    I've got some freezer burnt shrimp (i know i know what a shame). Should I 'hop it up' with anything to make it better or use it as is?

    Soak it in garlic for a couple of days and catch some channel and blues.

    Mickey i did this with some freezer burnt large cooked shelled shrimp and baited trotline; hi water here, strong current, can't raise line into all the trash coming downstream; not checked line in two days, probably tommorrow. We'll see. But it'd probably be better if it was raw w/shell on wouldn't it?

    I use garlic salt and Dead RED Team Catfish spray. It works wonders.

    Garlic powder or fish oil will bring those shrimp back to life
