    I would say it is a toss up between asian carp and shad. I have not had any luck catching skip jack and have not tried them. I use a cast net, so I would say I am would pefer asian carp because we have them jump into the boat. (Less work for me). I have had a hard time of late getting shad have spent as much as an hour and half trying to get shad. We have plenty of bites with cut asian carp in the Missour River. Asian carp have tough skin and don't come off the hook easily. Have caught 2 cats on the same asian carp, althought we usually change after every fish.

    I like cut/live gills. For eaters, I go with Secret 7 dip bait:wink:

    Got to go with Robb on this one..... I'm finding that cut gills is sometimes better than live.... but then the bait that I take usually starts with Mackerel, and then some stink, and clams and liver tied on...
