It doesn't answer your question but from where are you heading?

I haven't been for a couple years but used to get them from Westside Sporting goods in Malta. Also If you are coming through Havre they have them at Reds Auto Parts and the Sinclair on the east side of town.

Westside is the only minnow provider as far as I know.  Arlen Rammel had been selling minnows up until 2016 but he stopped.  The Buffalo at the lake quit selling around 2010.  It's best to contact Westside prior to heading there to make sure they have an adequate supply.  Often times they're limited to tiny minnows which are useless for tip-ups.

We were up there last week. Jim at Westside was singing the blues about minnows. Better get them somewhere else.
