I normally (when things get really bad :)) don't use bait. However this week end I might be forced to. Northern coming in and we are taking the soldiers out Saturday. I sure want them to "feel the tug" not just ride around in 3 foot waves.
So, what do you guys think about catching bait Friday and keeping them overnight? Not necessarily in a bait tank though. If they are put on ice will they stay firm enough to use as cut bait on Saturday (may have to search for catfish)?
I don't have time to dry them out and salt them. That's a good way to use shad on jug lines.
Thanks in advance.
