We are tourists and avid fishermen, and are trying our luck at Alaskan Shrimping in Port Valdez. Since we are pulling pots by hand, we are only using two pots, and I have a question on how to use the bait pellets in the shrimp pot. I'm using a handful of pellets in an orange Scotty container which swell to fill the container about 2/3 full when wet. How often should I replace the bait with fresh pellets? We're pulling the pots about each 24 hours and are getting about 24-35 shrimp per pot per pull.
Thanks in advance for any help.
