    It all depends on the time of year.

    Springtime: Shad Gizzards, Shrimp, Nightcrawlers and Cutbait.
    Summertime: Bloodbait, Dipbait and Livebait ( bluegills, alewifes, shad,etc.)

    Fall: Livebait, Cutbait, maybe some Shad Gizzards

    i would have to say shiners fresh or frozen, catalpa worms (seasonal), dip bait, are my normal go to baits.
