I bought a case of 24 at the beginning of the season last year. You can't beat Parker's.

A great tip for "mushy minnows" is to drain them when they thaw and add a couple of table spoons of coarse pickling salt. It toughens them right up and makes them a bit leathery and stay on the hook whether its hot or cold weather. Had an old fellow show me this trick long ago.
90% of the fish are in 10% of the water
