Certified Bait Dealers

Using a certified bait dealer gives you the peace of mind that your favorite live bait is certified disease-free, and doesn’t contribute to the aquatic nuisance species problem.

You can buy and use bait from a permitted commercial bait dealer anywhere in the state, but you must keep the purchase receipt with you while fishing.
