My suggestion is find somewhere you can see minnows.. Slow shallow water. I don't trap minnows but that is where I often see them schooling.

You can check as often or infrequently as you like, I wouldn't bother checking more than once a day and not any more infrequently than once a week.

put it out of sight!!!! thats the first step cuz poeple like shiney things, ie minnow traps.. find a drain ditch or small channel where you know there is some kinda bait in there.. for bait take a plastic bag with ciniman bread poke a buncha holes and check your trap when ever you need minnows. also it helps to deter thieves if your name is on it..

Places it under a dock,if you can. I don't use bait as more ofton than not small pannies will chase off or eat the you bait. If placed in a stream find a funnel area that forces minnows into the trap. Also find the easy route for the minnows to travel. I have even put a screen going from shore out to the trap. Something for them to follow.

There is a web site that identifies native bait fish in Minnesota.there is also some tips as to where they hang out and when.If you catch minnows in a creek this time of year they may be red tail chubs or creek chubs,about .75- $1.00 each at the bait store.I would sort them by putting them on my hook.You may want to check the DNR web site as well,there are some regs and restrictions you may want to be aware of.

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
