    I don't see any reason why they would not work, assuming you put the bait where the fish are. Last year I caught a nice eye using a "gummy worm". Yes I do mean the chewy candy "gummy worm" It was a char./yellow worm.. :)

    Hey Rick. I was chewing on a few gummy worms myself. Thought they felt like a plastic bait, smelled sweet, figured why not give it a try! Took me about 10 min. before the eye hit it. Showed it to Joe Wolf and I'm not sure he believed me when I told him what it hit. Come to think of it, I have another batch ripening in the candy jar right now. May just take a few with me next time out!! ;)

    You need to work that shrimp program. Tell her to get a bag so you can have "Surf n Turf". Cook up a steak, two of the shrimp, save the rest for the cats. :)

    only problem with that,is she always buys cooked shrimp :rolleyes:
    she does not understand the concept that you don't cook precooked,ready to eat shrimp :rolleyes: :confused:

    That's o.k. Leave those cooked shrimp out in the sun for awhile and they will get right in a hurry. Just be sure to wash your hands after you bait up.. :D I do mine with a little Purell. Started using Purell as a result of a comment my Dr. son-in-law made... :D :D
     

  9. Gummy worms?? I guess if the fishin's slow you could snack on them. They sure taste better than Canadian Night Crawlers. Do you think the sour ones would work better/worse than just plain gummy worms. I think I might have to try these too. Even if they don't work for the fish they will be mighty tasty for me. :D
