    How many of you caught your own bait as a kid?

    I grew up living next to Malaga Lake. We caught all our own night crawlers and sold the rest to Repps Blackwater Tackle Shop. We also caught and sold shiners to John and he'd keep them in the stream along side the store. Lots of fun and got paid! [img]smile.gif[/img] Course we bought new hooks and lures.

    Catch my own minnies as we speak.Personal use only. Mainly just to feed a pet Bass at home. Sometimes I get lucky and get some crawdads in the mix.
