I have never ice fished for bass and was wondering if minnows have to be live because a pond I know of doesn't allow live bait.  I was going to use dead bait but are they not as effective as live bait? Do other bait or lures work well for largemouth? Thanks.

Dead bait will work but in my experience not quite as effective. I would try jigging for them with any metal spoon.

i would try jigging for them as well...try usiing a silver buddy
when chuck norris played golf for money, chuck marked down a hole in zero every time, the golf pro said, "chuck: you can't score zero on a hole." Chuck norris turned towards the man and said, "I'm chuck norris, the man proceeded to pour gas over his body and set himself on fire because that would be less painful than getting roundhouse kicked by chuck norris....chuck norris roundhouse kicked him in the face anyways

If you have to use dead bait try using a wind tipup, it'll move your bait and make it look a little more lively.

An un-tipped Lindy Darter works good for bass.
