    Just thought I would share this bait I used last year. Caught several channel cats with this. The channels cats, even few bigguns, really like this! I took raw, uncooked large shrimp and injected them with real crayfish oil with a marinade injector. You can get the pure sun-rendered crayfish oil from most trapping supply store's on the web. Try it! the sun-rendered crayfish oil makes a nice slick in the water.

    Looks like something I'll have to try this spring. Sounds like it would be a farely cheap bait, which is always a plus.

    1 thing I forgot to mention is that you can cut the crayfish oil with plain old cooking oil. This stuff is super concentrated and you really don't need to use it full strength. I usually cut it 2 parts crayfish oil and 1 part cooking oil. Just always shake it well cause it will separate.

    Jumbo shrimp are one of my favorite baits. Never thought about injecting them with anything. Thanks for the great tip.
