    I recently found a place to catch some smallish carp and was wondering if they would make a decent cut bait for blues? I typically use shad or eel but just want to know if this is a viable bait option. Thanks in advance.

    Hey cut carp is some good bait for the blues, I have used it a couple of times and it works pretty good, hope you have some luck with it, im sure you will be able to catch some.

    CUT CARP IS GREAT BAIT. I USE IT IF I CAN NOT GET ANY SHAD, ALSO USE SMALL CARP ON LIMB LINE AND TROTLINE. CPR ANYTHING OVER 10 LB, AND EAT THE SMALL ONE:0a26:

    Makes very good bait for blues and can be used for flats if left alive. Good luck with the catfishing.

    A carp is just a big goldfish and would be good bait.
