I'm headed out to a back lake later this week and noticed that there is a baitfish restriction (close to Algonquin park). Are salties or frozen pinheads OK?

"Live fish may not be used as bait or possessed for use as bait"

I'm guessing that's the regulation you're referring to.

Exactly as it says...keyword, 'live'. Salties and frozen pinheads are not live.

Those lakes always do well with worms... tip your spoon or 1/8th oz jighead with some worm. And have a set line with a worm and a sinker. I have limited luck with dead minnows personally, but i could see them working if the fish are in the right mood. If you are after specks Id say worms for sure.

Thanks for tips guys. The salties were the ticket, tipped on a spoon and dead sticked on tip ups. They were hungry for sure, all the strikes were really aggressive.
