    Ive heard of people having good luck with red Kool Aid,they just put the bait in a bagg and add the Kool aid give it a good shake then let it sit in the frige over night.

    Make you up a pack of cherry jello according to the directions. Then add about 2 tablespoons of garlic salt and stir untill the salt dissolves. Add the shrimp shell and all and let sit overnight. Don't put it in the fridge or the jello will solidify. This also works well with hotdogs and chicken. Killer bait for blues and channels.

    Try and use anise extract its a bit expensive but usually one bottle will last me the whole summer. ( a little goes a long way here) The kool-aid and jello tricks work also. Sometimes just plane Jane shrimp works so bring a couple of pieces of just plain shrimp also.

    I use raw shrimp all the time, I just put some garlic powder on them. I just keep re freezing them, they get better with age.

    I have a couple dozen of the real big raw shrimp heads plus a few whole shrimp mixed with garlic powder, chicken liver blood and cornmeal so it kind of formed a paste. Let it sit in the sun for a while and cook. Now in the freezer, gonna try it next time out. let you know if any luck.
