Sometimes it’s so cold it doesn’t matter that you have an insulated minnow bucket. Once those minnows freeze in your day is toast. Change that water often and build an igloo for your minnow bucket to keep them unfrozen and lively.
Minnow Conservation Tip
Not if that is your back up tank and all the current victims are traveling to and from active flags in a lighter bucket. I don’t carry big hoss around. He holds my practice squad.
Chaw. If you were a better fisherman your minnow net going in and out of the pail would keep the water from freezing! Lol. And is “ unfrozen” a real word? CARPIO
Sound advice Chaw
That stare or look from the wife or MIL can draw blood even if nothing is said. Sometimes it better to cower and repent for your actions.
When I got home yesterday my wife was sitting at the kitchen table with my Mother in Law.
I tried to tell them about minnow conservation but they didn’t care. I didn’t care about the topic they wanted to discuss either. Since I’m a grown man and can handle all the walking and fishing I made the mature decision to go sit on the couch to think about my behavior and fell asleep about 20 minutes after I got home.
My final ice fishing tip- When you get home from a fishing trip and your MIL is at your house it is perfectly acceptable to go right to sleep to avoid any hassles when you’re tired.
I do feel for you Chaw. You should have heard the lecture I got from my wife when I cluelessly sent her a pic that revealed a bottle of blackberry brandy in the sled. I got chewed out so bad, l felt like I was 13 years old
Man your alright for a bears fan. First that is a good tip on helping your minnows out while on the ice. Second that comment after getting busted with chew is priceless!
Thank you ZMan. I feel a lecture coming from multiple locations.
Your killing me Chaw! :)
No that’s black licorice.
Ok It’s chew
i already got chewed out by my wife after I sent that pic home. Second time this week after I had a few frozen beers and that showed up in a pic. I might as well take a selfie of me smoking crack on a trampoline.
