I do not see anything wrong with putzs post. Good info. on live bait, ice jigs, and so on.I was in the Necedah bait shop two weeks ago with my husband, and I would be proud to be catering to the musky fisherman, no one in 50 mil.is doing it good for you guys. I did not see a lot of terminal tackle, but lots of northland ice jigs and spoons and some shacks, augers gas-lp-and I think elect.All and all I think putz did a good job reporting whats in the area for all use fisher persons.

I think putz-man is wrong about the shop in Necedah. It does have alot of musky baits but it also has everything i need for open water fishing, ice fishing, and even the corn i need for my chickens. Tight lines.

The Castle Rock Dam Bait Shop is reopening on February 27. If I knew I could justify opening even on the weekends during the winter I would. Currently open in 2015 From February 27 until November 1

Not a report a update on what is left for bait shops on the Pete. or Rock.A new shop in Necedah has all the live bait and ice jigs rods and reels, but is catering to the musky fisherman, needs a little for all open water fisherman. Buckhorn has all types of live bait and tackle, good but not for the Pete.Wilderness bait and tackle no longer, over publicized and way over priced, no loss but how much it will be missed.JB Sales live bait,rods and reels and a good tackle verity and goodys to take a long.Petewell sport shop all the live bait, as for the rest, coolers well needs some stuff, as for rods, reels and tackle may be some growing pains, I think they do not know what to put in the store. If any more bait shops out there let every one know.The shop at 13 & Co.Rd. C no live bait right now, a lot of bass baits and water toys and boat rentals.

Good eaters Bob. Not sure why people get bent outta shape over others keeping smaller fish.....its the larger panfish that are the best breeding stock. The largest panfish should actually be the ones released.

About 35 years ago, we used to ice fish northerns just off the Strongsprairie boat landing area in shallow water. I am curious if anyone has tried that area in the last few years and have you had any success. We did quite well back then.

Chill the ice is perfect by Carlsons. Only issue would be if you go out in a truck make sure it has good ground clearance. There is a lip of ice where it meets the beach sticks up like a foot. I took a atv and it was fine. Once your on the lake its smooth sailing. Hope this helps.

Nice catch Bob, nice to see some perch. Don't let the haters bother you. It's hard to match those giant Mason Lake gills!

Nice fish Bob. I bet you could fit an entire Mountain Dew can inside that pig of a perch and I'm sure those old boys had a good time.

On 1-27 I hit the rock for a couple of hours with a buddy targeting eyes. We were lazy and only soaked big shiners about 6 inches off the bottom on tip ups. Slow couple hours with a few shorts and one 4 pound slot. We did have a few hits that popped the flag with nothing to show for it. Most of our fish were just off the yellow river channel on brush. We never jigged, just sat in the truck and let the shiners work.

Ten to twelve inch fish are respectable fish and the customer can keep whatever they want to as long as its legal. Can't catch all whoppers every single time out.I'm pretty sure these gentlemen might feel somewhat insulted about your negativity toward their fish. They were pretty proud of themselves at 58 and 60 years old to brave the cold today and catch some nice meals of fish. To these two gentlemen I made their year because they don't get to fish very much.
