Uncle Milty had minnows and 4" - 5" shiners (last I checked). You might want to give him a call before heading over there. 303-789-3775

One place that doesn't carry minnows is Bait and Bullet in Brighton. Wish they did. I don't know of any place around Ft. Lupton that carries them. :'( Does anyone know of a place? ???

I been buying my floaters at Gander but most anywhere should have some.I hook them from under the mouth up through their skull and they stay happy and wiggly.I like to keep them about 4-6 inches off the bottom.If the minnow is too big then the minnow can pull the floater down into the weeds or whatever and the system doesnt work.

The minnow will act as weight and take your jighead to the bottom the float basically makes the minnow stay above structure, grass, moss, whatever.

Oh yeah,you need weight-I'll use 2 or 3 splitshots like 4-6 inches from the floater depending on the hight you want.Also depends on how far you want to cast out,wind,etc.Its really not very complicated.
