Ditto chicken breast strips...soaked in an attractant or not......most anything in the surf. Not much luck from a boat.
This memory from fresh water bank fishing. Used to catch any insects we could find for bait, but that's not the story.....this one time we didn't gather much bait. All dried up on some streamside rocks were a lot of shrimp shells. Dried up as all get out, hard, and brittle. Just the leftover shells. Looked like they'd been in the sun all day. Put 'em on the hook and caught some fish for a meal or two. Was young then, but still thought it was a cool discovery.
