    Default Cut bullhead?

    Has anyone ever tried using cut bullhead for bait? The tough skin makes it seem like it would stay on the hook pretty well. And the fatty, red, bloody meat from a bullhead seems like it would be a good bait to tempt channel cats. Thoughts?

    I don't see why not. I've caught channels on stranger things. I've used cut rock bass once, for lack of something better. I caught a few nice channels(6lb+) on it. Bullheads are supposed to be good live bait for flatheads as well.

    You would probably have some success with cut anything. Heck even cut off your big toe and put it on the hook. Make sure it's fresh though. The blood trait with a drifted toe should call them in really good.
