Three days and we will be there we can't wait. Hearing that gold is the color right now. Is there anything else we should know before we head that way? What about shiners can we find those up that way?

We found tight to the bottom was key 2" off is all we were had to watch bobber close when it went to bottom set the hook I didn't have any luck on the suspended ones some looked for a while but not one hit it. Will keep trying though cause a buddy got a 29.5" reeling up to one last year.fatheads worked for us good luck

We just returned from a great trip from the bay and had great success with live shiners on a plain red or blue hook. I was also able to jig up several with a gold tear drop jig tipped with either a live or dead shiner. Live shiners can be bought in Baudette at the Lucky Bait shop just before town.

how much does lucky charge? i bet he counts them also.thats why we dont go there anymore.fatheads worked great for us.i bought some frozen shiners just to use the heads for our jigging stick but most of our fish came off the dead stick.

Master, you should be able to get shiners at Adrians if you don't have any then you get here.

Chris. Bait price does become an issue when you have different people coming up every weekend using your house, bait, propane, ect. Maybe it isn't a big deal for you, but don't assume everyone has your cash to burn.

price on minnows does matter.the last time i went to luckys he charged me $13 for 2 scoops = 24 minnows.i rather spend the 8 bucks on 2 scoops of chubs = many dozen and spend my extra $5 at the bar in the resort.money isnt a problem for me i come there 14 times a season.just dont like getting ripped off is all.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      Good luck and many the ducks fall after you shoot!!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
