How many bait fridges?
« on: Mar 30, 2022, 12:06 AM »
I live in a college town. Every semester, dozens upon dozens of fully functional mini fridges are tossed into dumpsters. I'm not too proud

Four? The big one for minnows and beer, then separate ones for waxies, spikes and nightcrawlers?

That is no lie Gut.  My sales territory has been Boulder for over 25 years.  Those well off kids that show up here from Dallas, LA and Boston driving Rovers and BMW's leave all kinds of great stuff.  Appliances, TV's, Skis, Instruments, Bikes etc.  Sadly I haven't seen a Beaver Dam, auger,  minnow bucket or MarCum in any of trash piles yet in all my years here.  :P

My keg-orator fridge is limping into the home stretch so I'm in full on search mode this year. 

On a side note I hit South Park, weekend before last.  Still 24" of ice but its wrapping up fast.  Second worst sunburn of my life!  Decent year here for me but not great.  Can't wait for retirement to really get things dialed in.

Would love your giardeneria recipe if your willing to share Ronnie.  Thanks Boys.  Adios Amigos!!

My wife not a fan of the multiple mini fridges for bait, beer, capicola, soppressata, jars of peppers, vino, etc.  Of course until it's time to enjoy the finished products.  3 mini fridges will work.  Bait and beer can go in one!

2nd on that recipe for the giardeneria Ron please feel free to share!
If only God would come down in the form of a man and explain everything to us.

I know a Guy who walked on water and it wasn't frozen.

Look at where Jesus went to pick people. He didn’t go to colleges… he got guys off the fishing docks.

Got this recipe a couple months back from a guy on another site & suited it for paisano' standards.

Works great for hammer handles
( Y _ bones dissolve) & lasts for around 2 months in fridge

My bait fridge is the $2,000 Whirlpool in my kitchen. Fish bait is no different than raw meat.  :tipup:
