you cannot lave them out of the water or their bag for too long or they dry up like a live mightcrawler does when it's been seitting in the sun for a week. They will not "reabsorb" water to come back to life. So once it's ddry, it is no good.
I used them last week on Saguaro for 10-15 minutes on a c-rig. Didn't do any good with them, but that isn't saying much. The bass were chasing shad at the time. I'm sure they work as good as any other. Don't leave them on your hook they dry up and are very difficult to remove.
I been using them for about the last three weeks at Saguaro and at Pleasant Drop-shoting. I'm pleased with the way they been working. They 're good only for a couple of fish and yes they dry out pretty fast. I will buy some more. Bullet Head.
I won't ask mitch what color he's been using, but I have the watermelon/red/glitter and green pumpkin. Also, I bought a different brand called Chompers. they seem to have a slimmer profile and come in garlic with heavy salt. I can't wait to try them!
