Every predator fish over four inches long eats grass shrimp with relish. That makes them not only an important species in the Bay food web, but also good bait. In this episode, John Page shares anglers' secrets--where to find these small crustaceans and how to use them to catch your preferred fin fish. Not interested in fishing? He also explains how to cook them up for a fresh appetizer!
