I was fishing the river about 2 years ago and this man was catching channels left and right. I have seen him in this spot before and he always would catch a stringer full. He showed me a container with these white rings and said his sister owned a grocery store. In the seafood aisle, he picked up the kalimari (squid). He gave me what he had left when he left to go home. I caught a bunch of cats on it and it stays on the hook better than some of the other baits.
