Anchovies for dead bait.
« on: Jan 22, 2020, 03:55 PM »
Just bought a dozen good size fresh whole anchovies for about 3 bucks.
I have seen smelt and herring in threads for dead but not anchovies.
Will these make good pike bait? They really have a strong fishy smell so I think they would work.
Anyone use them? Any thoughts?
Don't fall in. Unless it's a big one.

We tried them once when we couldn’t find anything else and they worked just fine. They were all smaller, around 6 inches but we still caught lots of pike and pike up to 41 inches on them
