Cabela's shiners??

Recommended Posts

Lindyrig81

Bought some gigantic shiners at rogers cabelas, nice big shiny gold, with a blue back... Bait doesnt usually excite me, but this were some hot looking minnows... Wasnt to sure about the large size, but it turned out that- those were the only minnows out of a wide aray of choices that got hit.. I hear they are river shiners? I dont know, im going back to get more though!

River shiners tend to be a darker color and in my experience they are much more active under the water. My bobber is always going crazy when I've used river shiners

I've only seen golden or silver shiners...are river shiners advertised as such or do you just have to keep your fingers crossed and hope that the aforementioned shiners came from a river? I've bought lot's of golden shiners recently and they're all still alive (not just because I haven't caught any fish either)...must be from a river?

I believe river shinners are more common up north for some reason. I thought they were lighter in color and longer. Yes, from what I've heard about them they do live better.

I bought the same shiners from the same store in Rogers. I put them out on tip ups and pulled in a 15 pound northern through the ice.

I too would use them again.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.

      Get a set of choppers to put over your nice gloves.  I throw choppers over my regular gloves when the bite gets slow.  Works like a charm.
