    I went to the grocery store today and saw a whole bag full of frozen anchovies, does anybody know if they work and how to bait the on the hook?

    My dad's buddy who lives out in California uses them quite often for catfish bait out there.

    I've never tried them but I bet they would work, they are a nice oily fish.

    We use them out here in california but mostly for stripers. We use them on slip rigs the kind with the sliding hook. I've only gotten one catfish on anchovies. Stripers love them tho.
