Bait Fishing

After my frabill traps came up empty again I decided to do it the old fashioned way and caught me some creek chubs with the fishing pole. Ended up with around 3 dozen bait fish for my trip to the Muammee tomorrow.


Frabill Minnow Trap

After spending the weekend down south with my buddy Chuck, I decided to go out and buy me a Frabill Minnow trap. It worked great for him and at under $10 bucks, I figured why not give it a try. He showed me a trick were he used a stainless steel tea ball to put his bait (cat food) in so I decided why not it worked for him it should work for me and you can pick one up for around $2.

After setting the trap out for a couple hours I go back and I have only one minnow in the trap. Now I now it ain’t location because I can see minnows swimming everywhere. So I decided to add some bread to the trap and after a few hours I went back to check the trap and there is still only one minnow in the trap. Going to let it sit overnight and if the trap is empty, then it just might be location and ill have to find another creek to try.

Homemade Cooler Livewell

I finally gotten around to making myself a homemade livewell out of a old cooler that my brother gave me. I’m using a Pacific Hydrostar 158 GPH Submersible Fountain Pump that I picked up for around 10 bucks and Aqua Culture 20-60 Gallon Aquarium Air Pump for around the same amount.

Outdoor Multi – Pocket Fishing Vest

Just found a new vest that I like, it is a multifunctional fishing vest with multiple pockets to easily store my fishing gear. Its  light weight and durable, made out of Dacron. Although its not water proof, its breathable and quick to  dry. Another plus is that it comes in my size and is only priced at 19.99.
