They say fish go to school, but here’s one that proves minnow’s are not in that category, in fact they must be pretty dumb. So if you need some minnows for bait here’s a quick and easy way to trick a bunch of them into being on the end of your fishing hook. Minnow are so dumb if you put a peice of bread into a pop bottle they will swim in and won’t be able to find their way out! If you happen to have two pop bottles then your in business! It will take 2 two liter pop bottle’s and a knife, or scissors, and a nail, simple as that.
HOW TO CATCH THE MINNOWS WITH YOUR MINNOW TRAP
To use your trap, add some bread or cracker bits through the funnel
Sink the trap in your favorite pond or lake for a few hours, preferably overnight.
Tie it securely to a dock or tree.
The minnows will go in the trap but aren’t smart enough to get out.
Next morning, simply open the bottle cap and pour the minnows into your bait bucket. You’re all set for a day of fishing!
