Looking for current ice conditions on prairie. How are the landings ? Walking on yet ?
Hey my family is currently a one income family due to a lay off and I am just doing everything I can to be able to keep our tradition going for our family, there are other ways I’m looking to save money on top of the bait.
I plan on buying the first day or 2 of bait but hopefully I will be able to minnow trap some for the rest of the week.
if anyone has any other ideas of where to catch some minnows it would be much appreciated!!
With the bait restrictions you would have to find an area on the chain to catch minnows to use on the same body of water. Might be able to catch some in the creeks or maybe off the docks with a minnow trap. Have not tried it though good luck.
I usually drive up to the chain from Illinois the first week of June, my main bait is minnows and I usually just buy them, but this year I am thinking about trying to just catch my own and save money. Is there anywhere in the area I can go and net my own minnows?
Just curious if the ice is still holding up or has the snow brought to much water on top? Wouldnt mind takin one last crack at ice fishin but i have a feeling id have to head quite a ways north from where im at in Eau Claire.
Thanks in advance
