Just a heads-up: For all you anglers who don’t typically fish in FRESHWATER, you should note that MOST FRESH BAIT is now unacceptable in freshwater lakes & streams, due to contamination issues with alien species. In Michigan, it is illegal to use live bait, unless it came from the same waters you are fishing. Same restrictions apply to felt-soled boots.
