    What do you use to bait for shrimp? And what's the most effective bait for blue crab? I have a cast net and shrimp trap that go with me when I go to Texas. I love hauling my dinner 50' from salt water to the grill. [​IMG]

    It's a good thing. chicks or any bird do not have the proper nutrition for snakes. They can be a treat, but the snake will suffer over the long term.

    I live 3 hours from Moab and we have family down there. I love it. [​IMG]

    I love them both.

    Yes!! Thank you! That's the word!


    Seriously, you are making me crave a vacation so bad right now!!! I'd even take walking the beach for seashells right now. I'm getting sad...I miss FL!


    Oh, so sorry. I HATE when my kids are sick. It's always one, then the next, then the next. By the end of it, you've been dealing with sickness for 3 wks!! What's the ages of your kids? Mine are almost 8,10 & 7 months.

    I hate to say it on this site but we use raw chicken.

    When legally baiting, we use dried fish meal mixed with a congealant to make patties, about the size of large hamburger patties. You throw 2 or three around each pole, then cruise up and down the line, casting over the bait.
    From the bank and not necessarily legally baiting a can of dog food with holes punched all around it[​IMG]
    Chicken necks for blue crab. Cheapest, and holds together the longest. You can catch them good with mullet, too, but one or 2 crabs will destroy a mullet

    Has anyone ever tried the mealworm/sunflower suet for their chicks? It was on sale for $5 at my feed store. They are going crazy over it!! It will keep them busy all day! I am going to have some seriously spoiled chickens! I wonder if the eggs will taste extra good! ;)

    I would do it but sparingly because of the lard used to make it....really fatty.
