How many sucker minnows in a gallon?

Recommended Posts

Ebiz

Question - heading up north this weekend and am planning on fishing with small suckers (around 4") Was wondering how many dozen that would be if I bought a gallon?

Woodland

Light Pike are about 56 dozen in a gallon.

Heavy Pike are about 34 dozen in a gallon.

Does that help at all?

I believe woodlands numbers are a bit high. There should be around 26 dozen in the 4 inch range.

I was guessing somewhere around 25 dozen as well. I've called around to a bunch of bait stores from here to Ely and asked approximately how many 4" small suckers to a gallon. Have received answers ranging between 12 and 85 dozen so I thought I'd post it on here for clarification.

We have four guys going up for four days - at 12 dozen that would only be 3 dozen minnows each total for the whole trip, on the other end 85 dozen would be over 20 dozen each, obviously too much.

Just fish plastics and don't worry about it. Each plastic minnow will catch multiple fish.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
