I've found that nothing beats a live shrimp unless you're targeting catfish.

The salted shrimp bites (or whole shrimp cut upon use) work well and can save the day when live, fresh dead or frozen shrimp can not be found before hitting the water.

Another upshot is that they travel well without ice once cured. Great for extended paddle trips.

Okay, I've used ReelSkinny's method. Now it's morning and I'm going out to yak fish for three-four hours. What's the best "minimal" way to carry my prepped shrimp in the yak with me? Least room, smallest, lightest setup and keep them fairly fresh?

Keep on paddling and fishing until you augur in!

I'm not sure if it's the "best" way to carry live shrimp but what works for me is to put the live shrimp in a zip lock bag, leave the seal undone part way and place it on my fish towel on top of a couple bottles of frozen water in my soft sided cooler. I had shrimp stay alive for a couple days this way.

I think the main thing is to keep them as cool as possible without coming in direct contact with the ice.

I've never tried it with the shreaded newspaper but it kinda follows the idea of avoiding the direct ice contact and should also help keep the damp. Sounds like it would work well.

This far south, live shrimp are the go to bait for a lot of species. I still bring along a bait bucket, which doubles as a drogue when needed. When paddling, I bring the bucket into the cockpit, or the tank well. Having that shrimp smell in the water probably helps the bite a bit, too.

Bait tube
Easy to make and will not slow you down. Diameter is chosen for specific bait types so they line up one after another.

Leash to side of yak till you need bait.  Very cool!!
