Couple ?'s(these would be ones I caught, not the softshells you get at bait stores...though the smaller ones do have kinda a "softer" shell anyways). 1. Are they good bait? 2. Weight? Do you recommend a really heavy weight(if so what wt?), light wt, or no weight? How would you recomend rigging. When night fishing for cats I typically just use a snelled hook (like a 1/0...the biggest ones (for the most part)in the river I fish are probably only about 7-8 lbs..and that's big..most are in the sub1 - 2 lb range....ie "channel kittens") with a couple split shots just below the tye-in loop. 3. I'm gonna assume that no crayfish is too big for a channel cat, do you agree? 4. On the bigger ones do you cut off the pinchers? 5. How do you hook them? 6. How do they store in a minnow bucket on a body of water (would probably be for a week or two)? 7. Any other tips (like move it every minute or two in case it found a rock to hide under)? thanks!
