Greetings!

We have all tried earthworms, atta & and all sorts of secret blends to get a bite... I have a fundamental question:
Since the best baits come out of the lake/river itself, has anyone ever tried freshwater clams & snails as bait?

I know for a fact that freshwater shrimp makes good bait... what about the other bugs found in the water???

Appreciate feed back if its been tried before!

Cheers,
IG

Hi Indiangypsy,

I've used freshwater clams on the Cauvery (Meke dhatu) to catch catfish. As far as I remember they were pretty effective. Broke the shells open and used the fleshy part inside.

Regards,

Mighty Marlin.

Used freshwater mussels the day we first met at maison de pompe. Big bite, lots of clicking on baitrunner, etc-it was le Nozzin-must have been a 'T' :(
