The Causeway bait shop is definitely open. He's the only who lasted through the last two seasons. I was there last weekend and he told me how the fishing was, and what they were catching. He is open 24 hours and he runs it pretty much by himself (his daughter helps out). He doesn't get to fish (he is always open), so he only knows what he is being told. Not the same as Dave, but he is trying to make a living at it. Until he gets busier, please cut him some slack. If he goes, there's no one left on Scugog. Even the native one on the island closed last year.

Most bait store owners do not tell you anything much about ice or where to fish. Maybe just general info but I've never had anyone say anything definite about conditions. Sounds like Dave went the extra mile and had loyal customers but even he wanted out. Luckily you don't need minnows to catch fish. Power baits on a plain jig worked pretty well last time out for us.

Causeway is open 24 hrs. When I buy pinheads it's $6 per scoop. Probably 3 or 4 dozen. The fellow is courteous and accommodating.
Cut him some slack!

If I remember correctly, this guy has a sign saying $10 minimum purchase or something along those lines.

Purchased bait many time from this place never had an issue. Like they say you can never keep everyone happy. Tight lines.

A scoop of Pinheads is $6. I buy them every weekend. The minimum charge is for after hours (if you show up at 3 am, there will be a minimum). He was low today, so he only had mixed pinheads and shad). New product arriving tomorrow.

Ice is pretty solid (12 - 14 inches), but snow covered, so walking is a challenge. At least the dinks were biting today, caught a jumbo and another one that was keepable.

Even though I am here every weekend, I never asked him his name. I'll try and remember for next weekend. He seems like a nice enough guy.
