    Yes but demand far exceeds their ability to supply. We have one trapper in ND who does his best and one in MN who has never produced a sucker to the Grand Forks area. (Fargo maybe)

    Maybe it's time to get your own dealer license I used to haul bait to grand forks for Frederick bait when I lived in devils lake but he's getting older now maybe he quit getting suckers from Minnesota. Maybe he's just trapping minnows for the devils lake area. I know of two licensed dealers from eastern north Dakota. Yes I had a helpers card

    I have a vendor license but it does me not good to bring suckers from MN. I tried the trapping thing last year but just did not have the time to make it work.

    If you can possess suckers in the counties bordering the red and can buy suckers in MN and enter the red from that side, why not be able to bring suckers across the bridges as long as you remain in the counties bordering the red. seems bizarre to me.

    By the way, for those of you that are interested, read the wording in SB 2138. The bill states that wholesalers or vendors can import white suckers into ND if the bill passes, but it says nothing about the anglers taking them across the border themselves. You still couldn't go buy live suckers at a MN bait dealer and legally take them across the river.
    Is that just a coincidence?
    I don't think so.
    Who exactly would this bill benefit?

    Mr. Reddeviloutdoorsman, I know who you are and I know you take anything I do personally and now you are attacking me specifically. When I sat with the sponsoring legislator I flat out said that it was my wishes for any angler to buy suckers and be able to bring them over the border. I was advised that it would be best to limit it to the actual bait vendors. For the record I HAVE NO DESIRE TO SELL BAIT! I am doing to ease the supply issues on the catfishing community. I am doing it so I can keep my guide service supplied but also to ease the constant burden on Home of Economy and allow Scheels to finally get some suckers into their stores again. I am doing this so the people who fish league can find bait more easily on Wednesdays so people who visit our find communities to catch these catfish can find bait and enjoy the river. I know you want to pin this on me and my "personal gain" and yes there would be gain in terms of time saved but I will repeat. I HAVE NO DESIRE TO SELL BAIT!

    I never implied that you want to sell bait but you are trying to get support for this bill just to benefit your guide service with little regard for NDGF's attempt at trying to stop or at least delay the spread of ANS to a lake such as Devils Lake. NO aquatic bait across state lines means just that whether it be fatheads or suckers and I hope it stays that way.
