    Hi all,

    Just wondering where or if there are places aside from Brown's (off of Dennis in Olathe) to buy minnows. Seems weird there are no other bait shops near Shawnee Mission Park or somewhere. Does Bass Pro sell minnows?

    Thanks in advance...

    Minnesota Bait and Fly in Kansas City off Minnesota Ave has the biggest selection.

    I'm pretty sure Cabelas sells minnows as well. I know they have goldfish. BPS doesnt have jack as far as bait goes. Worms is about it.

    In the southern area I'm pretty sure Browns is the only game in town, or at least thats the only place I could find when I lived down there.

    i35 and Gardner rd the gas station there sells minnows. Last week I paid for 2 dozen and got about 5 dozen and the remaining 20 are still alive in my bait tank over a week later.

    Thanks for the info, seemed like there weren't too many places. Appreciate the headsup about the gas station...I'll have to check that one out.

    There used to be a convenience store, Short Stop, on 83rd Street just off Metcalf than had minnows. They closed last year, and left a big gap in the area crappie minnow market.

    No they are not. Used to be my favorite bait shop. He would put a new eye on a pole for the cost of the eye. Thats where I bought my first big river rod the Berkley E-Cat #4. I sure miss that bait shop! :sad2:
