saving some $ with leftover minnows
« on: December 23, 2013, 12:53:07 PM »
I'm wondering if anyybody here has used salted minnows as bait on the ice. I've used them in spring for trout but never thought of them for icefishing. I have a bubbler that I use to keep my leftovers alive till my next trip but always end up with some dead loss. I put some in a baggy and loaded it with salt, if they work could be a great way to save some cash. Please chime in with your opinions! ???
I'm jigg'n to go

I was actually thinking of saving the dead ones and chopping them up for chum.

I don't see why they wouldn't work while jigging? Most walleye fisherman like using just  the head of a dead minnow.
