    You can never go wrong with cocktail shrimp, seems to work the best.. I always have shrimp, herring, and roe whenever I hit the hardwater. Sometimes you have to test a few baits before you can figure out what they want. However, shrimp is my go to bait first..

    Yep, They work great at Quarts. I cut them up thou, the 20 count shrimp are a little big whole. I always just thawed one or two out at a time also. I noticed if shrimp stayed thawed out all day before I got to it the fish didn't seem to hit it that much, they seemed to like fresh shrimp best. I might go out there next week myself. Please give a report when you get back.

    most of the big stores that sell sea food will sell you only a few at a time an if you want them frozen tell the man an he will get some frozen ones from the locker, if they are wild shrimp an not farm razed I think they work better , that way you only have to buy what you need for 1 or 2 fishing trips

    Nitro Floating Eggs, try sentry hardware in NP. Just a thought.

    Also, don't be afraid to venture off away from the fish and game shack. They can be very unproductive... and the egg shrimp combo is dynamite on those big rainbows. Good luck

    YES! I can tell you whats worked best for me on Quartz. Put the Nitro Egg on the hook first, then put the shrimp on the hook. Use a pretty big hook, like size 6 or 8. This keeps the little buggers that you don't want to catch off the hook.

    Fish On!
    You know your not catching any fish when you start talking about the weather...

    The deadly Nitro egg shrimp combo works great for many. Thinking I may venture to either quartz or harding this week / weekend. It looks to be warming up by Thursday. Good Luck to ya!

    Well went out to quartz this morning and found out the ice hut is in a bad spot had around 8 inches of water underneath all of the ice we had to drill through so we moved out of the hut and fished towards the middle of the lake...Thank god it was warm today.I was using the nitro salmon eggs/shrimp combo and only caught one so maybe better luck next time.
