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 crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
