    If I were fishing gold fish id use them live. Theres too many other free bait fish that you can cut up if you want to.

    I have primarily heard of using gold fish for flatheads, but I guess they could work on blues. I only use cut bait for blues

    Well i think it would work but cut is better. Here in va we use many cut baits and 1 or 2 live baits.

    I have caught blues on live goldfish fishing for shovels, and shovels on heads fishing for blues. I'd try them alive first and see how it goes, you can always cut them up later.

    Kinda funny that I stumbled across this post because I've caught 4 Blues this year and all 4 were caught on Live Goldfish.

    "...would gold fish live or cut be a good bait for blues?? ..."

    Save your money and go with readily available baits that are in your lake.
