    I would think the shad or the perch would be great bait to use. You might even consider cutting up the perch to use as bait. Today, I caught a couple of small channel cats on cut perch. The biggest one was caught with a perch tail that had about a half inch of meat on the end of it. I had never fished with a tail before and was experimenting. Shad is always excellent bait.....

    Welcome to the BOC Gann. Cut the perch or shad into 3 pieces. I use the heads and gut pockets. Usually throw the tails away.
