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

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
