The only problem I can see with that is it's a week-long outpost cabin, so I'm not sure how we would keep the ice. Does just salting work?

I'd bring some crankbaits. Salt the suckers well and invest in a cooler that claims to hold ice for many days. If you freeze them after salting and keep them packed in ice inside a quality cooler until needed you should be gtg. Good luck.

If you salt those suckers, use plenty of salt and let them cure out. shift them around every day for 4 days in the salt. they will keep for more than a week if kept cool.

I do not believe they will let you bring frozen bait across the border. We salt our minnows - they ask if we have any live or frozen bait - we say no

I've taken salted/frozen fatheads on Canadian trips. I buy them by the gallon and then freeze them in smaller quantities...just enough to last 3-4 hrs fishing walleyes. Every time I leave camp, I throw a bag in a small cooler. That way them bulk of them stay better in the big cooler and last all week. What really sucks is handling salted bait when you've been fishing for 4 days and your hands are nicked up...stings just a bit.
