    i was wondering if any of you guys or gals have ever tried using Croaker or Cod from the seafood section of the meat department of the grocery store?
    I saw some yesterday and was wondering if anyone had ever tried it before.

    i have never used them but i m pretty sure you could use them in or for some kind of stink bait of the sort. I have heard of poeple usen' them for cats and sea bass but that was near the coast. sorry i couldn't be of more help

    Isn't croaker a member of the drum family? I've tried cut freshwater drum for bait, and never caught a fish on it.
