Emerald Shinners

Recommended Posts

Going up to LOW for first time. Going to Arnesen's who don't sell Emerald Shiners. Where is the best place for us to pick some Emerald's up on our way?

If your coming from the west thru Warroad the Holiday station and Riverside bait, a BP station both have 'em. If your coming from the east pretty much all the shops in Baudette have 'em. When in Baudette for bait I usually get mine from Howards Conoco, 5 bucks a scoop but you get a major scoop!

I saw in a store emerald shiners in a plastic bag about 2 lbs. worth. Anybody ever used them, if so should they be something to take up to Zipple next week?

Those shiners in a bag are beautiful aren't they. They

dont have any smell to them at all!!! If you needed the

bait for show maybe they would be ok but I threw them

all away after a couple of trips out because they just

didnt produce anything (even this fall on those 150 fish

days things would stop in a hurry when I put one on.

Beautiful, easy, no mess...no fish.

I may have been using them all wrong but they dont just

replace live or frozen shiners the way we use them on

LOW

Heading up today, can't wait to hit LOW again. Last year in Feb, it was -35 with -60 wind chill, that's almost 100 degrees warmer this weekend than last year when I was......gotta love MN weather.

Thanks for all the info. Sounds like going through Baudette there will be no issue finding some. Going up in a week for first time...I feel like a 4 year old asking his parents every 5 minutes are we there yet.

Every time I buy bait at Adrians it dies quickly. I';d suggest Log Cabin just down the road. However, my second trip out this year I stopped and got bait and it wasn't the same old guy at the desk. This fella mixed my chubs and shinners w/out asking me and thus I had about a half dozen survive the weekend, Chubs lasted fine though. Either way, Good Luck fishing.

I never have trouble with Adrians shiners, just got some last weekend and they made it the full weekend. That was until Sunday morning when Mr Walleye ate the last one.

You must be doing something wrong.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      Heard about these. Have done the cheeks but this ill have to try.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      Funny and it worked.  Say, how did you get out without Mommy and the kids?

      Welcome, Better Then Work!   Hope you and your Dad hit it hard up there, time with family is what life is all about. Make sure to post a report in the Rainy Lake thread. We want to see pictures too!

      Went up this morning. Taking the boat out in the morning on the 22 access I wont get out to far but it can be great for cats where the ice is.  lots of dead matter etc. we will see.

      Snow is definitely going down things are looking up! B season should be really good saw 3 strutter Toms this afternoon comeing home from fishing. 
    • IceHawk
      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell. 
    • IceHawk
      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell
