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.

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
