Re: where to buy minnows in the Loveland area
Yes, there are no tanks where you can see them, they are in back and you need to ask at the gun counter if there are no employees floating around in fishing.
If you want to see what you are getting you can ask to go back with them, this seems to differ based on the employee.
One funny thing, I bought 3 dozen fat heads and I'm pretty sure he pulled them out one at a time until there were exactly 36. I may have even been a few shy.
Contrast that to Betty's today when I bought four dozen and after an afternoon of fishing I probably still have 50 minnows in the bucket.
If the Loveland Jax is out, Bennet's in Berthoud is the next closest, but if you WERE heading north you could get minnows at either JAX in Fort Collins, or just a few blocks up get a whole mess at Betty's. Betty's seems to have better info on the bite, Jax is hit-or-miss depending on who is at the counter.
