What do you guys usually pay for a big sucker? I got a couple of monsters last night for .70 a piece. What do you guys pay?

I was at a bait store near Coon Lake last weekend; they were asking $2 for a large decoy.

I usually get XXXL Northern Minnows for a buck a piece or they give you a price break on half or full dozens.

I have to bring my decoys up from the cities since no one sells the size I like near Cambridge.

They keep good in my aquarium though; so it is alright.

How big are they? The ones i got were close to a foot long i know where i use to buy bait they had them for 3$

I considered the ones this weekend very large but I have seen bigger (I have never used bigger though) These were about 2.5 inches in diameter.

The ones I normaly get are just a bit bigger than this. (1.5 to 2 inches in diameter)

You guys have it good.

I have 2 bait shops near me. One sells them for $3 each, the other for $5.50. I'm OK with 3 bucks, but 5.50 seems like a rip-off. Reminds me of $6 beers in downtown Mpls.

    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
