can find it cheaper at Gander or any of the other big guys. Like Uncle Dave said, just my opinion. Ed

Thanks Guys us small family owned bait shops need all the help we can get. I appreciate your support and I know what you mean about not having days off. I haven't had a day off since early April. Also I'm not so sure big stores always have the best prices. I've walked through and see that our prices beat their's on a regular basis. But they do offer a large selection which is nice. So support the little guys because when they're all gone you'll have to buy your minnows at the gas station.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
