    Which is better, live bluegill or cut bluegill for blue catfish, I usually take a hook and rig the bream like you would a jig when you push the tube up onto the jighead.

    It depends on the situation. The bigger the bair the bigger the fish.

    i would definately go for live. ive used live gills for blue cats for as long as i can remember...every time i cut them up or used dead ones i usually caught more turtles than anything
