What do you think will be available and what are you going to use? In the process of hunting down some spot-tailed shiners to pick up on the way up to Cass. We will use those during the day and troll some hard baits in the evening. 

Good of luck to all this weekend and be safe out there. Water is still pretty chilly for swimming!

Heard they were going to be hard to come by. MD Pawn in Cass Lake will have whatever minnow is available in the area. Give them a call.

Our group rarely uses minnows anymore first few weekends.   Pick up some 3-4" gulp minnows, rig on a jighead and never look back.  Black shad, emerald shiner and smelt have all been consistent producers.  Believe when I say it has taken some guys a long time to switch over but getting outfished 3:1 eventually got them to switch to the gulp.  Other, scented plastics like impulse works well too.  There's something about the scent and cold water rhat really triggers them to bite.

Add a good barrel swivel 1-2 feet above to cut down on line twist.

Heard from some locals at the Big Fish that no shiners up north. Said if you are on your way up from the metro to stop and buy from down there. Buy lots of ice! Or, if you have to get, a battery operated aerator and some ice.
