Salted Minnows

7 posts in this topic

Has any tried tipping a jigging spoon with just the head of a salted minow?

I will sometimes freeze my shiners if I dont use them all, and dont want to bother with keeping them alive.

I put them in little baggies of about 6-8, and use them for jigging.

Not sure onthe salted minnow, but I have had pretty good success. Its sometimes important to show those fish a little meat, and a frozen or salted minnow is a lot easier to deal with than a bucket and wet hands.

I was watching a ice fishing show with Chip Leer and he was catching eyes with a spoon tipped with salted minnow heads

I'd think a fresh minnow would be better, unless salted or frozen were your only options????

I would agree, but maybe the salt disperses well in the water...I guess I really don't know

I saw that one. He was doing very well. My own experience is limited to open water where I have had great luck with salted minnows in Canada.
