    Default Random minnow question ..

    Just getting back in the game, but back in the day we used to keep minnows in the cooler on a separate tray with little to zero water and they would last all day.. very lively. My question is does any one else still do this and if so do you keep it in the cooler ? Or does everyone use minnow buckets ??

    You guys think they will survive in a tray/bucket inside a bigger cooler on ice ?

    I would think they would be fine. I put mine in the livewell and put the fluke in there with them. I always wonder how many minnows they eat while they are in there.

    I keep mine in a small 6 pack cooler-wire mesh screen above Ice. Last all day no trouble.

    Almost forgot--- I used to put Ice in bottom and then throw wet dishcloth over the ice--works great

    I take the minnow bucket and just lay it on its side in my fish cooler with the flap up so I can just open cooler and grab a minnow
