The price of bait will jump this year, due to the fact of VHS and states not knowing how to control it's spread. Wisc. just had a big scare on the price of minnows , till the DNR up there recinded a testing law. As of now you can't take any live bait into Canada, and Minn. is looking into not allowing live bait from other states. To be continued .
Does any one know of a bait (minnow) shop in Seneca area that is open. All those I knew in the past are closed. Closest I know on the way to LaSalle from Naperville is in Yorkville near the dam. Any up-to-date info would be appreciated. Thanks.
I know what you mean about the bait shops in Seneca :-? A couple of gas stations in town have crawlers but that's about it. Depending on which way you take out there there's the Feed Loft on rt.6 in Channahon,or there's a shop called JRs' bait on Washington st. in Morris.
The owner of Blades and Bullets passed a few years ago, his wife tried to keep the shop running, but decided to sell. The archery shop claimed to have minnows last year, but everytime I went up there in the a.m. to get minnows they were closed. Get a cast net and a minnow seine and you get can get all the free bait from the source. 2
