He made a whole post whining about live bait. My suggestion, quit using live bait to pick up stragglers. Learn to actually fish....

While I prefer arties, I would never call some one who uses bait a non-fisherman. As long as it's legal Rock-On.

U know what I get one week off a month. If I want live bait to take my wife and little girl. Then I guess I’m an *** hole sorry for wanting to pass on fishing and the outdoors to my daughter. You know it’s a little hard to throw lures when that’s not what u know how to do. I catch fish on live bait and I catch a lot so why change now. Yes I got mad about the lack of shrimp but maybe I got screwed out of two days fishing cuz my wife and kid won’t throw lures and we went home.

there is nothing wrong with using shrimp for the kids and wife, makes fishing fun for them. did you try to use lures and maybe teach them how since there was no bait available? you and they may be surprised at the results and no mess. they might like that.

I started my girlfriend out with live bait in saltwater. I then took her bass fishing to teach her different lure presentation, mostly topwater and crankbaits. Once she mastered that, I let her try it for some trout and reds. I bought livebait just in case boredom set in.....she had a great topwater bite, catching trout and a 40in. Red on a crankbait. She refuses to throw bait now. ( so I proposed to her...lol) if you cant get shrimp, just keep the trip short if throwing lures unless they are on some fish. Kids/ wives will lose interest quick, but dont give up just because there is no live bait.

Just to clarify for the uneducated idiots who are clearly salty about not catching as much fish as we do........ some of these trips are on artificials. Most of our April trips were artificial trips. And this year we have only had about 3 trips that we didn’t limit on our target species with artificial. That’s what happens when you have 30 years experience in one area and fish 3 days a week. Get over yourselves! We’ve been placing in tournaments for 20 years down here. Don’t tell me I can’t fish because we use croakers from time to time. Literally fish artificial from September through April. I’ll go elbow to elbow with any one of you wanna be purist!

No one told you what you to fish with . The whole gist of the thread was that you should have options and not let a shrimp shortage ruin your trip.
I would add get a cast net to the other suggestions.

I should have quoted ole possum his response was what true fisherman use bait. Seems pretty uneducated. I personally don’t care heat people use as I do it all! Offshore inshore bait artificial cane pole etc. the point of these forums is to be helpful and relay information. The blue water forum is much better about that than this one which is why I typically only post in the blue water forum!
