Red Tail Chubs/Rainbow Shiners

6 posts in this topic

Anyone know where I can find some redtail's here in the cities?

I found Rainbow's at Blue Ribbon...

Do they work the same?

i haven't ever seen red tails in the metro, but i have seen them up north.

where do plan on fishing with them at? i bought an 8 dollar minnow trap and catch tons of rainbow shiners on the mississippi. but, you can only use them as bait on the water where you trap them. if you are planning on fishing a river, i suggest buying a trap. after two or three trips you will have saved money as a scoop of minnows goes for about 3-4 bucks at most places.

You should be able to find redtails at Vados in Spring Lake Park.

Johhny,

I think (and could be wrong) but as long as they are legal minnow size, you can bring them to any lake as long as you change the water from the lake or river you caught them in to well water!

Blue Ribbon in Oakdale had them earlier this year, been a month since I've been in there though.

      Another beautiful day on the ice Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy Scott got a couple of nice ones- a 28" and a 29".

      Are you saying people with better reports are being dishonest?

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.
