Dont count on him opening on time, it has been my experience that at least on weekends he is a sleepy fella, best to get your bait the night before.Thanks very much for the quick responses SmallieKing and harrison08! I was searching on "fishing bait" and an old Colony Bait and Tackle came up but the phone number was disconnected. I guess it is called "Colony Food Mart" now? I just called and they have minnows. Nice!
