DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Despite the long, cold winter, bait shops should be well stocked this weekend for Minnesota's fishing opener Saturday, May 11.

Night crawlers, leeches and crappie minnows are all in stock at bait shops near Detroit Lakes.

Spot-tail minnows may be in short supply, however. Lakes Country bait shops have some available, but store owners say supplies are limited, so it may be a good idea to buy bait early.
