    Default Shrimp???

    I have fished catfish all my life and never heard of using shrimp as bait! What kind of shrimp makes the best bait? Is it the grey colored shrimp you see in the seafood department at the grocery store? Do you use the whole shrimp shell and all, or de-shell it and cut it in small chunks? What about rigging? Was very interested to see that this is such a popular bait!

    The top three in order that I have had the most luck with in order are earthworms, chicken livers (with or without garlic salt), and BJ dough stink bait.

    I use uncooked shrimp (grey ones) pop the head shell off and run the hook through the middle from head to tail area, then expose the point of the hook through the shell, drift or still fished this bait will hammer channels everywhere I have ever fished, I think it mimicks and smells like softshell crawdads to them, always a favorite of channel cats. and easier to come by in some areas than crawfish. it is a summer/fall bait in my area, and very popular cause cats from fiddlers to the big boys will hammer them with gleefull abandon. Some guys dress them up with garlic salt and/or other additives, I have always just let the shellfish smell do the job, try it different ways yourself.

    How would you rig this? Suspended or off the bottom? What kind of hook do you guys use with shrimp?
