There are two bait shops in LaPorte that guys can use but I would recommend coming with your own bait.
Here are two that are in town:Gracies Bait Shop
-it's located on Pine Lake Ave pretty close to where our check in will be. BUT, they don't open til about 7:30am CST and their supply of bait is limited at times. http://maps.google.com/maps/place?oe=ut ... 9158502919Kasst Bait Shop
-it's located on Small Road, pretty close to the public boat ramp on Stone. This guy runs it out of his home and he has a good supply of bait. He opens at 5am, just ring the door bell. If you don't like cats this place is not for you!
