Preserved baits...

  1. Has anybody used dead preserved minnows or grass shrimp on the ice and had any success with them ? Ive been thinking of ordering some from basspro to try out.

    I purchased some of the grass shrimp and I can't wait to try them out. The minnows don't look as appealing.

  3. I tried the minnows with no luck, some say they work others say they suck.
  4. I know live minnows work great anytime of the year but they arent always available during the winter unless you are willing to travel. Hopefully if ya move a dead minnow around enough he might look like he is swimming.
    I seen the grass shrimp though and thought there may not be many people using them or even thought about trying them. Since they are a small bug like creature, almost a grub or maggot with legs they just might be the secret weapon that no one knows about.
