KEEPING MINNOWS ALIVE


KEEPING MINNOWS ALIVE

For the past few years I have been very successful in keeping minnows alive while carrying them. I use an ordinary work man’s dinner pail with two compartments, such as can be purchased nearly anywhere for a very small price. I fill the top compartment with ice and put the water with the minnows in the bottom compartment. A small hole punched through the floor of the top compartment allows the melted ice to gradually drip into the bottom compartment. The ice can be renewed very easily and on very hot days a wrapping of heavy paper around the bucket makes it better.

The two large hooks at the end are held close together by an arm, which is soldered to one of the hook shanks and has a bend in the end which catches the other hook shank just enough to hold it. The bait is fastened on the small double hooks marked A and ex tends backwards as far as desired.

When the fish strikes, the upper trailer hook is immediately knocked loose from the small bend in the arm, B, that holds it and the spring thrusts the two hooks apart vigorously, striking them well into the fish’s mouth. C is a small loop for fastening to the line.
