Headed up to the mayo reservoir in mid October for a lake-side campsite camping/fishing trip! Was wondering if there's a bait shop in the area that sells live bait? Only been up there once and cant remember if that place on the corner of neal's store road sells minnows or not. thanks

Z & J does sell minnows, worms & crickets, or did last year. They don't have a lot of tackle but most of what the do have works in the immediate area. It is a bar and the time of day you go in makes a difference in the quality of service you get(which has never been stellar for me).
Wally World in Roxboro has more tackle. There's also a store on the corner of 49 & Neil's Store rd that carries a little tackle and "live bait". It's on the way to the WRC Ramp on Mayo.

I know the store your talking about. Thats right where my campground is too! Couldn't remember the name or if they sold minnows there? You have a phone # for that store?
