Hmmm, live bait vending machines have been around here in eastern Missouri for quite some time now...

The first I saw was back in the early '80's at the August A Busch Wildlife Area...

Some clever fellow working for the Department of Natural Resources had modified an old Coke vending machine to sell people bait worms in capped styrofoam cups...

Now you can buy a variety of both live bait, lures, line, and sinkers from the newer more sophisticated machines they have out at the same place...

"1" went for this hook, line and sinker. I am not taking the bait.
There is guy behind the wall that looks like Larry the Cable Guy putting worms in recycled chinese restaurant takeout cartons for the customers.

Ha! ha!

Excellent gettingrational!

That really struck me as funny...

Thanks...

Well as long as the guy that might look like Larry the Cable Guy doesn't come from behind the wall wearing nothing but Speedos with suspenders then its still O.K.

I've seen this in Michigan (a gas station/convenience store in Charlotte used to have one)as well.

Finally, some real signs of progress.
