So I have had the same bucket of minnows for the last few weeks. I have been to several lakes and moved around trying to fine Walleye and Crappie. I have had just about zero luck. Today I gave them to my Dad to go out with. He sat up next to my uncle who brought his own minnows. My uncle limited out and my dad did not catch one fish. Is there such a thing as tainted minnows? Or am I (and my Dad) just having a serious run of bad luck.
