not a joke Ajax

Hey Ajax...why did we kill it using minnows on the ice but I couldnt buy a bite at Milavec on em? All they would hit was store bought trout bait and maybe Jims lures when he didnt gut hook them. Is there a minnow open water method Im missing? This aint just for Ajax ....all opinions welcome.

The only time I use minnows other than ice was a few years ago for pike, never really find myself using them in open water. The other big difference is that St. Vrain is chocked full of hungry little farm fish. I don't know a darn thing about the lake you guys were at, but very few places are as packed full as Vrain.

The size of what you got is a world better than the little guys we caught! I'd take that trade off!

Bron, that's because Milavec sucks these days. Try it elsewhere to draw a conclusion. .

I never quit learning Ajax and you really schooled me that day. Made me think that if I did it in open water Id get the same result....not so much. PikeN...I will be back on that lake and I hope you are there. Ill probably targetcarp on one pole and trout on the other. Man...those banks make it hard to land a catch!

Just wanted to let you know Milavec does not allow ice fishing....
