STAYING ON HOUSEBOAT MID JUNE ON KABE WITH 10 PEOPLE.
LOOKING AT KEEPING A 3 TO 4 DAY SUPPLY OF WALLEYE MINNOWS ON BOARD TO SAVE ON TRIPS IN. WAS THINKING OF AIRATING 60 QT COOLER AND ADDING ICE PERIODILY. ANYBODY TRY THIS OR HAVE ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS. WE HAVE LIVE WELLS ON OUR OTHER RENTALS BUT WAS TOLD THEY WONT KEEP.

THANKS

We bring a seperate aerated bags for each day. The unopened bags should be keep cool enough to keep the minnow dormant in a big igloo cooler. First thing in the morning, float that days bag in the water to acclimate the minnows to your bait bucket/well and you are good to go for the day.

I always buy my bait at a place called Cold Springs. Its on hwy 53 about 3 miles from where you turn off onto the Ash River Trail to get to Ebels. They will oxygen bag them for you. I would just transfer the minnows into several buckets and keep them in the water after I get to your camp site. Be sure and tie the lid tight on the buckets at the camp site or you may lose your bait to the Otters.

We go out of Ebel's as well but they don't have much for bait. We get ours near the Twin Cities as we are driving up. Our secret is keeping everyone from checking and rechecking the minnow coolers. If you are headed up with 10 houseboating, fishin' fool newbies, you are in for quite a treat. Party barge to fishin'ville. Next stop, 26 scenic miles of BIG WATER!!! Make sure you post a report upon your return.

Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach him to fish and he'll sit in the boat and drink beer.
