Eat your bait?

I've often wondered what ghost shrimp (sand shrimp) taste like and how you would prepare them... recently I found a video from a guy that calls himself the Wild Gourmet and used to serve them in his restaurant... Mole crabs, too....

I have eaten bait before... clams, mussels, etc... but never ghost shrimp...

Anyone ever try 'em?

No but I tried power bait once.

Wouldn't they call it something different than bait then?

How'd that work out for you?

I ate that Gulp fake corn stuff in an inebriated state...Don't recommend it.

Yup, I think it would be best for me to remain silent on this topic. :whistle:

And how was that? I'm guessing that it tasted something like paste with a generous hint of old shrimp....;)

well... I did it...

well... I did it...

Tried some fresh ghost shrimp that I harvested today.
Fried it up in a little olive oil and then removed the legs... ate it shell and all.

Tasted like a cross between pumpkin, crab, and shrimp. Not bad... the shell was very thin and crispy and the inside was... well.. kinda tasty, really...

It tasted like play dough but less salty and more like it smelled.

Ugh! I'm pretty good about not eating things labeled "not for human consumption". Too much of a traditionalist to be eating squiggly bugs,nope,not gonna make it. :naughty: You guys enjoy for me....I'll stick with pbj. :D Be safe.

I've eaten corn, crawdad tails, prawns,and herring which are often used as baits. But as RC said nothing labeled "not for human consumption"

LOL I bet it was. That stuff doesn't come off anything when any kind of moisture hits it.

Power bait wasn't near as bad as a live goldfish I chewed up once. That was a bitter fishy fish flavor. mmmm.

Those "squiggly bugs" are really closely related to crawfish... matter of fact, in Australia, they call 'em "yabbies"... the same name that they use for crawfish...
