Emerald Shiners?

13 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if I can get them at URL or Grand Rapids on my way up to URL this weekend?

Last weekend Froggys sports in Cass Lake said they were getting some in. I don't know if they arrived or not but that's what the gal told me.

I thought I heard something about a Deer River bait shop carrying them. I can't personally confirm that however.

I did try Emeralds 2 weekends ago on URL and the walleyes sure seamed to love them, crappies on the other hand, not so much.

With my experience last weekend, I still believe that location, location, location is more important than any type of bait selection. When you work to find active fish, they will hit anything.

Sorry this is off the subject, End of the Line if you see a guy up there this weekend with a white Tundra staring at your ice mansion for a long time that would be me. I saw the pics and I'd like to see the real thing.

West Wind had them last time I was up in early Febuary.

We caught all of our crappies (6) on them and a bunch of eyes too.

Maybe give them a call to make sure.

I saw some packaged at Gander Mtn in Woodbury last night. Not sure what the technique used is but they look plenty natural. Just wondering if anyone tried something like this. Looked like 3 dozen or so for $9.00. Once you open the pkg I think they will be toast so it may not be that great of an idea. Any thoughts?? Especially if they are hard to find live.

MJ,

Stop by if you see the house anytime. I think we'll be off Hillman's, but to be determined alittle later tonight. My name is on the house and I have a white Chevy 2500 crew cab.

I got them the last few times in deer river, Fred's on west side of town i think it was. Boy did they love those guys. Next time I think I will see if some river shiners will work too; they look identical.

West Wind does have them. The walleyes love them and when the crappies are hungry they will bite on anything.

Thanks guys. I am leaving Duluth area around 7am. I will be off Hillman's Road for those that want to stop by and check out the shack. Might make it in for Roll call at noon on Sat, but we'll see. wink.gif There is an "End of the Line" decal right by the door.

Thanks for the hospitality, I was looking but didn't see you. Maybe next year.

      Snuffy's Landing area on the Mississippi just North of Becker has always be good. Otherwise the Elk river hold some nice ones.

      My trophy would be the walleye, mainly because it is what I target but I have to admit hooking a 21" small mouth would be a fun battle.

      So I saw this question posed elsewhere, and thought it was a fun one to get people talking as we wait for open water season.   Which trophy fish do you have on Vermilion?  Which do you want the most?  And why?   A- 30" Walleye B- 21" Smallie C- 40" Pike D- 50" Muskie   My goal is a 21"+ smallie.  I got a 20.5" last summer, which is 1/2" shy of Master Angler quality in Minnesota.  Why?  Because I can't get so close and not ultimately achieve the goal.  The 21" smallie on Vermilion is now my white whale.

      Looking for an unforgettable outdoor adventure this summer? Sign up for one of the I Can! programs offered by Minnesota state parks and trails.   Reservations are being taken for the following beginner-level programs, which start in June and continue through the end of August: I Can Camp! – Develop (or brush up on) fire-starting and camp cooking skills and sleep on air mattresses in tents large enough to accommodate two adults and up to three children ($60 for one-night programs or $85 for two-night programs). I Can Paddle! – Get out on the water for a guided canoeing, kayaking or sea kayaking adventure (prices vary).  I Can Climb! – Experience the thrill of rock climbing with instruction provided by trained professionals from Vertical Endeavors Guided Adventures ($10/child, $20/adult).  I Can Mountain Bike! – Learn riding techniques and explore mountain bike trails with guides from the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Club ($15/child, $25/adult).  I Can Fish! – Kids will have fun of casting into the water and enjoying the excitement when there’s a tug on the line. ($5/person, children under 12 are free). The I Can! series also includes the Archery in the Parks program, which is free and for which no reservations are needed. “Not having the right equipment or know-how can be a barrier to spending time outdoors,” said Erika Rivers, director of Minnesota state parks and trails. “The I Can! programs make it easy for families to enjoy camping and other outdoor experiences by providing tents, canoes, mountain bikes and other gear. Friendly instructors also provide plenty of tips and encouragement so that adults and kids can both have fun learning new skills.” Registration and more information For more information including program dates, times, locations, and minimum age requirements—visit www.mndnr.gov/ican or contact the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday).
