.30-06 OUTDOORS Cabela's Preserved Bulk Fatheads

When the fish are finicky and all they'll bite on is the real thing, you'll always have the right bait on hand when you keep a supply of these preserved fatheads in your boat or tackle bag. They are sealed at their peak of freshness so they have all the scent, flavor, color and texture of live bait. Sizes: Small - (Per 320 approximate count) Large - (Per 140 approximate count) Colors: (005) Red, (013) Natural, (096) Chartreuse.

Bulk Fatheads

Date:August 9, 2011
Just returned from Smoothrock Lake in Ontario, Canada. Live minnows out- produced the preserved minnows 15-1. Only use if in a pinch and if no live bait is available.

Way better than expected

Date:June 13, 2011
I bought a bag of the large fatheads to take to Canada. We also had Gulp and a few pounds of live leeches. I added some Kick'N Walleye scent to the minnows and was amazed at how they worked. They turned out to be the best producer, even better than the live leeches (could be related to time of year too).
The minnows held up well and the fish really wanted them. Much of it was related to the added scent I'm sure, but for the price, I could get 4 bags for the price of 1# of live leeches. They will be coming back with us next season for sure.

Bad Bait

Date:May 28, 2008
Bought the preserved minnows for a fly in trip to Canada. The minnows were stiff as a board, but I thought they would improve once in the water. No such luck. Like putting a piece of wood on a hook. Will never use again, even the seagulls wouldn't eat them.

Cabela's Preserved Bulk Minnows

Date:July 2, 2007
Bait looked very good, stayed on the hook well, but failed to perform. Fished Lake Roosevelt (WA) for 1 week for smallmouth, walleye, and burbot. Worms and artificial bait both worked well but not a nibble on the preserved shiners. Lake has a healthy crawfish population and the minnows were not even touched when used on a set line at night.

Preserved Minnows

Date:June 12, 2007
I recently returned from the Pickle Lake area of Ontario Canada. We used these minnows for the first time and they worked as well as using live bait . They were great on the portage lakes . They held up very well on the hook.
