A Good Bait Store Will Have Golden Shiners
The small golden shiners are great for panfish, especially crappies.
Medium golden shiners are killer for walleye, bass, and northers.
Large golden shiners are super for big walleye and big northerns.
How To Hook a Large Golden Shiner on a Tip UP
Use a circle hook or a treble hook. Hook them in the back just below the dorsal fin. This will allow the golden shiner to swim freely and attract the hungry fish.
