out the bait listed and i could use just one, i voted worms ,hard choice though
shad is pretty good if u can keep them alive long enough
it all depends on what type of cat your targeting. flatheads i say bream, blues and channels eels. i voted for both
I also voted for eels and bream, I have caught my biggest cats on big eels and big bream. What a lot of people dont understand is that even a ten pound flat can eat the biggest bream so dont be afraid to put a slab on the hook, also dont be afraid to put an 18" eel on either.
I'd have to say in the river it's eel and shad, seem to catch more blues on eel and flatheads on the shad. Never done any good on the river with bream, but in the lake bream cut or dead outperforms everything else.
I use mostly shad but my biggest fish have been caught on bream.I would like to try eel but don't know where to get them.The only eels I have ever caught have been from slat water.

bream, hands down.
live bream by far for the flatheads, and large bream heads for the blues
Bream has been the ticket for me so far.I have just started trying eels and was impressed by how good and quick they worked the first time or two I also.I use the bream live and the eels I cut into pieces.
you really can't beat cut eel for channels
speaking of eel, anyone know where I can buy fresh frozen eel from???
I do well catching my own on rod and reel, but for planning a big trip I'd like to have a good amount...
Shad works great but i do catch alot of nice fish with crawdads
Bream work awsome but for us our best bait for the river has been big Horny Heads(creek chubs) hard to find though but we call them magic bait
Hard to beat some fresh cut shad. :cool2:
I like to use eels and bream.....off a half eel one night i caught 7 blues....now any single piece of bait that can handle catching 7 cats by itself is great in my book! isnt it funny how u can have 6 rods out and only one or two poles catch all the fish?
I like to use shad for blues and live bream for flatties. But have caught both fish on both kind of baits.
I've caught fish on all the bait listed. They all work well, but I guess if I have to choose one I would go with bream.
I am going to have to say, goldfish or bream. It all depends on where you fish and what time you fish at. At night the goldfish shine a little bit more than any other and that attracts more fish from what I have found out, but if you cut a little of the breams back it relaeases more oils into the water and that as well attracts fish. So it is all in what you can get and where you are going to be fishing at.
Hey guys where can gold fish be bought at and are they legal to fish with in NC and SC? Just wanting to try different things. Guessing it's the same kind that I can get at petsmart.
A lot of bait shops carry them. and they are legal as long as you don't release them alive into the water you are fishing. I don't think they are the same as the ones at petsmart. They are quite a bit larger and if you bought them that large at petsmart it would be like a 15 dollar coy or callico.
