Thinking a lot about my ice fishing stratagies. I know lots of anglers like to attach pecies of a minnow to a jig or jigging spoon to draw the fish in. Would it make more sense to purchase a bag of preseved minnows for that? I mean if the bait is going to be dead anyway, why not just keep it on hand right? I know the preseved baits will often times have an "enhanced" color and scent. Any thoughts on that? Also, would it make sense, when fishing for Pike, to put on a big bucktail jig with a chunk of dead smelt? Or is that best left for the tip-ups.

If your rich, and can afford the gulp alive it's still not as good as live or preserved bait. But this is coming from a guy who keep's his minnows in a fish tank for later.

We have never done very well with the gulp, but have heard from friend's who have. Last years boundry waters trip gulp did nothing. Emerald shiners do pretty well for preserved bait. Has anyone tried the stuff they sell locally. I have wondered about the stuff they sell at Gander etc for a few years now but have never tried it.
