Minnow Shortage?

5 posts in this topic

I heard through the grapevine that we can expect a major minnow shortage coming soon. This was said to be due to too much snow on the netting ponds, and stricter enforcement of the interstate transportation of minnows. I have no idea how valid this claim is, but was wondering if anyone else had heard this.

I got some fatheads at holiday this morning and they were the biggest fatheads I have ever seen 3-4".

I know that the interstate ban will hurt size of shiners as the big ones were from Arkansas at my local bait store. Now were have very small ones for $8.00 a dozen confused.gif

I was out last Saturday with Maximum12, and we both commented on how small the shiners were compared to the ones we were getting last year. No good...

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.

      I'll bet this lure will get a lot of bites! It may even catch a few fish! Does look interesting. Cliff
