    Default Minnow counts and weight

    You know it’s frustrating as heck when places decide to go to the by the pound count on minnows and then I’m gonna sit up there and you tell them you’d like around 30 and they’re gonna count the dang things one at a time and give you exactly 30. you know they’re not even accounting for the few that die

    Same thing here, had to stop and recount a few times, as they might be 1 over. Can’t have that.

    I drive 10 miles one way out of the way when I purchase minnows
    #1 reason Local American owned
    #2 reason $20.00# or $11.00 1/2#
    I pass up 2-3 places that has minnows but they are $2.50 and $3.25 per dozen and at those places they
    count them individually and 0 xtra! And I guess it’s where they handle them mortality rate is very high !

    3.00 a dozen most places here. One place sells them for 14.00 a scoop. Depends on who is working which size scoop they use. LOL

    Buying by the pound which I usually do, I have found the size of the minnows determine the actual quantity. I bought some this spring that were a struggle to put on the hook they were so small. Use to when I was a kid, most bait shops had them seperrated by size but I am not finding that now.
