    I have had luck with chubs. Usually cut into small little chunks. I drift em below a float with a 7 foot rod and eight pound line. Hope this helps:cool2:

    shad are illegal if you get caught with them its a major ticket.
    other wise i might use them.

    Just pick up a pack a chubs from cabelas or sportsmans and drift them bad boys down the river and you will forget what shad are. Thats how i caught the two in my profile pic:wink:

    I've had good success with Re Side Shinners (Sportsman has them) and hamburger (mixed with flour)

    I think i need to try a little bit of every thing until i find something that work well. such as hot dogs and chicken feet. Yes chicken feet do work. Ive caught alot of cats on them in the little community fishing ponds.

    hey zeb when you get that carp pond cleaned out, scale, fillet, and cut to appropriate sized cunks with the skin on. channels love carp, and that would get you around the live bait regs.

    Check with the seafood department at your local supermarket, and see if they can order in some frozen mackerel. Thaw them out and cut into chunks! They have a real strong smell to them, like a shad has. Catfish go nuts over them.
