Nobody actually believes the use of croaker for trout bait spells the doom of trout in Texas bay's do they?

Ps

Not against croaker being a game fish. But not for.It because I think it hurts trout. I'm for it because I sure miss the big golden croaker runs of years past. I consider croaker to be one of the better eating fish.

I sure miss fried whole croaker. If you want some big enough to eat, you can go to Calcasieu and find them. They got some monster croaker there - saw a 21" long one caught there once. Low and behold, I've never seen croaker used or sold as bait there. Their method of shrimping (stationary butterfly nets) doesn't yield baby croaker.

Is croaker the same thing as whiting? We always catch a few, what I'm guessing are whiting, on shrimp and just throw them back out on the hook hoping for something bigger.

tarpon croaker/crappie

croaker and crappie are one in the same, once they hit the grease(wet with water, little tony's and plain yellow cornmill). few home fries mixed in with a little tony's, Dr. Pepper over ice, hard to beat. that's a healthy one there.

True, key to both is eating them fresh!

If you can't keep a dozen alive, worry about people keeping a legal fish for a tourney, and complain about the weather maybe you need to reconsider fishing as a hobby...

I think you don’t know the secret to keeping bait and tournament fish alive this time of year if you can’t keep 1 dozen croakers alive. Y’all keep using your plastics and I’ll keep using live bait.
