My fishing partner and I try to get out and "shake them up" as often as possible. When we go out to clear the ice out of the hole we're sure to bring that minnow up and check him out. This accomplishes a couple of things: 1. you make sure your bait is fresh, 2. you can bring in line if the bait makes it to a clump of cover you weren't aware of, 3. you can jumpstart an inactive minnow. It is not uncommon to have flags go off behind you as you are off to the next hole.
