LOTW Shiners

Recommended Posts

Boss Hogg

Is there a problem, or is there going to be a problem getting shiners? I stopped at Log Cabin Bait last Wednesday and they were out, and didn't know if they were going to get any more. A couple of guys on the lake told me that nearly everybody was out, and future supplies didn't look good. Does anybody have any information on this?

I got shiners at border bait on saturday 1/27 that is located just north a block or so from log cabin. They were very generous (2 scoops should last you all weekend). I highly reccomend you stop by.

It looks like we have a couple of different veins going

at the same time.

First, the Shiners run out before winter does most years.

It's not unusual for the bait store supplies to dry up.

Second, there seems to be a question as to the future of

trapping and using Shiners as bait. A new invasion on

LOW thru the Rainy River and Rainy Lake and on eastward

to the Great Lakes and Ocean Going Ships to Europe (?)

seems to come to a head right here.

There is more information to get but for now, any lack

of Shiners is a normal occurance.

Probably two options for you, either Adrians or Border bait. We have always gotten our shiners from Adrians, I cant remember them ever running out, and I know Kim at Border Bait was still seining shiners when we were up in Nov. At that point in time I think he said he had about 650 gallons on hand so I am guessing he is set for the ice season.

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      This is great! I’ve never heard of this either Skunked, thanks for sharing- will give it a shot this summer!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
