QUOTE(BobbyBass @ Aug 10 2009, 12:25 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Last week there was a question about lamprey being used as bait. I wrote the DNR and their reply is "No" according to the "2009 Michigan Fishing Guide" on page 7.

To bad, I bet they would work good.

I thought bait=something that fish eat, not the other way around!


Seriously, though, I bet they would work pretty good. Kind of like an enormous leech. The same as goby's. They WOULD be great bait, if permitted. Perhaps a tackle company will begin to manufacture soft lamprey plastics? Gulp! Lampreys!

Believer makes some plastic lamphrys, they have them at bass pro shops. $19.99, 10", 5oz. THere a soft swimbait with an upturned tail.

I'm not sure a plastic lamprey is any better than any other plastic bait. The reason a dead lamprey would be so good is that the nature of the beast makes for a bloody, oily bait that I've read draws serious attacks by pike. So I can only imagine that a muskie would love them too. Google lamprey as bait and you'll find numerous links about them being excellent pike baits.
