Do y'all think if the next time I go Crappie fishing if I was to use sure life shad keeper combined with a airater would it keep the minnows alive longer than with just the bucket and airater and I know they have a product called finer shiner out there but I all ready have the shad keeper and this stuff is expensive
I have used Better Bait and Shad keeper both....work great. Shad keeper is what I use constantly now. As stated above, with the cooler weather they will do better. I have a 25 gallon tank that I keep mine in....usually buy them by the pound and use it for my left over minnows. The more minnows the more ammonia you will get in the water. Shad keeper takes out the ammonia and chlorine. Sure you already know this but dont use city water unless you pre-treat the water with Shad keeper or something to take out the chlorine.
