Hulk,
I have never had much luck with goldenrod grubs, finding enough or catching fish with them. What's the trick?

We always left them in the gall til we needed them. I haven't used them in years but they woked well on panfish back then.

The biggest problem I have had with that system is about 2/3rds of the gall's I choose don't have a grub in them. I have to bring a whole bag full with me just to get one or two grubs. Must be I don't know how to pick um.

When picking carefully inspect the gall looking for any signs of a hole. If one is present then the grub has burroughed out. I always opened then up and stored them like waxworms. They work well for panfish. When I was a young lad and short on cash I often used these for icefishing. They are small and round and don't hold up as well as the waxworms but thy're free grin.gif.

Good Luck!

Here's what I do and how I use them. First cut all of them and get the worst part done with. Then (I learned this from my dad who was a hardcore sunny fisherman)you store them in the freezer. When you want some you just take out what you figure you will use and BOIL them. At first when you take them out they will look all shriveled up and discolored but trust me they will turn snow white after they are boiled. Now just put them on a paper towel and roll them around lightly to dry them off.This also toughens them up (boiling that is). Now just put them on a hook behind a waxie and its lip rippin time. I have been doing this since I was a youngster and it works excellent! Give it a try!! You will be glad you did!!

    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
    • So are you saying what happened to me did not happen ? We not talking about a 4 inch concrete slab , it is a thin layer of gyp crete that covers the pex , it has the consistency of water when poured and sets up fast, it is self leveling and any movement in the pex shows up and cant be undone . Yes if it was fastened continuously it could not move but that would be ridiculous . As so this discussion !  
    •   Just like all the other teams do. He gets the same shot over and over against every team. Not sure how you let a guy with 18 power play goals float like that. Doesn't hurt Bakstrom is setting it all up. You leave him and just cover Ovi and he will light you up.
    • Good looking driveway always enhances the value of the home and attract friends and neighbors. Nowadays, the commonly used paving materials are concrete slabs and paving stones. Concrete slabs are easy to install, but the material takes a time to dry and cure. Whereas, paving stone installation are ready to use immediately upon completion. Like, last month my neighbor had hired the services of driveway paving in Suffolk County contractors to lay a brick paver patio in their garden area. After the completion of installation, it has appreciated the value of their property.
    • Caught a 19" Bass fishing for Crappie last night!!   I was using 2.5" Gulp Minnows on a small Jig catching Crappie and i couldn't get a good pic as it was dark and couldn't get flash to come on my phone.   4 pound test .... nice little fight .... Had a few nice swirls nip my Bobber also five minutes before that.   Crappies were 10" and thin (hungry)  all returned for some catch n release recreational fishing!!   
    • Just wondering if anyone has done this and if so I'd love to see pictures I'm going to make this my spring project 
    • Dude that's pretty awesome data and pics/video.   Way cooler stuff than when I was a middle school kid.
