Minnows-Shinners

10 posts in this topic

Shinners are in very small quanity in Baudette. There were going at 5 bucks for 15 minnows last weekend. I would check in Grand Rapids or Deer River, if you're heading up there antime soon.

I like the 24/24 idea!! Maybe its a minnow conspiricy, they say there are only a few so they jack up the price kinda like gas prices? Sounds familiar confused.gif :confused

Let's be honest, have you ever heard someone in a bait shop say "Yeah, we have lots of big shiners so we dropped the price for a few weeks."

Go see Steve at Log Cabin Bait right out on Wheelers. He usually has them and his scoops are pretty darn generous. Adrians resort will have them too.

I was up there last week and Adrians Resort had plenty of shiner and they were a pretty good quantity for $7.50 if you use their containers. If you use your own container I think they are even a little cheaper.

Have a great trip and good luck. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours.

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .

      oops - duplicate post.

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).

      Also noticed or heard you say your using 4 lb. test line. Is that correct?? We used 10-12 mono and 15  flouro.  We sure love this lake. Can't sleep for next three weeks waiting to head up there LOL
