where are you catching your bait fish now or have been in the past ?

i've used anything from a 50 ft 1/4 "seine net to 2 ft dip net.

mostly at low water near pipes under highways or ditches that have sluice gates & rock piles or grass beds. good luck finding grass bed this time off years

if you could give me mile makers & highways or creek names would be a help,shrip are 1.35 per lb and minnows are 25 a gallon at this time

freedom ots,

Great Advise Freedom, Thanks,,,
Locally around that area I fine plenty of
Bait down at Corson's Inlet State Park (CISP)..
Under the Bridge,along the SodBank and GrassBeds.
Cast Net or Minnow Trap is what I use.....

Good Luck,,,

While I was doing that BIGGESTJACK put a bib on and waited for the All You Can Eat Grass Shrimp Fry.

Sorry BIGGEST. Next week we can have a leftover freezer special. Herring, squid, mullet and clam dinner. Bring your own blender and straw. :D
