heres the rule of thumb, if you plan on using them for steelhead the small ones are best. while kings seem to prefer the bigger sizes. silvers don't seem to care for them for some reason.

4.99 vs. 6.99 so i guess over all it is better to do the cooked ones then? seems they would cure up better? and have natural pink color to start.

I may have to get some of these and give curing them a try. Any hot curing tips before I destroy them?

the various Asian markets in the international district and central district in Seattle also have good prices on whole shrimp with head on. I saw some yesterday for $4.99 per lb.

The Asian markets are also some of the best places to buy Sardines.

There's a place called Ranch 99 or somethin similar on Aurora Avenue in Edmonds. It's a large Asian market store.

Careful with any dyes you use. An orange dye I tried ended up with purple prawns.

There's a Ranch 99 in Renton also, near Ikea. I usually go to the Asian stores when I want to buy shrimp for bait, whether whole or head-off. Lots of smaller out-of-the-way seafood/grocery stores in the Int'l District. They sell fresh or frozen shrimp, squid, sardines, etc. at good prizes for a lot less than places like Safeway QFC etc. the fish (bottom fish, salmon, steelhead) don't seem to care which store the bait came from.

i've never been able to get silvers to take an interest in shrimp...which is a big problem considering that by the time they arrive, i've typically used up my egg stock on the kings. good thing they like hardware just as much as they like bait.

i've haven't tried cooked prawns for bait...i've always used the raw ones, usually the smallest i can buy(cheaper and seems to work better for me), either raw or brined in a pro-glo(dye, not the cure) and pickling salt mixture.

if we aren't supposed to eat fish, why are they made out of meat?

silvers will take SS but have no intrest in prawns. maybe the scents are wrong or the color is wrong.

long before the dying of prawns was the fashion we took plenty of steelhead with them just plain cooked pale pink.

very interesting RR it must me the color. my buddy from yakima sleys the summer steelhead on the bws. come fall when the silvers pile up in the bws and jumping everywhere and fishinder is showing evidence of silvers he has never touched a silver with his prawns. he does not run a blade in tandem w/them either. or the way you do on the klick. hmmmmm?

don't rinse just lay them out on old clean dish towels and let them drain dry. then pack in rock salt.

Anybody found "head on", uncooked shrimp in the Tacoma area?
I used to buy a 5lb box of frozen cooked head on shrimp from the Rose brothers. They ran a little grocery store in Rainier, that was a long time ago.
