    Friend of mine goes to Canada every year. He told me he is not allowed to take live minnows across the border into Canada/. Tells me he freezes the minnows. Is there secret to this process. I never asked him how he does it. ANY HELP ON HOW TO FREEZE AND TRANSPORT INTO CANADA? Robbie

    When we used to make a trip to Lake Of The Woods, a few years back, we would seine, then freeze them in a mixture of salt and borax, don’t recall the exact amounts, but worked well, the minnows stayed firm, and we caught walleyes on them.

    It’s easy because I had some in a bucket in the garage that got pretty stiff the other night.

    Just use straight rubbing alcohol. Fill your container,add your minnows. Best thing i ever found .
    I have kept them for weeks like this. Works for all bait fish.

    Gamefish don’t mind the taste of rubbing alcohol?
