    Try it both ways. The fish will soon tell you which they prefer.:lol: :smile2:

    cut chub catches all channel cats.live chubs catch bigger fish.

    what i do is hook it alive and let it sit for awhile and then if nothing bites i reel in if the chub is dead i'll take a rock and smash the part that does not have the hook in it thats when i usually get my strikes. but i give the live chubs a chance first.

    I do kindof what purebone does...

    throw out a live chub, and after it dies cut it up. good way to kill 2 birds with 1 stone :cool2:

    I use cut or smashed chubs for smaller channels but use the live ones for the larger fish.
