TheAdamBomb said:Hey guys, just a reminder...when you're cast netting PB's be tactful in the amount you harvest! They are the offspring of the larger menhaden that are a super important food source for bass, blues, and other fish. Once you get enough for a day's fishing, stop netting 'em! They don't "net and release" well, and don't freeze well either - they turn to mush!
Have a great day, and those cooler conversion kits work pretty good. Nothing can beat a good flow-thru livewell system, though!
i want to make it distinctly clear: 1. i do not waste bait, the whole point of this thread was to find ways in which i could keep bait alive. 2. i do not keep excessive amounts of bait that i will not use...BEACHBASSARD said:its got to be one off the things that makes want to screem.
theres nothing more wastful then some one keeping buckets of dead bait fish that they are going to wast.
see it every year 5gl.buckets full of peanuts some azz hole says he is going to use for bait. sad part is there most likely to be the first to b1tch about the com.guys.
same thing with mullet i dont think any one realy needs a 5gl. bucket of dead fish.
and then theres the guys on the beach that dump dead mullet on the beack every morning befor catching a fresh batch.
would it be so frigin hard to let them go when your done for the day or give them to some one that can use them.
hate to say it but i think its even worse then people keeping short fish.
sorry for the rant but it drives me nuts.
