Crawfish and shrimp are for human consumption.   icon_lol  learn to throw a cast net and get some shad or perch.  It will pay off on the fishing.  If you are looking to just have some bait always around for catching, then the punch baits seem to be the best.  They always catch some channel cats and never go bad.

I have a cast net.  Not a very big one, but my question was does anybody use them for bait.  Now I love to eat them by the pound at Nate's Seafood in Addison.

I use shad and perch for cats as well.

yep, make good bait and kitties luv em too. Once they start to migrate or if the lady ever fills up and runs dem mud bugs out of the ground, the kitties will be stuffed with em. Most fish regardless of species is a creature of opportunistic grocery shoppin. They will eat whut is most available and easiest to get. That will be shad cuz crawdads are not in great supply all the time for a catfish.

Tried'em a couple of times for cats without much luck in small lakes. Won't stay alive long once they're put on a hook and nothing much will eat'em dead. Can't cast'em very hard either or they come off or get torn up.
