Welcome to Portside Bait & Liquor on Mille Lacs Lake
Come to Portside where the service is friendly, the coffee is strong, and the fish tales are many – and where you’ll probably run into lots of other folks meeting and talking about what’s happening on Mille Lacs.
Portside has the largest selection and highest quality live bait in the area. Carrying Rainbows, Shiners, Fat Heads, Crappie and Sucker Minnows, as well as waxies, larva, night crawlers and leeches, we stock the live bait you need to be successful on the lake year round.
Located just North of downtown Isle, Portside Bait & Liquor is a “must stop” before heading out fishing. Stop in to pickup all of your fishing gear and supplies at our convenience store.

Panning for Fossils and Gemstones
Collecting gemstones and fossils is exciting for all ages. Each rock or fossil found has a different history and unique story to tell. Use what you discover in your mining rough bag to become an amateur geologist or paleontologist, and jumpstart your own collection. Presented by Portside Bait & Liquor and Cold River Mining
