You can usually find Sticklebacks at your local bait shop. If he doesn't
have them leave your name and number and ask him to call you when he
gets some. They are frequently mixed in with fatheads and other bait
fish. They are happy to get rid of them as they make terrible bait.
He'll probably sell them to you cheap, if not give them to you for free.
Where in WI are you located? I am in Waterford, which is in the SE
portion of the state. I own both a bait and tackle shop as well as a pet
