John have you been fishing Cedar at all this year? Just curious how the bite is?
If your headed to cedar lake and depending which camp your at you can get your minnows at clarks there at northern lights resort on the camp Robinson rd.right off hwy #105.biggest bait dealer I Ontario.
Clarks provides minnows to all there guests on both drive inns and fly inns.
Wini- Bobby's is right off Hwy 17 in V. Bay.. Gas station with a decent supply of bait/fishing equipment and food/snacks etc.. They have a website with more data if you are interested.. We have stopped a couple of times as we take 105 up towards Red Lake..
Where is Bobbies?
We always stop at Bobbies they have a large selection of sporting goods plus bait and gifts. They sell bulk leeches and decent minnow prices vs the resorts. Another option is Rainy Lake sports which you will pass in Fort Francis on the left right across from the water. They sell bulk leeches also
Bobby's sport shop in Vermillion Bay.
He has ice cream too!
I am looking for minnows in Canada maybe around Dryden or vermilion bay. Leeches are not allowed to cross the border.
Minnows have to be frozen with salt or borax. NO LIVE MINNOWS across the border. Worms are ok as long as they are in bedding, not plain dirt. Tell the local bait shop when you order a flat your going to Canada, they'll know what to do. We bring a flat of nightcrawlers for about every 4 guys in our group. Pretty sure you still can't bring leeches across the border.
Headed to Cedar Lake again in a couple of weeks and looking for some help. Any idea where and how much bulk love bait should cost. Also how do you transport your bulk minnows to the lodge? I plan on using a sinkable bait enclosure when I get to the lake. Any other concerns I may have overlooked? Just wanting to avoid some of the cost of buying at the lodge.
