You're going to need worms, minnows, tackle, your fishing poles and a net when you vacation. Here's a quick list of the closest "bait" shops from the resort. Top O' Lake Sport Shop in Manistique, 1-906-341-5241 https://www.facebook.com/Top-O-Lake-Sport-Shop-145234448939436/ Linda's Bread Box and Sporting Goods, 1-906-644-2284 https://www.facebook.com/lindasbreadboxandsportinggoods/ Bay View Bait & Tackle, Gladstone (on the lake side, just past Escanaba), 1-906-786-1488 https://www.facebook.com/Bay-View-Bait-Tackle-211237655592400/ Forest Glen General Store, 1-906-573-2655 https://www.facebook.com/pages/Forest-Glen-General-Store/153386224671496 Midway General Store, 1-906-573-2450 https://www.facebook.com/pages/Midway-General-Store/124827110898405 Midway is the closest to the resort and Forest Glen is just past Midway. If you're coming from the east, stop in Manistique at Top O' Lake. If you run out mid week and you happen to go to Big Spring (Kitch-iti-Kipi) for an afternoon to check that out, Linda's Bread Box would be the closest to you at that point. Traveling from Iowa, Wisconsin or Illinois? Bay View will be your best bet. These places only have Facebook pages, no websites. I feel like a broken record, but note to our guests.....come here to the forum and post pictures of your "catch" and the bait you used!
