How long will they live??

Recommended Posts

Poeple(who have posted on this site) in northern minnesota are saying that shiners are at a premium right now. so heres my plan.

I will buy my shiners at 5:00am drive one hour to pick my father up, probably kill 20-30 minutes there, then drive 45-50 minutes to our fishin hole. total time= 2.5 hours.

Will shiners live in a bag for 2.5 hrs?? He will be in blackduck which is a popular opener lake/area and im worried that they will not have the minnows that im looking for. I thought i could have the store break them up into multiple bags. Any thoughts or answers to how long shiners live in bags would be appreciated. Or possible other stratagies

thanx

I agree. Keep them cool. A big temperature change will get them belly up pretty quick.

Ask them not to put more than a dozen or so in one bag and like the other guys said keep them cool. It also helps to keep them in a dark place like a cooler or paper bag. They'll less stressed and won't use all the oxygen.

Have them oxygen packed and put them in a cooler with a little ice in it.

Keep them out of the sun! They will last quite a while that way.

have them put only enough water to cover them when the bag is on its side, then squeeze all the air out before filling with oxygen, they dont need that much water the oxygen is more important, then put them in a cooler with an icepack they will live for a few days this way, I do it when I fish tournaments and we always have fresh minnows on the day we need them, the longest I have seen them live this way was with suckers that I forgot in the fridge for a week

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
