So OK time to give up some secrets. How do you keep your live bait live. I don't have any particular problem with night crawlers. An old milk box works just fine. Some worm bedding from wal mart and I'm good for a couple of months at least. Depends on the outside temp. What I do have problems with is minnows.A five gallon bucket, an aquarium bubbler and I'm good for almost a week. Notice I said almost. Just when the new weekend starts the minners die.I even changed the water. I had some beauties caught in the creek behind the house.All dead come sat morn, So OK I need some help here.
