What do you guys use, if anything, for any left over minnows? I'm thinking of a cheap aquarium with a filter. I was using a large horse trough but I didn't have a filter and they were a pain to catch and now it's pretty hot outside. I've given them away but would rather keep my money. Yes, I know, jigs... smile

Hard to keep minnnows this time of year. Even if you have the perfect storage set-up, they still stress with the difference in water temperature, and stress is the killer of minnows and shad.

I wouldn't use an aquarium unless it is round with no corners. I tried once and it was bad news and all dead within a day. They are like shad and will go straight for any corner and just stay there until they die.
