    Hoping to get out in the area this Saturday. Normally I’d prefer to not hit one of the local waters around Rochester on a weekend because of how busy it will be but Saturday is flanked by some pretty cold weather almost every other day.

    Anyone know where to get wax worms? I’ve gotten them at Kwik Trip on north broadway by the old Shopko before but I hate to rely on a gas station because they can be hit or miss on if they have them or not. I could try Scheels but that’s a little farther drive for me. Wasn’t there a bait shop close to downtown off Broadway that opened or reopened recently?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Wild Goose should have them.
    North Bdwy across the street from McDonald’s.

    You’re thinking of Minske Bait and Tackle. On North Broadway right across from McDonald’s near Silver Lake.

    Yep, that’s the place. Was Wild Goose for years but Ralph must have sold out. Have not been inside for years but they must be the new owners.

    Minske is good. Very willing to share current info.

    Dan, I’ve had pretty good look at that Kwik Trip you mention. Plenty of supply – just check out status of the waxies before buying in case some real old ones in there. But Minske good too.

    Sportsman’s rack sells wax worms at a solid price too. Now I just wish more places carried spikes!
