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.

    • A pic of the creek where we hunt, my deer, son in laws deer. Blended all 3 to 1. Ended up kinda neat for us. 
    • I have used a Toro single stage for about 10 years now. I was very skeptical until I helped a friend with snow removal. I won't ever go back to a 2 stage. Mine is a 2 stroke but I've seen the 4 stroke Toros in action and they seem just as good. There have been a couple times of heavy snow fall where I had to do the driveway in the middle of a storm and again at the end and also times of breaking up the plow ridge at the end but the pros far outweigh the cons. I like that it folds up like a lawnmower. When I get the mower out in the spring the blower goes under the shelf. No more big bulky blower in the way all the time and the rubber paddles clean right down to the cement. It's light enough to throw in the pickup and if you lift on the handles it'll propel itself if the snow isn't super deep. Go for the single. You won't regret it. 
    • The best snow thrower I’ve used is the one that uses your arms and a shovel😂 No blower or plow for me I can have the driveway done in the same amount of time if not a hair faster than a blower and, we’ve got a pretty decent sized driveway to, We get a good pile at the end from the grader that plows the township roads. I have wanted to mount a plow on one of the wheelers to plow the road as our township is extremely cheap and there must be Minimum 3-4 inches to plow. Anyway single stages are better for smaller drive ways and less snow. Personally I’d never by a single stage as you get a decent snow load and it may get frustrating or that pile at the end from the plow. But being you have a 2 stage as well it shouldn’t be an issue. Finding a good heavy duty rig with a good engine is key. Toro makes a good blower as well as huqvarna IMO. Im not sure if  huqvarna evenmakes smaller blower though.
    • I wouldn't get the Honda 4-Cycle Single Stage.  We have one at work and they are gutless wonders.  We also have the Toro 2 cycle single stage and that has a lot more balls!  IMO.  😉
    • A good bottle of bourbon or case of beer might make a difference.....
    • Great feedback.  I guess I will go with the single stage.  Just wish I had a solution for keeping the plow driver from pushing our entire culdesac's snow onto my lawn.
    • I have a Gen1 Helix 5 and love it on the ice, but also use it on my kayak. If I were to do it over again I would have got the 7" or bigger. Its not so much an issue on the ice but DI/SI is hard  to fully utilize on a 5" screen.
    • I always use 6lb mono for jigging rods and And 8lb mono on deadsticks. No leaders for me I’ve debated it but it doesn’t really seem to make a difference if you have one or not. 
    • My thinking is the grease would make up for the gap, but wasn't sure if it'll still have too much play. Yet, don't want it too tight where it gets stuck.
    • I think the tube is DOM 1/2" thick. Was afraid 1/4" too thin and cannot find any other tube that would fit another solid rod inside. Don't want to get something I have to get machined $$$... At least with arm I can pull out and have another made if not good. Not sure how to make the grooves with hand tools?
