Cheapest and easiest bait for anybody in this state is boiled crawfish. I throw all the scraps and what little crawfish didn't get eaten into gallon ziplock bags and freeze until trapping season. One bag at a time, lasts a few days. Great visual, and it dont rot fast but the crawfish smell gets Louder. when i throw some in a hole i know im going to catch something "Because im on location".Catches grays too. Don't know about y'all, but we get down on some crawfish when their in season! I get a lot of scraps!
"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid." Albert Einstein.
Seafood flavor catfood, with crawfish oil works well for dogproofs. I will say that dogproofs on creeks is a problem for me, but pocket sets work beautifully. I substitute catfood with actual crawfish, get catches every time.
