There's a reason live bait trips cost more that cost is used to purchase the best bait available at the time of your trip. At least a day a week if not more is spent securing the best bait and taking extremely good care of it until your trip. I try not spend time catching bait while your on your trip. It is necessary some times but if at all possible your charter is for fishing not for bait catching. Typical 1/2 day we take 10 dozen live shrimp - this gives you and your crew the best chance of lot of action and hopefully some nice fish during your trip. Great for kids in the summer since they usually get a bite before their patience wears out! Everything eats live shrimp so all species are can be targeted on a four hour trip
Multiple Species Available on Live Bait trips
