    Shad and/or skipps - skipps have the same stink as the shad but not as strong. both are top of the box but I have seen they sometimes will bite one and not the other. but for the most part its hard not to get a bite on either one. unless you go out with me and billy during a flash storm:smile2:

    Skipjack, Shad, Shrimp (Garlic), And Dip Bait. If they don't hit one of these I will go home and Fish on the BOC forum.

    :smile2:Yeah man that was a bad storm..it was raining sideways:eek:oooh:
    On the bait issue I like shad and skips the best,Sonnys dip bait for channels is hard to beat and gills are great flathead fare.

    ...If your out fishing and things are slow you might want too have some radishes on hand you never know when a school of vegan cats might cruise by your rigs..spray a little wesson oil on em as a strike attractor.:wink:

    I'll have to go with the Secret 7 dip bait. I haven't caught very many this year but the Secret has landed the one's I did catch.

    1.Shad
    2.Worm or nightcrawler
    3.Shrimp
    4.Livers
    5.Dip Bait (never used it, why I ranked it last)

    But as a couple of others mentioned, I'd probably prefer bluegill fillets above all these.:cool2:
