Trapping your own minnows

Recommended Posts

Capt'nJosh

Are there restrictions on where you can and can't trap minnows? I used to help my grampa trap them back in South Dakota when I was a kid, but haven't tried since. We used to put chunks of bread in the trap to bait in the bait! Does anyone have any tip/tricks/techniques to offer?

Most designated trout streams are off limits to minnow trapping unless you can get a special permit.
Your traps must also have a tag with your name and address on them.
Bread works ok as bait . Dry dog food also works, and I have caught them using styrofoam packing peanuts in the trap as an attractor.

Hey Josh
I do a lot of trapping and would't mind showing you how I go about it.I also seine minnows and could use a hand with the net.Since we are in the same general area maybee we should get together for some splasing around in the creeks.The only problem is that fresh lively wild minnows was going to be the card up my sleave for LETS smile.gif

      Is there a public access on the lake? I see it is stocked so Im guessing it must be a public lake. Would like to try and fish for lakers through the ice..

      Here's another issue can't play this video: 23 minutes ago, curt quesnell said: Mid January rolls in and fishing remains pretty good on LOTW.  Shot this video Monday. Last round of snow added a million pillow drifts of a foot or two tall.  Off road travel is possible but not like it was last week .NCOR MLK Day Report.mp4     Sorry, there is a problem We could not locate the item you are trying to view.

      I would like to fish walleye and crappies, very new to this as it has been many years since I have ice fished! Using Ice Castle so not as mobile as a person could be with a portable fish house. Appreciate any feedback, Thanks!

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.
