All the more reason to not use anchovies. Chub, sucker......STRIPER. Striper can be used as both bait and chum. it's fresh, doesn't stink, stays on your hook, easily replenished.....the benefits of not buying anchovies are many.
(I guess I could understand having 1 bag of anchovies to get the ball rolling. But for those who have access to suckers, carp, or chubs....use them. 1 sucker fillet can make a lot of good bait!)
I am located in Hanksville and you will be going right thru here on your way there coming from Colorado. There are 3 places in town to buy anchovies. Stop on by and ask any questions you may have. We go to the lake as many times as we can. Winter months are the best! I am also a small start up repair business in town. Rabbitbrush Repair & Storage. Just look for the boats next to the Hwy just north of town. We are always willing to talk to people going to the lake and swap stories.
