Slugs

A friend and I were discussing baits the other night and the use of slugs came up.

A quick Internet search and........... well check out the video.

Don't bring shame to our sport.

He died for dipshits too.

That video is hilarious.  I'd always heard that slugs were no good for bait, but mought have to try them if I ever git back to catfish water.

Re slugs:  we ran into an area in Western Washington where there is a race of white slugs, which got me curious enough to take pictures of them.  Some of us go for the finer things in life.

Washington State and British Columbia have Boone & Crockett size slugs on the wet side, but they are normally an army green color.  Some of these are snow white, and many are 6 or 7 inches long.  This one was well over six inches long but he clinched up when I put the ruler down beside him.

Want me to send you some by UPS?

My sister-in-law lives north of Seattle and when we were there once I saw a slug that were huge.  That thing was close to 6 inches long before I poured salt on it.

Try anything with caffeine on it to kill slugs. They ate alergic to it. I spread coffee grounds around my house and haven't seen a slug sense

WOW, I've never seen a slug anywhere near that big!  :shock2: That thing looks like a 2lb pork loin.
We always use shiners for big cats. Never heard of using slugs. Interesting :wo:

When it comes to stream trout, periwinkles rule!   :biggrin:

Thank you for the info re slugs and brook trout.  I am an old dog but learning.

Jim, re size of slugs:  I had to look them up and Wikipedia says that PNW banana slugs are the second largest in the world, up to 9.8 inches long.  A slug in Europe is the biggest, up to 11.5 inches long.

Just looking at that big slug, you would think that a worm harness rig with a couple of hooks spaced out would entice a bass.
