Default Can you tipped your tube jigs with raw shrimp instead of sucker

The traditional method for fishing lake trout is tipping your tube jigs with a small piece of sucker meat for scent. Since I don't have any suckers left but lots of raw shrimps, can I still catch lakers by tipping it with a small piece of shrimp?

Sucker meat is for suckers. Use salmon egg Smelly Jelly in either liquid or paste. Leave a good scent trail. Keep the SJ in the freezer when not in use.

Yep tip with anything except live bait unless permitted but most the laker lakes I know in CO don't allow live bait

Raw shrimp works... Squid works as well and stays on the hook really good!

Cooked/frozen shrimp works too, and you can eat it for lunch!

As the Teacher said squid works well and it is a lot cheaper than sucker meat .

Thanks for all the responds guys. I will take a few senior citizens, a 69 years old Trump's supporter, and a 68 years old Russkie (what the h... I am doing) out to Williams Forks tomorrow without the sucker meat. I will blame your guys if we don't entice the lakers to bite lol.
