    We counted what we had in our buckets as we put them in zip lock bags . I counted 86 out of mine and threw the one in my son in laws bucket so my bags would be even numbers lol .

    As far as a limit I am sure there is one but :wink:

    I use chubs and cut off the head and use the rest of the body, i keep them live though cuz its more blood. Always found it better that way.
