Probably sounds crazy but I've never used live bait (not since my kids were little using minnows in fresh water). We use spoons mostly and soft plastics. How is live shrimp sold? by the lb, oz, pint? What should I expect to pay (crystal river area)? Do I bring a bucket in to the bait shop with me or do they put them in a bag? How much do I need for 3 guys for a day of fishing? Are there different sizes? wow :-?
