RE: Emerald shiners vs Fatheads
Shiners from Poor Richards. You get more than the dozen you pay for, they are decent size & stay alive good for me. I bought some last year at BAC & they were way too small & seemed to die easily. Try shiners & fatheads & make your own choice. In warmer weather, I have had better luck keeping fatheads alive, though. If using fatheads, try using a jig with some flash in it.
