    Does anybody use goldfish here for bass? I've heard there're good for flatheads and large channel cats, but if so, why not bass? Seems like they wouldn't refuse one if presented right.

    Wondering becuz the petsmart's goldfish are just 20 cents for ones over 3 inches, and they could be a lazy way for me to fish for bass, without having to retrieve lures.

    It's your 20 cents, check the regs and make sure goldfish are legal.

    I'm not positive about being legal or not, but a 3" goldfish is almost big enough to eat the Bass around here.:big_smile:

    I checked ODNR website and couldn't find anything prohibiting goldfish, plus I know you can buy them in some bait and tackle stores. I wouldn't see why it wouldn't be OK to get them from the pet store.
