    Has anyone ever tried drying fresh shrimp in a dehydrator? I think that it would work wonders if they would stay tough enough to stay on the hook, especially with a little garlic salt.

    If they dont work, simply open your bag and eat the shrimp yourself :big_smile:

    i haven't really used a dehydrator but I live in a an area with a hot dry climate and if I'm using shrimp as bait I usually let it sit and "air" out between rebaiting. It works pretty good for me, the hotter the weather the better. Good fishin to ya. :cool2:

    when i use shrimp, i go to Target and buy Tiger Shrimp (so called due to their stripes). It has its shell still on it and is tough enough to stay on the hook during a hard cast. cats in my area seem to prefer it over the other kinds of shrimp too.
