Take me to your leader

August 14, 2017

August 6, 2017

Stopped at Bush Lake mid-afternoon on the way to put the boat in storage.  The sky was threatening rain and we did get a little damp.  No fish, but it got me to thinking.

While out on Waconia the preceding day I snapped off a leader, which means that I need to go buy some leaders as I was running low to begin with.  But where does one go for a leader these days?

Hence the heading: Take me to your leader.  Gander Mountain which replaced the famed Burger Brothers back in the day has filed for bankruptcy and will be closed.  Thorne Bros. is awesome but forty minutes away.  Fleet Farm – half hour away on a good day.  There are no local bait shops that carry quality tackle.

I know go online…Bass Pro…Amazon Prime.

Just not the same.

I liked to walk the aisles and pick up a lure or two that I didn’t need but that caught my eye.
