About Us

We have been in the live bait business since 1949 when Earl Buchner founded the company in the small town of Interlochen, MI where we are still located. We handle all kinds of live bait in season and we are WHOLESALE ONLY. We handle pike suckers, greys, walleye suckers, blues, perch minnows, waxworms, spikes, wigglers(mayfly larve), styrofoam minnow buckets, Baitmaster canadian nightcrawlers, curly's green and garlic crawlers, leafworms, leeches, spawn(single egg, spawn sacs, and skein), Hali Jigging lures and better bait products to keep your minnows lively.

I know where the fish are biting.
This page is dedicated to our great retailers who supply live bait to the fishermen and point them the right way with gear and info.
We hope this Web site inspires more fishermen to fish beautiful Lower Michigan and the Upper Peninsula and to do business with our great retail customers who are ready to serve you. Buc’s Fishing Report will show you where the fish are and what kind of fish are biting. We will list where the businesses are located and what each business has to offer. Also, Buc’s Fishing Report will have ice conditions

Probably taking drugs judging from how he looks

Cleaned out of what?

Best I can do

Does he not know he's on camera?

Painter look at his pants

Kinda looks like the guy that lives behind me

Way he’s pulled in he’s coming from benzie area. Won’t be long and you will get his worthless ass. This one needs to be prosecuted

What is he taking .if its bait go cruse the fishing holes

Home boy needs an ass whopping

What a prick!

Stake out

Why is your stuff out in the open?

This is terrible, and sad! I can't ever fathem how people can do this. True sportsmen would not take! I love buying bait from here, best stuff around! Not to mention it's cheaper than most places...

It’s an honor system put the money in the STEEL BOX!

Stupid a hole looks directly into camera...

He must pull forward to leave. Post that video. It should be pretty easy to zoom in a get a plate picture.

Shared hope the dude has something bad happen to him.

Post some pics of him at the box

I've been painting for 19 years and just did a text blast to some friends. One of them said it looks a lot like a guy named Mike that lived or still lives in mancelona. I'll keep asking around, I hate scum like this guy.

Must be a painter look at his pants sherwinn Williams pants

Who do I message if I think I found the guy? I don't want to put pictures up if it's not him.

Don’t these idiots realize they’re on camera?


Dirt bag

Yeah a loser 😡

Can you get the license plate as they drive away?

Damn good camera and he’s a douch bag worthless thief. Wow

What's he stealing??

I'll be looking for him. I'm sick of these people stealing from this place!! They don't deserve to fish

People just don't understand how convenient this bait store is! I'll keep my eyes out for this asshole!!

POS. Hope they got his plate on that camera. If not I hope they move or add one that would.

Turn it into the cops

Close up

I hope he is identified and has to pay restitution. This bait stand is very convenient for me and I would hate to lose this service. Bucs deserves better than being taken advantage of. Thank you Bucs for continuing to help fisherman like me that enjoy your convenience stand to get out fishing quickly after working hard all day.

At least you got a great shot of the guy and his car. Criminals that steal fishing stuff from a 24-hr self-serve typically aren't sharpshooters.

nope but hes going fishing


So do you like just leave money in a bucket ? How does this work? My local bait shop has a vending machine. And yes there is no honor these days. POS

Bucs is the only place I go to get my bait! Hope this worthless asshole doesnt ruin it for the rest of us honest people..

What a pos I love this place and for someone to do this really pisses me off, I hope he gets caught

Got him!

You need to hang out there around times he shows up. Watch from inside then walk out and confront him or at least get a plate number.

The camera should get his plate # as he pulls out

He’s from ludington. He introduced himself the other day fishing the boardmen river. He was with his wife and kid and another guy with a huskie

This guy doesn't even know what he grabbed worthless piece of s*** if I knew him I would throw his ass to the dogs.
