Any smaller fish that swims in that same river. If you have herring or shad, I would use that first. Next would be the sunfish like bluegills or crappies. a small carp would get a monster and last to go would be a nice sized legal bass!
in the spring i catch plenty of cats and anything else on night crawlers
the beggining of summer swith to small green sunfish and minnows
summer i use carp and sand toads and stink baite
fall i use carp
but i catch fish on shrimp all thrue the warm season so i would have to say the baite i always have on hand are shrimp
For channels I use chicken or beef liver,cutbait or live bait such as blue gills , chubs, and suckers.Channels can also be taken on pieces of hotdog and night crawlers as well as stinkbaits.Channels can also be taken on crawdads and shrimp. For flatheads I use fish, alive or dead, whole or cut.I`ve never caught a flathead on stinkbait or liver,they seem to like fish as bait.
