I was passing by a drainage creek today and 2 young boys were netting minnows....a bunch of gold shiners and ALOT of rainbow shiners.....now these fellas were not keeping these rainbows, said they had never used em for fishing.

Has anyone used these and if so, any luck?



Thanks!!!!

The gold shiners I have used. In fact, on the opener, we usually buy a couple of dozen. They are usually very expensive. I don't know what the law is for taking these from the wild. Maybe there is no law. But if you have a source of golden shiners for free, I would say that is worth quite a bit. They work very well for northerns and 'eyes. Some years, using the golds was the only way to catch the 'eyes. Also read this story...

I have caught a lot of fish on those things. The ones we buy are usually 3 to 5 inches long.

Hope this helps.
