    I like to use them, I prefer them live just hook 'em through the eyes! I have caught cats on live and fresh dead chubs.

    Like TA2D said, we usually hook them through the eyes. Also clip the fins a l little, not too much. The big ones are pretty strong, enough to get you snagged in some heavy cover.

    I like to hook them through the tail right below the backbone. I prefer 3-5" live chubs.

    I used to use live chubs quite a bit. i Would hook them through the back, the tail and through the eyes. those were the most successful for me

    I've caught many flatheads (20-40 pounds) on chubs, the bigger the better. I hook them through the lips

    With the setup I run, I hook them through the back near the tail, enabling them to swim around.
