    I've used cut and live bait with good success. I fish them on a carolina rig and when using live bait( bream ect.) I hook them right behind the dorsal fin.Cut bait I just thread it on and toss it out.I will have to say here lately I like live bait better.Been having some good luck with it the last few weeks.Best of luck to ya!

    I prefer cut bait more than live..I always seem to get bass from live baits.

    i caught a 6lbs lagremouth on tuesday night on a piece of cut bluegill. a first for me. but then i also caught a 31lbs flathead on a bluegill head. i catch more on heads than anything else. cut them right behind the gill plate and then trim off the fins. leave the guts hanging out of the head. if there are big flatties around they will eat it. as well as channels or blues. if you can use live gills then do it. if you are going to use live gills, dont use ones that are real small. use 6 to 7 inchers. they seem to work the best. better hae some stout gear though beacue a big cat will usually take live over cut any day. should also help with your bass situation
