    Default Whitefish

    Anyone know where one can buy whitefish for bait? I've tried Sportsman's Warehouse but they're sold out.

    As far as i know sportsmans has never carried whitefish.... I may be mistaken, but if someone there told you they are sold out I think they were full of it. Best way to get whitefish is catch em yerself. Small flies, crappie jigs, and small hooks with single salmon eggs catch em in most parks streams in late summer.

    SW does carry whitefish, but it is rare that they have it in stock.

    Call Alaska Bait.

    Thanks for the AK Bait tip. Talked to AK Bait today. Last three stores they stocked with the last of what they expect to get this year were SW Anchorage, Wasilla, and Fairbanks. Looks like I might be out of luck this year.
