Ask anglers where minnows come from and they’ll likely say the bait store. But odds are the bait in your bucket went through Ron Meuwissen’s pole barn. “They’re gonna work hard or die trying,” Meuwissen said. “That’s what they say in the bait store.” Ron’s dad started Ken’s Bait Service back in 1950. It’s been supplying bait stores ever since.
Minnesota’s fishing opener is only a week away, and Wisconsin’s starts in just a few hours — but anglers may have a hard time finding the bait they want to use.
