    well i am not saying i have ever used bass for bait :wink:, but i do have a "friend" who has used bass for bait and cuaght flatties. he didnt catch as many as when using gills, but they will work if thats all you have. I, uhhhhh, i mean he would rather use gills or small channels for bait, but bass will work if thats all you can get.

    Personally I have'nt used bass, but I have heard they are an excellent bait for flatties.

    If one hits me while breaming I use the head for sure. They've always have caught a channel cat for me. They are legal here (few exceptions) but I don't purposely look for them. I say well worth trying them.
