Coachkwj:
What is the best way to keep and sore left over roaches and suckers for using as dead bait. Hate to take then home and watch them slowly die, even in fish tank with air pump.

Iceassin:
Ok...what's a roach? I'm assuming it's not the bug type...or is it?

JonPerry:
in the freezer.

Essentially a golden shiner that gets huge. Iíve heard of them but had to google it.

If you plan on using them dead anyways just freeze them. Or pack them in salt.

You've probably used golden roaches but they were mistakenly called shiners. Shiners are thinner bodied minnows more commonly used as walleye bait.
Just throwing them in the freezer hasn't worked too well. They get freezer burn. Does anyone put some kind of solution in with them before freezing?
