    Just a thought fellas...I was thinking of doing a live bait(bluegill) or cut bait combo with dip bait.I would just position the dipbait worm before the live or cut bait and fill it with Sonny`s.Has anyone tried this before?I would think it would get the Flats or Channels attention alot faster...Let me know what you guys think.

    Tried it out yesterday and had a bunch of hits but no takers except when i was about to leave.I had a live gill on the hook and smeared him with the dip bait.Within 10 mins...my clicker was going nuts.Unfortunately,the fish got into some weeds and the line snapped right by the hook.I`m going out again tomorrow to try it and maybe i can get me my first flat this year.

    Seems like it would work, putting out more of a scent trail with live bait movement should attract a large cat better.
