For the last 10 years or longer, my number one bait for bream is cut bait. Specifically, cut bream. I buy a box of red wigglers to get me started. One box of worms will last me for quite a few trips. After I catch a bream or two, I cut them up for bait, and that is all I use for the rest of the trip. First, I scale the bream, then I fillet it, then cut it up into small strips. 1/4 of an inch wide by 5/8 of an inch long is just about right. You do not have to rebait your hook very often. The skin will actually build up on the hook after you have put several pieces on. The bream tear the meat off, but can't tear off the skin. This works very good. Give it a try, you might like it too!!
