How many sucker minnows in a gallon?

9 posts in this topic

Question - heading up north this weekend and am planning on fishing with small suckers (around 4") Was wondering how many dozen that would be if I bought a gallon?

Light Pike are about 56 dozen in a gallon.

Heavy Pike are about 34 dozen in a gallon.

Does that help at all?

I believe woodlands numbers are a bit high. There should be around 26 dozen in the 4 inch range.

I was guessing somewhere around 25 dozen as well. I've called around to a bunch of bait stores from here to Ely and asked approximately how many 4" small suckers to a gallon. Have received answers ranging between 12 and 85 dozen so I thought I'd post it on here for clarification.

We have four guys going up for four days - at 12 dozen that would only be 3 dozen minnows each total for the whole trip, on the other end 85 dozen would be over 20 dozen each, obviously too much.

Just fish plastics and don't worry about it. Each plastic minnow will catch multiple fish.

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.
