I have zero issue with minnows turning to mush, and I freeze all my minnows. We've used packages that are 2 years old and have had no issues at all. We only salt shiners, no fatheads or chubs. In my experience, the most important prep rules are to start the process quickly(don't let them sit in the bucket for hours) and to make sure all the slime is removed. If you do that, I can assure you, they to not turn to mush.

Been salting my own shiners for about 10 years for our flyin trip(which doesn't allow you to bring in live bait). Though trial and error I've got it down pretty good. It saves us a ton of $$$. I net up my own shiners and salt about 80 dozen for our trip. My process is as follows.

1. Put the minnows in a bucket of water(I use a 5 gallon bucket about 1/3 to 1/2 full of water. Dump about 1-2lbs of pickling salt in with the minnows and stir around with your hand until the salt has disolved. Let them sit for 20 minutes or so, then dump them into a minnow net and rinse well with a hose. This process removes the slime from the minnows. Shake as much of the water off the minnows as you can.

2. Dry out the bucket and return the minnows. Cover with lots of pickling salt and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours.


3. Rinse off the minnows. I usually fill the bucket back up with some water and swish it around until the salt has disolved. I dump them back into the minnow net and spray them off well with the hose, removing as much of the salt as I can.


4. Dump them on an old towel and pat dry. I vacuum seal mine but a zip lock bag works fine too.
Put them in the freezer until you need them.


This process will make them "rubbery". You can leave them on the boat seat all day and they will not turn to mush or dry out. Plus they keep their color and look alive. This process doesn't take as long as it seams lol. Plus pickling salt is very cheap. The vacuum seal bags are the most costly item. Hope this helps.

I've been every year since 1993(sometimes twice). I've fished with 7 different outfitters throughout NW Ontario. The last 10 years have been spent with Amik outpost out of red lake. John and Rena do an amazing job and the fishing is second to none. Their website is www.canadianflyinfishing.com. I know there are some good ones out there but I've not found one better. My

Took this pic last week. The property line I hunt is about 100 yards from this picture. Feeling positive about this year. (sorry for the sideways pic)

I am, by no means, a Tom Brady or Patriots fan. But I find conversations like this laughable. The guy is a winner....period. And because of the fact he's not the quarterback of the team we like he's an arrogant ? I'm personally more concerned with "off the field antics" than "on the field antics". To my knowledge he's a stand up guy and does a lot for his community. He doesn't kneel during the national anthem, get a d.u.i. once a year, get busted for weed, fail drug tests, or shoot at people. I've never observed him in interviews coming across prideful or act as though he is better than everyone else on the field. To the contrary. He seems pretty humble for a guy who's wife makes twice what he does and collectively have a net worth of around $500,000,000. Don't let your distain for an individual cloud his accomplishments or the fact that he's actually a pretty good dude. If the Vikings signed him tomorrow I would be jacked! JMHO

Looking at purchasing the 715c. Seems to have good reviews. Checking to see if anyone owns one and if it's a good unit. Any feedback is appreciated.
Thanks!
