Get some crawlers and some tiny hooks. Go to the Rea rd launch, cast a bit of crawler to the slack weed beds and catch all the chubs/shiners you'll need. Put them in a bucket, and continue upstream.thanks much how far is that from the dnr
Minnows are expensive around there, especially since the VHS thing. If you're bringing any kids, part of the thrill for them will be bait collection. You're only fishing the shoreline for the shiners/chubs. You really see what the river can produce when you fish with what it provides....do they sell shiners up there?
