:cool2:Cut VS Live tell why and post pics of how you cut or hook the bait.:cool2:
I mostly use cut bait but I like cut hotdogs also:wink:
first off i love chilli cheese dogs. second i cant keep bait alive so i freeze it and cut it
Cut bait for Channels most of the time. Live bait for Flatheads ALWAYS. Why? because that is what they eat. Flats are mostly preadators they likes em live and wigglin! Channels are like hieana's they will eat most anything.
My worms stay alive until I thread em on a hook and dunk em in the water. Then, they turn to catfish bait. Works for me.:wink:
Add some Chile, onions, hot jal pepper relish and a shot of mustard on my dog. I'll take 4 of em.:big_smile:
now when you guys are using cut bait what is a good hook for cut?
Also should you use fresh or frozen?
Another thing what portion of the body works best??
I use cut 80% of the time
I use cutbait 95% of the time although my largest Blue was on a live shad. I just do better with cutbait. Blood in the water seems more attractive to me for catfish.
Cut Skipjack. Hard to beat.
Let's see, cut or live. Both.
Why? Because they like both.
Type of hook? Circle and Kahle.
Fresh or frozen? Fresh is better.
What portion? The part with guts.
Photo's? Don't have any.
Anything else? :smile2: LOL
I prefer live because it sends vibrations in the water to attract the fish your after............RAT
I use live bait for Flatheads and cut bait for Channels and Blues
Skipjack including the heads work great.
I cant go either way on that one. It just depends on what they want that day.
The fish you see in our avitar were caught drifting using cut shad heads with the gut /gizzards inside [cut on angle] from head to anal fin, this works for drifting 80% of the time. If i'm targeting Flatheads live is best but if I cant get any it's crappie heads or cut Skipjacks. A catfish has thousands of taste receptors in the skin so maybee that's why so many are caught using cut/ scented baits???
I use live bait for bigger fish the only reason. cut bait to catch more of a quantity.
live sunnies or gills hooked near the tail for flatheads, gill or sunny heads as cut bait for channel cats, i use 8/0 gamu octopus circle hooks for live bait and 5/0 gamu circle hooks for cut bait
really it just depends on what your fishing for.channels and blues use cut bait,with flatties use live bait.
I prefer live bait for most of my fishin but if its not available I will use cut bait, or artificial stuff.
i use cut baite i have found that i do best with it even with flatheads my bigest fish come from cut 75lb flat on cut and 96.66 blue on cut works for me 95 % of the time
