    Anyone ever use the scraps from filleting channels as cut bait?

    I've tried almost every thing for cut bait. I think the best cut bait is fresh cut shad or fresh cut anything. I want it to be alive when i cut it, so it is dripping blood when i throw it in the water.

    The worst cut bait i ever used was channel cat but pond perch, shad & bass work well.

    I tried it, it didnt work. Dont know why, you would think guts is guts, but I didnt get the first hit, but caught several fish on the other pole with liver.
