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!

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

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.

      Just got back, Warroad access is foot travel only two trucks broke thru on weds morn. Went to Spring Steel on weds it was drive out at your own risk they had a truck break thru tues. eve, I walked out in the little bay there maybe half mile out 7 hrs 1-flag-1-fish 34.5 at 230 that was it did get to see a truck break thru just one tire but they had alittle trouble getting out. Today walked out of Warroad did not need the auger found plenty of open holes. Fished till 100 no flags there were other people out and they were as busy as I was. By SS the ice was 2 feet  but the top foot is getting soft I seen atvs out . It was nice day on the lake yesterday I heard 66 in town also I had a critter attach it self to my sucker today that I did not know was in the lake, a lamprey. I hope this helps you guys be careful out there and good luck.  Stay Safe Good Luck   Bear55

      Andi and I made it out to a local river for a few hrs.... White suckers are running in force. We must have gotten 20 each.

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.
