Hey everyone,


I live in Barrie and love to fish for perch out of kempenfelt bay, and love to fish out of the nottawasaga river too. my question is where is the best place to buy bait? i am always looking for bait, but have a hard time finding minnows, leeches, roe, etc  other than for way too much at Canadian tire. the worm vending machines in Barrie work well, but when they close in the fall i don't know where i can go to get bait without having to go to far. i also haven't seen the Rack N Reel in Barrie open for a long time. if anyone knows the best place to get some bait, especially roe and minnows for a pretty good price, that would be awesome!

rack n reel is done, you can get minnows at cannings, which is down at minets point..

as for roe, i buy mine online. worms, wait till it rains and spend half an hour, pick an easy 50.
