Minnow Traps

3 posts in this topic

Does anybody know of a good minnow trap or any other good way to catch minnows. I've thrown out the cheap Frabill trap with some bread in it but it hasn't fooled any minnows yet.

Thanks for any help.

i get in the water and get a seine out start walking then close it off and lift it up and most of the time i get a couple to keep, one time i got some fatheads that was fun, make sure you get the smaller ones in the water asap or they will die

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
