      It was not too bad catching them, just hold on to the shell. slugs on the other hand, no way.

          I never have used them for bait but I have raised snails in my fish aquariums. The fish have not bothered them and they can breed and get out of hand. But I guess that if you bust the shell and they put out a bloody presence, the fish might go for them. It is always worth a try.

              Guess I was thinking only of slugs. I've actually eaten snails---once. They tasted like garlic butter and cost too much. I'll be anxious to hear the results.

                  I've never tried snails for bait. Earth worms and night crawlers for me.

                      I heard they work good but never tried them. I have 1 in my goldfish pond and its never bothered by the fish.

                          Snails are excellent bait for catfish. I use them.
