Emerald Shinners

13 posts in this topic

Going up to LOW for first time. Going to Arnesen's who don't sell Emerald Shiners. Where is the best place for us to pick some Emerald's up on our way?

If your coming from the west thru Warroad the Holiday station and Riverside bait, a BP station both have 'em. If your coming from the east pretty much all the shops in Baudette have 'em. When in Baudette for bait I usually get mine from Howards Conoco, 5 bucks a scoop but you get a major scoop!

Thanks. I guess 1 week from today I'll be buying a few scoops from Adrians then. Woot!

I saw in a store emerald shiners in a plastic bag about 2 lbs. worth. Anybody ever used them, if so should they be something to take up to Zipple next week?

Those shiners in a bag are beautiful aren't they. They

dont have any smell to them at all!!! If you needed the

bait for show maybe they would be ok but I threw them

all away after a couple of trips out because they just

didnt produce anything (even this fall on those 150 fish

days things would stop in a hurry when I put one on.

Beautiful, easy, no mess...no fish.

I may have been using them all wrong but they dont just

replace live or frozen shiners the way we use them on

LOW

I too will be there in 1 week, can't wait. Last year we got there the same time the cold weather did, -29. I am hoping for better this year.

Heading up today, can't wait to hit LOW again. Last year in Feb, it was -35 with -60 wind chill, that's almost 100 degrees warmer this weekend than last year when I was......gotta love MN weather.

Thanks for all the info. Sounds like going through Baudette there will be no issue finding some. Going up in a week for first time...I feel like a 4 year old asking his parents every 5 minutes are we there yet.

Every time I buy bait at Adrians it dies quickly. I';d suggest Log Cabin just down the road. However, my second trip out this year I stopped and got bait and it wasn't the same old guy at the desk. This fella mixed my chubs and shinners w/out asking me and thus I had about a half dozen survive the weekend, Chubs lasted fine though. Either way, Good Luck fishing.

I never have trouble with Adrians shiners, just got some last weekend and they made it the full weekend. That was until Sunday morning when Mr Walleye ate the last one.

You must be doing something wrong.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
