2006 Skeeter Cookoff "2nd Place Brisket"
It's legal in the state of Texas, it's fun for kiddo's to get an easy bite, and croaks work dang well.... Sorry gang, but I use um when I'm taking a novice, woman, or kids... Or when I have an empty freezer....I agree that the bycatch from shrimpers is prolly not the best thing for our bays, while it ain't any worse than a tugboat pumping out an oily bilge( which we have a gozillion tugs and ships in the Galveston bay complex) but until shrimping is outlawed why not make the best of it.......I do what I can to help our bays and enviroment sustain, recycle mono, don't pump bilge unless necessary, pick up a floating alum can when I see one, and work the crab trap clean up.... But, I do not consider myself a POTLICKER for using live bait.... When a boat pulls up close enough to you when you are on a nice slick with birds working and fish biting, and is close enough that you can smell that he didn't take a shower that morning or the nite before, then by all means scream out POTLICKER....... Or shoot em...... LOLfrankd said:there probably wont be another run like the one in years past....they end up on a potlickers hooks!!!
This reply is not intended to degrade anyone or any orginazation, It's just my opinion.... And I have Ok'ed it.... LOL.... Now open another beer
