Better bring worms from home

Red Lake bait dealers are angry and frustrated at the quality of nightcrawlers sent them by suppliers this summer. Anglers are returning flats of 500 crawlers because the worms are either dead or in poor condition. In some cases the dealers simply have no crawlers at all, even for orders placed last winter. There have also been concerns with leeches.
Until the supply problem is rectified our advice is to bring worms from home. You can bring worms across the border if they are packed in bedding but not dirt. You cannot bring leeches or minnows across the border.
Leeches might best be purchased as soon as you cross the border.
There is no problem with minnows.
