    what is the best way to fish with live chubs. how to hook, rig, weight, etc. never used them before live. trying to diversify my cat techniques. need a big fish. fishing small lakes(under 200 acres), and a very slow, smaller river.

    I have only used creek chubs on bank poles or what some call ditty poles. I use a large circle hook, hook right below the top dorsal fin, kinda like you would a bluegill, sunfish, etc.

    I set bank poles in hopes of getting some nice flatheads. Hope this helps.
