what is in the bait bucket

So our first run at minnow trapping wasn't the huge success I was hoping for. Me and the kiddos went to a local still water spot and tried soaking the trap for a few hours in one of the channels of the lake. We baited the inside with dog food from the house and made my safety line out of dacron fly line backing. Then we tossed the trap out and let it sit. My first observation is that all the dog food floated and continued to float even after a couple hours. I don't think that that factor helps.

In the time that our trap soaked I sent the little ones scavenging for worms. They came up with nearly 2 dozen crawlers and we sent those into the drink under a slip bobber. We caught a few fish from their self harvested worms and continued to check the trap that remained empty. We moved the trap a few more times and caught a few more fish on the worms, but the trap still struck out.

Oddly enough we caught more shiners on worms then in our trap...

I'm going to ID this as an Illinois golden shiner
I'm preparing for a weekend in the driftless and that means 48 hours of straight trout fishing madness. Can't wait!

  2. That sounds like some fine fishing. We had a pond behind our house at one point and we would use dog food to catch minnows in the trap but it would take a couple day soak. For quick results I found that bread worked good. I would put a slice in the trap and shred a couple more pieces to throw around the trap. They would eat the bread around the trap then go after the bread in the trap and WHAMO! We'd have some minnows. I also tied a small white fly out of chenille to mimic bread and would cast that out with the fly rod to catch the larger minnows. I got one that's tail stuck out of a 5 gallon bucket.

    I agree with Bill above. Anything to get the kids interested in fishing.

  14. In this fashion my pal Wesley Virgin's report starts in this SHOCKING and controversial VIDEO.

    As a matter of fact, Wesley was in the military-and shortly after leaving-he found hidden, "self mind control" tactics that the CIA and others used to get everything they want.

    THESE are the EXACT same secrets lots of famous people (especially those who "became famous out of nowhere") and top business people used to become rich and successful.

    You've heard that you utilize only 10% of your brain.

    That's really because most of your brain's power is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Perhaps that conversation has even occurred IN YOUR own brain... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's brain about seven years back, while driving a non-registered, beat-up trash bucket of a car without a license and with $3 in his bank account.

    "I'm absolutely fed up with living check to check! Why can't I turn myself successful?"

    You took part in those conversations, am I right?

    Your own success story is going to happen. All you have to do is in YOURSELF.
