STAYING ON HOUSEBOAT MID JUNE ON KABE WITH 10 PEOPLE.
LOOKING AT KEEPING A 3 TO 4 DAY SUPPLY OF WALLEYE MINNOWS ON BOARD TO SAVE ON TRIPS IN. WAS THINKING OF AIRATING 60 QT COOLER AND ADDING ICE PERIODILY. ANYBODY TRY THIS OR HAVE ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS. WE HAVE LIVE WELLS ON OUR OTHER RENTALS BUT WAS TOLD THEY WONT KEEP.

THANKS

We bring a seperate aerated bags for each day. The unopened bags should be keep cool enough to keep the minnow dormant in a big igloo cooler. First thing in the morning, float that days bag in the water to acclimate the minnows to your bait bucket/well and you are good to go for the day.

Hey Slayer
Is that done at local bait shops out there? If so we are Departing from Ebels in Sullivan Bay can you recomend a place out there. Thanks for the info.

Good fishing to you.

I always buy my bait at a place called Cold Springs. Its on hwy 53 about 3 miles from where you turn off onto the Ash River Trail to get to Ebels. They will oxygen bag them for you. I would just transfer the minnows into several buckets and keep them in the water after I get to your camp site. Be sure and tie the lid tight on the buckets at the camp site or you may lose your bait to the Otters.

We go out of Ebel's as well but they don't have much for bait. We get ours near the Twin Cities as we are driving up. Our secret is keeping everyone from checking and rechecking the minnow coolers. If you are headed up with 10 houseboating, fishin' fool newbies, you are in for quite a treat. Party barge to fishin'ville. Next stop, 26 scenic miles of BIG WATER!!! Make sure you post a report upon your return.

Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach him to fish and he'll sit in the boat and drink beer.

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
