Shiner Pen

6 posts in this topic

Anyone know where a guy can purchase a good live bait pen to keep shiners in. I've looked online but can't find anything in our region, or that I really like. Thanks in advance.

we have used old drier drums over the years to keep bait in. you could use a minnow trap too

Whatever you keep them in, they need a sheltered area away from wave action and silt washing around in the pen. A 5 gallon bucket drilled full of holes with the cover snapped back on works well if you can drop it into deep enough water.
