I use the standard bait containers and only fill the 2/3rds full. Too full it swells up and fills the jars. If filled too much water can't flow thru the container I don't feel it works as well. I have used fish remains, fish meal, dry cat food and always go back to the pellets. I buy a 50# bag at a time and then break it down into gallon zip locks.
    Where you getting a 50# bag of shrimp bait? All I can find are buckets.

    The marine store in Valdez, Radio Shack in Valdez and then someone in town also buys them and sells the bags.

    Too bad I live in Eagle River, long drive for shrimp bait. Might have to plan a early season trip over in the boat from Whittier.

    Donaldson's Marine is supposed to have 44# bags. I knew I saw them somewhere in Anch.

    You are probably right Steve. I might need another. If I get time to go to the GASS on Friday I will stop by.

    they guys at Donaldsons told me they just put the 44lb bag in the larger bucket and just sell it like that. Hope it isn't the cheap crap.

    Two years ago the marine store over here only had a bag that was left over from the year before. Got it for a discount. Best stuff I have ever used. Usually takes a day or two to start breaking down but I got the best one day haul ever from it. I guess you cant measure a bait by its bag.

    I fill my bait cans about half way, then on the next pull I dump out about half of that and replace... That way I have mushy bait all the time. That works as long as the fleas don't show up.

    Potbuilders bait is great. We have messed with all sorts of concoctions over the years and his flat works. A bucket is usually more than enough for a season. Fill a nalgene sized bait jar 1/2 full and soak it for 2-3 days adding some fresh stuff occassionally if fleas are heavy.
    It works immediately and its easy to use.
    His brailer bags are so darn handy, hope he has plenty!

    Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..
