Fatheads or Shiners

Recommended Posts

Walleye One

We are heading up to Arnesens this weekend and trying to figure out if we should by some shiners in town before we get there. If so, what is a good bait shop in Baudette to pick some up? They supply fatheads.

Good luck on finding shiners right now. Probably won't find any around the metro anyway.

no kidding there are no shiners around anywhere, how about a difference between fatheads and say rainbow chubs, anyone having a better bite on either of those??

I am also heading to Arnesen's this weekend. If you see a guy drinking Miller Lite at the bar with an orange stocking cap, that will be me. Let me know if you want to hook up and share secrets.

walleye one- what kind of shiners are you talking about,silver, golden,or emerald? I'll take it you mean emerald shiners since you are going to LOTW. I was just in Baudette 10 days ago, at Lucky's Bait, and they had loads of emerald shiners, live and frozen, and they also had chubs. They were all out of golden shiners though. I would wait to buy emeralds in Baudette because they will die if you have a long drive. There is no way they are out of emerald shiners in Baudette, or at the resorts. Call up there and ask before you leave. Some of the gas stations, in Baudette, have emeralds also.

mid-december I was getting the bigger ones on goldies. a guy at another bait shop the next week told me he doesn't carry them because they never bite on goldies. up to a couple weeks ago i did descent on emeralds. now they want silvers. i wish the fish would make up their minds.

The shiner supply is very good and the end is not nearby.

After the live ones are all gone everybody will have frozen

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.
