I'm sure that it might work under the right circumstances but I tried it once and didnt get a bite. I ended up feeling like I wasted a good game fish instead. Heck it might have even been illegal for all I know?

Should be good bait. Just check the laws. Here in PA you can use any legally taken game fish as bait.

white bass have worked well for me and they are usually abundant.turn them large and smallmouth back cause shad work better anyhow.

There is a pond I like to fish that I can get plenty of dink bass out of, but no bluegill, I use the filets and cut bait sections and it works ok. I do like perch better though

It's perfectly legal here and I will gladly use a 6" bass if I find one while catching gills. I've caught some of my best cats on them. I never tried a grown up bass, just a few little ones here and there. In other words I wouldn't go bassin just for bait.
