Default Shrimp question

I came down from MI last year and surf fished with frozen shrimp from a bait shop in Destin. I caught a few fish, but after reading more on this forum, everyone is talking about FRESH shrimp. Do you guys get it from seafood stores or what? Also, remind me again if you take head off and/or peel it? Has anyone ever dyed shrimp with jello? We use that for steelhead up here in MI. It gives em something different to chomp on. Thanks.

I just buy 1/2 pound of shell on shrimp while at the fish house when I get my ice.

I buy from either joe patti or marias. I prefer to peel mine.

Sometimes it's cheaper and you can get fresher bait from the guys selling on the side of the road. There's always one near my Mom's house in OS, MS. Three buck or so a pound, they're always good and fresh. Nothing like getting to the ramp and all they have is frozen stuff..

I buy the 40 to 60 count at Joe P's for $2.99/lb. I use what I can fresh and freeze the rest. I also peel my shrimp, the fish seem to prefer that and I have no reason why?
