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
