Yeah MO I was up there right around the Christmas and he was open with plenty of bait.  He had some other stuff too...and some other stuff that was there since the 60's.  Nice guy and the only shop around tho!

Well then that's a second close option to O'Donnell's.  Too bad the old timer on 528 passed... I miss his close bait shop.

We had 2 out of the 3 bait shops in Beaver Co. closed recently.   Im sure it's hard to make a buck.

Tackle shops near me are struggling too.  A few have closed.  One "doesn't carry maggots".  I checked another and it's under new ownership.  He left his maggots at room temp and lost 90% of his order.  After a while we caved and ordered bait online.  Sigh...

If youre in the Muddy Creek area, the beer distro in Forrestville on Rt. 8 sells spikes, waxies, crawlers, maybe other things as well.  They're open often.

You can buy bugs online... but I doubt you can buy affordable live minnows.

I would give that a try for minnows. I order a bag or two of spikes from ja da bait each winter. A bag of 1000 is $23.  Keeps in the fridge all winter.
