We will be fishing the Gateway Tournament on August 29, and we would like to find info. on where to find skip jack, shad or other baits for blues. We would prefer to buy bait in Festus or Crystal City but would be willing to stop along the way from Dubuque,Iowa. Can we catch shad in the Crystal City area? Please call me-563-552-2525 in the evening or I will try to check this site. I'm not on the computer that much, so wait for my reply, or reverse the phone charges if you call.
