    I know some of you fellas use shrimp for bait. What I would like to know is what kind is best to use? Raw vs Cooked, Shell on vs Shell off, Fresh vs Frozen, Large/Med/Small, or is any certain breed better. Any help would be appreciated.

    When I have used shrimp in the past, I have always used fresh shrimp and kept the shell on it. I would pinch off the tail though. You could also spruce it up a little and throw some garlic in your bag of shrimp.

    We use shrimp alot to I buy mine at walmart, and I get the big ones, not cooked If I remember right its about 6 - 7 bucks for around a 30 count somthing like that anyway. I have soaked them in the left over chicken blood, and have give them a squirt with Dead Red to.
    Hope this helps :smile2:
