I'm looking to improve my catfish game this year. I've used some hooks & marinades on raw shrimp that work, but I'm wanting to fine tune some things. What is your favorite hook for raw shrimp? Do you like it marinaded too? And, do you catch more anchored or with a slow drift?

okay so circle hooks it is

wacky rig the shrimp or thread it all the way through with just the point exposed? I have done it both ways but I don't forsee a circle hook allowing you to thread all the way through and still get a good hookset.

You might try a very short "hair rig", something perfected by the European carp anglers for their doughballs. The Europeans are light lears ahead of us Yanks when it comes t bait fishing; one may do VERY well to study their methods. We win on artificials, but they clean our clocks on bait fishing.

They invented the quick strike rig, as an example of a practical and efficient rig that many on this site are acquainted with. Really, study those limeys and up the bait game!!

I love fishing bait. It is not just for kids... ;)
