There are two groups of bait dealers that have netted buckeye minnows (aka emerald shiners or icicles) from the bays and creeks of Oneida Lake and are having them tested for VHS in Maine as we speak. There were also many 4-6 inch buckeye minnows that were netted this fall from these groups. Could equate into some great bait for the 2010 winter ice fishing season. Stay tuned.

  Great news, how long ago did they send them out, I know last year it took like a month for the results to come back!

Hey Snag.....test results should be back by next week for one bait distributor, and near the first of the year for the other bait distributor.

Lets hope so.  Bait shop down by me says that they will have shiners by the first of the year. I believe he said that they are coming out of Wisconsin though.

I believe A-1 Bait out of Niagara Falls is getting their certified buckeye minnows out of Wisconsin. Not sure if Big Catch Bait distibutor is or not.

Rick will have the conesus (similar to the bohemian rocker) when there is ice, which is when he will likely open.
