Bait shop?

Postby ChiTown_kayaking » Jan Thu 05, 2017 12:31 am

Does anyone know of a bait shop or somewhere we could pick up bait around eagle lake Wisconsin? I know its last min but me and a friend are heading out tomorrow and we have never ice fished here before so i have no clue where i can pick up bait. Thanks in advance, hope to have something to post tomorrow night.

I've driven through about a million times. I don't know any place in particular, but there are numerous bait shops just on the main highways in town. Many of the gas stations up there have bait, some with minnows too. I hope you have a shelter. Looking at the Chicago forecast and assuming it'll be colder as you head north, your will freeze you butts off without one.

You guys think there is safe ice up there to make the 1.5 hr trip to eagle lake. I went on lake link and they said north side was 12" on the jan 9th. But the south side was full of holes and sketchy ice, is that even possible? Still want to try and make it out there Friday, but I don't want to waste the gas or time to find out I can't. If anyone has any info it will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I try to read all reports on Lake link regarding Southeast Wisco. Sure sounds like some safe ice , but also some folks have gone in also. I dont ice fish so i am no expert. There are other Lakes that are pretty darn good too if Eagle dont work.
