no answer at my purveyor of choice for grass shrimp

 

any idea what might be available for tipping small small sabikis to catch some tasty little critters?

 

would squid pieces work?

View PostWhen grass shrimp were a no go, all the old timers used seaworms. A lot of them prefered seawroms over everything else.

 

 

I found this to be very true, back in the day when I fished for them under the lights by the old freezer plant..........

Ok

 

I,ve never had a problem getting enough grass shrimp for smelt fishing . they are around 12 months ....... no -I can,t get enough for everyone .

I,d be lucky / in this time // 2011 to get more than a liter where back iin the day / you could still get @ least a gallon in the winter .

I have a friend that for years delivered shrimp to the Boston area bait shops .

But take away the marsh & eelgrass & you reduced the shrimp .

I also used to be able to dig a flat of clamworms a tide >.in RI .. now I can,t bend down to dig them & can,t afford to buy them / LOL
