can somebody tell me what the heck a chub is?
i think its a bluegill, sunfish, perch, ext.
I've always wondered too...thanks for clearing it up.
I guess those things have a million names...
Here is some info.
Good site! A chub is like a minnow, but can get bigger. I have caught chub 15-16 inches before. I catch them in small creeks around here. I walk through the creek with an ultralight fishing with a small bobber and a piece of nightcrawler, they tear it up. Usually fish around roots, logs, and such. Make a great bait. I have caught all three main cats on them. Channels seem tolove them as cutbait. They are very bloody.
Also make a great bass bait, throw one out next to some cattails in a pond under a bobber-game over.
Chubs are in the minnow family. I catch them in small creeks using a little hook and small piece of worm.took a friend to catch some and he was throwing them back he thought they were baby bass.
It depends on where you live.
Us folks from out here in the sticks of eastern NC more often then not call a largemouth bass of any size a chub.
Thanks for the infro bro.:cool2:
Good flatty cat bait. I have caught em up to 10'':tounge_out:
We have chub here in the Uk - not sure is they are they same but heres a pic of our chub. These grow to 8lb plus.
That UK Chub looks quite similar to what we call a chub around here except yours is a heck of alot bigger. A chub is a common type of creek minnow here in Oklahoma. Much fatter and broader than a river shiner. As was said before........ GREAT BAIT. I catch just about anything on those things. In the spring I catch a bunch with a cast net and use them to catch saugeye and sand bass by the bucket loads. Often a good chub will catch three or four fish before his day is done.
Creek chub, river chub, hornyhead chub, etc. Here is a creek chub I trapped:
I see the clam larvae are in your area as well. All the scaled fish I have caught in streams for the past 35 or so years has had them including some large creek chubs. I have to laugh, my dad now deceased for many years, used to fish Ceasar Creek here in Ohio before it was impounded and he was so sure those were bass. I had to point out the fins and am still not concerned I convinced him. They are quite pretty and colorful once they get big, 6 inches or more and make a dynamite bait for anything that moves in the water I have found out later. If it weren't for Dad, I wouldn't be here. There are a couple of meanings in that saying.
Snail larvae, not clam duhhh. :cool2:
My second choice for catfish. My first coice for bass. I ususally catch them in small creeks when the weather is a little warmer. I haven't tried lately. It's probably too later for them now. Will actualy thrive in an aquarium. Are easier to keep alive than shad.
