Buying Bait


Please note no live bait can be brought across the border at this time. Therefore please plan to buy your night crawlers along the way to us on the Canadian side or in Chapleau.

Night Crawlers (dew worms) are the most effective live bait here for walleyes and for perch. In our experience, crawlers work as well or better in our chain of lakes than any other live bait. Click here for more fishing tips.

Night-crawlers, tackle and lures are available at the Collins Home Hardware Store in the main business block in downtown Chapleau. Store hours are 7:30 to 5:00 Monday to Saturday. Tel: 705-864-1030. For a flat of worms call ahead and they will have it ready for you.

Night-crawlers and minnows are also available at the 101 Gas Station and Trading Post just outside Chapleau. Here is how to get there: At the southern edge of Chapleau is the junction of Hwy. 101 East which heads towards Timmins. Drive along it about three minutes and you will see the gas station on your right. There you can also buy minnows and an entire flat of worms. Tel: 705-864-0330.

Along the road between Sault Ste. Marie and Chapleau at HiWay Variety Outfitters in Sault Ste. Marie.

In Bruce Mines, along the road between Sault Ste. Marie and Chapleau at Jerry's Live Bait and Rock Shop, 1672 Centre Line Road.
