View Full Version : Where to get grass shrimp??

02-17-2015, 10:47 PM
Hey guys. I live in vacaville and can't seem to ever find a bait shop w/ grass shrimp. Tried suisun bait, Virgil's, and guns fishing & other stuff. I have a spot I can catch them in May but until then I have no grass shrimp readily available. Lol do any of you guys know of any places with a healthy supply of grass? Thanks.

A little far for u but try calling norms in vallejo, benicia bait n tackle and surf city anglers in Rodeo. They have them but not always. And it sells out quick.

Try Benicia bait. I guess they have their own shrimp boat

I called all over the bay, most bait shop that get grass shrimp sell out pretty fast.....due to the lack of rain it's hard to find them....

I was able to find some at Dockside in Pittsburg on Monday.

Yea u need to call right when the shops open. And if they have them get there asap. I was at Norms in Vallejo one day and he told me a guy from San Jose was on his way to pick some up. Another guy was in there buying some that said he was going to keep them alive for a few days before he could go out and hit the water.

Personally I'd hit Benicia bait up. Their grass/ghost almost always seems more lively and when i do get bullheads or suckers they are of good size.
