    In three days I'm kicking off my much anticipated angler marathon; three weeks of no worries....other than catching fish.

    Anyway, I only know of two live bait shops; one is at Cross Lake and the other is going out towards Cypress. Since I'll be staying in Haughton and fishing mostly the Red, where can I find some local shops? I need crickets when I take my daughter/wife out to Clear Lake.

    Thank you, in advance.

    When you fish Clear Lake, get your crickets from the Shoppette on the East side of Base; otherwise Robert covered it.

    Patric like Rob said you can get some bait from the E. shoppette. You may also want to try Harmon lake, Clear lake aint looking too clear right now.

    The Sportsmans Depot about six miles north of I-220 on Hwy 1 is a very good bait shop. Open 7-7 Mon thru Friday and 6:30 - 5 pm on weekends and it is open on most holidays - - it is open on July 4th.

    It is a part of Northwood bait and tackle, a wholesale bait and tackle shop. Northwood sells bait and tackle to many of the small bait and tackle stores in north La.

    Sportsman Depot has a large selection of fishing supplies and bait. The have a much larger selection of catfishing supplies than Bass Pro.
