ok i was thinking about it, but has anyone ever use scallops for bait for cats?
i've used fresh water mussels and they work great.
Nicholas they would have to be bad before i would ever think about useing scallops for bait ,except for me :wink::smile2:
years ago, i was swimmin in lake weiss and figured out if i dig my toes in the mud i could find freshwater clams. so i got a couple, went fishin, and had quite a few bites on em. try em out and let us know how it went.
At $10 a lb,they aint never gonna see a scallop on my hook!:crazy:
I have used clam snouts in MD when i was a kid fishing on the patomic river. The worked for me, but i have never used scallops. Too rich for my blood.:wink:
im with the rest of these guys if i buy scallops they wont make it to the fishing grounds with me in a bag. they will be in my stomach. I love those things. However i would have to think they would work well.
I heard that. If the bait cost more per pound that buying the fish... :smile2:
lol the only place those scallop's are going is on to the grill then into my stomach:smile2:
scallops,shrimp,lobster,clams, all that stays home for the table :wink:
No cat will ever see one of them from me, thats for sure,,,:wink:
Its been said that catfish will eat anything I tend to think they are more complex than that,that being said if you got a good deal on scallops try them as a far as to the answer to your question I dont think anybody here has tried them so give them a try and let us know.:wink:
reading about the scollops,shrimp, lobster, clams, man i am ready for a seafood boil...bring on the corn and patatos hell throw in some lemons, crawdads, crab and some old bay or slap yo mama and an ice cold beer.....DAMN IT MAN IM READY TO EAT....:big_smile:
I'm probably one of the rare folks on here that doesn't like scallops, so I would try them if they were free. :wink: But I'd bet a bunch of money that catfish would wear scallops out simply because they're shellfish. I don't know any type of shellfish that catfish don't love, clams, shrimp, crawdads, mussells, prawns, etc.
ok i had found some bay scallops at walmart for 4.50 a pound there flash frozen and i pay darn near that for the shrimp i use some times. I am gonna use them and see how they do next time i go fishing.
make sure you give a report back. like ive said before, if the fish are biting on 7 foot purple and yellow anacondas, we would all fish with them. $4.5 a pound aint bad for scollops i may need to run down to wally world and check that out.
yeah im hopeing to find someone to go fishing with me on my next days off which are tuesday and wednesday this week at a private pond a friend of mine lives on and i'll try them then and give a report.
ok scallops r not that great they break up pretty easy and all i caught on them was a couple gill at about 100 feet from shore and on bottom nun the less.
thanks for the report.
THANKS FOR THE REPORT!!!
i kinda figured that might be the case actually...i guess im going to have to just stick to cooking them on the ol' grill and eating them myself
