Dont use tap water either. If you do use chlorine killer in the water. Lake water is the best. Distilled water is dead and is no good either.

I buy some of that chlorine neutralizer from the shop then you can use all the tap water you want

I like to put a couple handfulls of snow into my bucket each day. It helps to keep the water nice and cold. Once in the morning and once at night. If the water is cold the minnows go into a sort of dormancy and they will not have to eat, therefore no feeding and no ammonia build-up.

What about leaving the minnows in the lake if you plan to fish a few days in a row? Anyone do this? My buddy said his dad had some kind of metal minnow bucket with holes and a chain. He would lift it up when he needed minnows and put a few in a small foam bucket.

Anyone use a system like this? I'm planning a 3 night sleepover in my new shack and I'd like to try it. Thanks!

Coldmark, we bought a mesh bag for this purpose from Thorne Bros. and we keep our minnows in that down one of our extra holes, and just pull up when needed. Otherwise it stays down there the whole weekend.

    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
