chris63> The resort I fish out of provides all the fathead minnows we can go through. I always stop at Log Cabin bait and pick up shiners as well. Some days the fats outfish the shiners and vice versa, I just want to have both options available to me. Good luck and hang on Bill

For me it is river shiners as our choice, however, we also bring an assortment and see what works. I did get a 28" walleye on a small crappie minnow.

I'm from South Dakota, and I'm bringing up some night crawlers next weekend. I'll let you know how that goes.

Get some of each. Fatheads, shiners, & rosies (if you can find em). You never know what they want that day.

Don't stop 5 bucks short of a good fishin' trip!

Chubs were the minnow of desire for the fish this weekend out of long point. I think this time of year towards spring they like a minnow with a little more meat an scent, i dont know, its what ever they want at the time they want to bite. Today i caught to nice eye's back to back with a chub, then grabed a shinner an nothing till I put on a chub an then bamm, Kowalleski. boar

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
