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...

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
