Can't think of the resort name but the outfit that runs out of St. Albans bay near Seguchie point sold me some shrimp last winter. Never got a bite on 'em but it was a new bait for me and I'm sure I wans't using them properly.

Are the shrimp that the perch are biting on really shrimp or mayfly larvae. I've seen perch cough these up before and suspected they maybe mayflies

Give Tutts a call....for some reason I thought I may have seen them there in one of the coolers in the back. Maybe it was just different size lava.....but worth a call if thats what your looking for.

Here you go. Freshwater Shrimp. They have a picture on the page. If you google it, you can find other information. Fly fishermen use similar baits, artificial/tied, not live.

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
