Week 2: Grocery Store Bait for Tyler W Created: Sat, 06/13/2020 - 04:00 Default: No

I tried a variety of new things with no luck. First was chopped clams (very small pieces), then canned crab (shredded), and finally shrimp. Fish love shrimp, but sunfish peck it off easily. I moved to faster current to get away from the sunfish and got a nice (~26") river redhorse. One fish that doesn't like shrimp is bigmouth buffalo. This buffalo was feeding in some foam. I decided to "match the hatch" with a bit of marshmallow on a #6 circle hook. Worked like a charm and stayed on the hook pretty well.

This takes the cake. I have tried marshmallows for bigmouths before camouflaged in the cottonwood seed patch and no luck. It's like trying to win the lottery with that tactic I think. Nicely done.
