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

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
