    there are fall fish all over the state, i use them everyonce in a while when i set minnow traps and they decide to go in. they seem to work ok. suckers and shiners are my bait of choice though.

    Fallfish make good Catfish bait. If there in the 4-5" bracket use them like live bait, dead or alive the cat love them. If there in the 7-8"+ cut them up in chunk's of about 2" plus dont forget to use the head, that's a chunk by it's self. Some guy's scale them first, I dont just make sure there's no scale's on the hook point befor you use it.
